Wine of the Week – Le Comte de Parm

Our Wine of the Week today comes from Le Comte de Parm. Full details on these great wines is below so read on.

We only have a few bottles of each in stock at the moment with more expected to arrive tomorrow. There were some delays due to the weather. These wines are available for order online, in store or by contacting me directly.

Also, we still have seats available for tomorrow’s Onyx Moonshine Tasting Event. If you haven’t yet tried moonshine, this is a great way to sample it and learn about the differences and similarities compared to various other liquors. See below for details.

As always, thank you for your business. Until next time…

Cheers!

Le Comte de Parm2010 Le Comte de Parm Hautes-Cotes de Beaune

Special Price – Only $12/bottle ($144/case)

buy-nowIt’s not every day that you find a wine of this quality for such an affordable price. This Pinot Noir, coming from the Cotes de Beaune in Burgundy, France, has lots to offer without digging deep into your pockets.

It’s grown along the hills in the small town of Beaune. Composed of 100% Pinot Noir, it delivers pretty light red fruit, spice, and hints of vanilla on the nose. Then generous flavors of cherry, with that classic touch of earthiness you expect out of Burgundy. It’s followed with light and dusty tannins that make this wine drink exceptionally well on its own or pair perfectly with duck, grilled chicken, or roast turkey. This is a great find, and at $12, it should be a “buy the case” wine.

Le Comte de Parm2010 Comte de Parm Nuits-Saint-Georges Vielles Vignes (Old Vines)

Special Price – Only $32/bottle ($384/case)

buy-nowIf you aren’t familiar with Burgundy, it’s all about location, in this case, Nuits-Saint-Georges to be specific. Located half way between Dijon and Beaune, Nuits-Saint-Georges is small town with only about 5000 inhabitants that produces some truly outstanding wine. Just north of Nuits-Saint-Georges runs the string of grand crus, from Ramanee-Conti to Chambertin. Le Comte de Parm is one of the smallest producers in this area, making less that 1500 cases of wine per year.

When you take your first sip out of this bottle you will see what we are so excited about. This wine is all about elegance. It’s more refined than the little sister we explained above. Still offering great red fruit on the nose with much more earth, depth, and length on the pallet. This delicious wine will age gracefully for the next 10+ years, but is spectacular out of the gate as well. Give it a little air time, and you can see why we are so excited about this one!!

This will pair great with turkey or salmon, but roast a fillet or any delicate red meat. This wine will not disappoint you, it’s well worth the investment.
