FEATURED WINES of the MONTH:

 

With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching, love is in the air here at the Corner Stone.  This month we feature a Champagne and a Bordeaux, both of which pair nicely with chocolate, roses and romance!

 

veuve

Veuve Clicquot (Champagne, France)

Blend: 50-55% Pinot Noir, 15-20% Pinot Meunier, 28-33% Chardonnay


92 Pts. 
 “Tightly knit, focused by racy acidity and a streak of minerality, this offers subtle notes of white peach, anise, biscuit and kumquat.  The refined finish echoes a smoky note.” December 2012 Wine Spectator

A full-bodied, rich champagne with ripe apple flavors and a long, creamy finish.

Chateau Picau Perna

2011 Chateau Picau-Perna Bordeaux (Saint-Emilion, France)

Blend: 41% Merlot, 41% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc.

 

Bright and clear burgundy color with crimson highlights.  Flavors of ripe red fruits and berries balanced with hints of earthiness.

 

Saint-Emilion is the oldest wine area of the Bordeaux region of France.  Its wines are the most robust of the Bordeaux and are more approachable at an early age due to the prevalence of the Merlot grape.
