New Wines in the Store

by Russ Anderson on May 24, 2017

Some of the store’s top selling wines have shown up on the latest Kermit Lynch container. Some of these wines have been sold out for a while and return just in time for summer sipping. Part of the fun of the wine world is the great diversity and range of wines. The fact that not every wine is for every person is actually exciting to me. Half the adventure is finding unique wines that uniquely please you. Two favorites that have returned are the Dupeuble wines, both red and white, and the Bouvier Montre Cul bottling from Bouvier.

DupeubleDupeuble Beaujolais

The Dupeuble family has been making wine in Beaujolais since 1512. So for an amazing five centuries!?! they have been providing the wine drinker great value. The red is full of bright red fruit where bing cherries intermingle with boysenberry and black berry. The white is a fantastic Chardonnay that is a crowd pleasing wine that is light on the pocket book.

First, this is NOT the Beaujolais of most people’s perception. But Caviste customers already know this. Second, these are classic wines (500 years of wine making experience) and great values. They are tremendously food friendly at are often

Dupeuble Blanc – $17
Dupeuble Rouge – $16

This is just an awesome value in red Burgundy. 100% Pinot Noir, it is grown on slopes so steep they can’t be built on, so the vineyard is within the town limits of Dijon. As well, the harvesters can’t help but face the rear of the person in front of them, therefore the vineyard name, “En Montre Cul.”

This wine has been popular at wine dinners and in the store and we are glad to have the new vintage in stock. 2015 was a difficult vintage, as the last few have been in Burgundy. The best producers, like Bouvier, have produced wonderful wines just in limited quantity. On the trip, I noted the wine was another strong performer with nice richness and good length to ensure it ages well for 4 to 5 years as well.

If you like Burgundy or enjoy Pinot Noir, I would recommend stocking up a little on this wine, another value at $28.
