Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,

A glass of Châteauneuf-du-Pape is like a trip to the south of France. Aromas of violets and herbs intertwined with succulent flavors of raspberries and licorice, amid subtle hints of earthiness and you are transported to the lavender and thyme fields of the Rhône Valley.

Cuvée du Vatican The Southern Rhône has had a recent run of superb vintages and the 2005 Châteauneuf-du-Pape is already drawing comparisons to the superlative 1998's. Wine Spectator has rated the vintage an astonishing 96-99 points and Rhône fanatic Robert Parker has scored it 95 points.

We are constantly surprised at how underpriced Châteauneuf-du-Pape is compared to the other great wines of the world. It is inevitable that the prices will ultimately catch up to the quality of the wine and realities of the marketplace.

For this weeks email special, we have selected bottles from two historic Châteauneuf-du-Pape producers that we feel represent outstanding values. These deep, generous wines will age beautifully and at these prices make an excellent investment for your cellar. Here's the deal…

France vs. America with Yannick Benjamin
Wednesday, June 27th - $75

France vs USA Join us for a classic old world - new world showdown as we delve into the different terroirs and wine making practices of France and the United States. We will sample the noble varietals Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Syrah and Viognier from each country, then compare and contrast how the different viticultural and vinification techniques employed help create the flavors in the glass.

How To Taste Wine with Yannick Benjamin
Wednesday, July 11th - $60

Tasting We've offered this seminar before but found it so essential we decided to repeat it because it will help fine tune your palate and dramatically increase your drinking pleasure. Tasting wine involves three senses (sight, smell and taste) that identify four primary components (sugar, alcohol, acid and tannins). Once you develop the skills to distinguish those elements a whole new world will open up as your senses will be heightened and you will be able to communicate more eloquently about the flavors you taste... Learn to taste like a professional, without any preconceptions.

All wines will be tasted blind for this seminar which will be taught by Yannick Benjamin, who finished 2nd in the "Best Sommelier in America" competition and first in the blind tasting portion.

For reservations call us on 212-924-6999 or e-mail Andy.
All Seminars run from 6:30-8:00pm and are held in the store.

We hope to see you here...

Jean-Luc Le Dû.
