Hi Everyone,

Today I am going to pass on some tasting notes for several of the wines that Mr. Asimov has written about in the last two weeks. He is one of my favorite wine writers and has a great style and palate. Last week Eric covered Beaujolais Cru. As many of you know I am the buyer for the Beaujolais region and a great fan of the wines. Several of the wines that Eric wrote up we carry. Here are some tasting notes for related wines:

Domaine des Terres Dorees (Jean-Paul Brun) Beaujolais Blanc 2008
This wine is made from a very small plot of chardonnay the Jean-Paul owns and is one of the best examples of non oak influenced chardonnay available from France. The color is very clear pale straw. The nose of the wine has a great deal of minerality and some melon and earth to it. The taste is all fruit upfront and quite a good amount of structure with a long dry finish . . simply put: Amazing wine!

Domaine Des Terres Dorees (Jean-Paul Brun) Beaujolais Rose 2008
This is Jean-Paul's Great rose . . . one of the best roses we got this year! This is made from 100% Gamay grape and there is very little of this made each year. It's a pink wine- Really pink! The nose evokes white flowers, great minerality and zesty red current and ripe cherry. A fun and highly rated rose that has a very limited availablity!

We will be tasting both of these wines and a few more amazing Beaujolais including several Cru wines from Jean-Paul and other winemakers Today from 4-7. Come by and check them out!!

Next up- Following Eric Asimov of the Times part 2!
