Wine Pairing Bottles:
Sigalas 'A/M' Cyclade, Greece 2018 Assyrtiko Blend $28.00
Sigalas is based on the picturesque island of Santorini and makes some of the most mineral driven wines in the entire Mediterranean. Assyrtiko, the grape, often has the flinty lemony quality of great Chablis, while Monemvasia adds herbaceousness.
Belliviere 'L'Effraie' Coteaux Loir, France 2016 Chenin Blanc $46.00
100% Chenin Blanc. This cuvee is fermented in 25% new oak which adds a wonderful counterbalance to the lighting bolt acidity and chalkiness. I like to call wines like this 'alot of alot' because of their mouthfilling complexity and texture. A wow wine.
Karydas, Naoussa, Greece 2015 Xinomavro $35.00
Xinomavro is the star red grape of Greece and has an uncanny resemblance to Nebbiolo. Compared to the Diaporos below, this is more medium bodied with dried cherry fruit and bright acidity. Classic roast chicken wine.
Kir-Yianni 'Diaporos' Macedonia, Greece 2007 $70.00
87% Xinomavro 13% Syrah. From the depths of our cellar. This wine is honestly a bit heavy for this meal, but we couldn't pass up the chance to offer a truly world class, collector level Greek red with over a decade of bottle age. Decant before serving.
