FOOD + ENTERTAINING Holiday Delights The Wine List Jeff House of Bond Street Wines has shared his knowledge, expertise and must-have wines to keep on the shelf during the holidays. You and your guests will enjoy his outstanding selections for holiday entertaining. CLARENDELLE BORDEAUX 2015 Beautiful golden-yellow color with green highlights. The wine is round, rich and luscious on the palate. The bouquet features aromas often found in sweet white wines, with hints of apricot, white peaches and grapefruit. The wine shows great minerality along with fresh, powerful fruit flavors, as well as the concentration and structure of a great white wine. 2015 Clarendelle ticks all the boxes for a great vintage! FRATELLI BERLUCCHI BRUT, FRANCIACORTA DOCG ‘25’ is so named after the number of months from the grape to the glass. Made of 100 percent Chardonnay it has a pale lemon color and a stream of pinpoint bubbles. It is immediately fresh, lively and appetizing with aromas of apple and delicate blossom, and a little nutty note adding a hint of vanillin creamy richness. Bright and most enjoyable in an aperitif or shellfish and seafood dishes. LA GRANGE DE QUATRE SOUS, CUVÉE GARSINDE 2013 It is a juicy, dense wine that exhales aromas of prunes, blackcurrants and tobacco. Full in the mouth, it leaves to its final notes of black cherries. It can be kept without hesitation at least 10 years without losing its vivacity. n HOLIDAY 2016 69
