Dear Friends and Wine Lovers,
As Thanksgiving approaches, we are once again facing the perennial question - which wine is perfect
On Wednesday, The New York Times tasting panel recommended an excellent group of wines… but
maybe we’re prejudiced because both Florence Fabricant and tasting coordinator Bernard Kirsch chose wines they bought here at
Le Dû’s Wines. Eric Asimov gave us a further compliment when he wrote that, "Bernie managed to get an uncommonly good deal on
this one. Felsinas are often more expensive than the $25 he paid"... We hope that doesn’t destroy our reputation as a high end wine shop.
The truth is, taste is subjective and no single wine will work with the wide variety of tastes, textures and
aromas that fill up our plate on Thanksgiving. For instance, Ruth Reichl the legendary food critic of The Times and current editor in chief of
Gourmet Magazine suggests American Pinot Noir for Thanksgiving. So what should a true gourmand do?
We recommend the Award Winning, Le Dû’s Wines Thanksgiving Three Pack which includes
the following wines...
Qupé Marsanne 2005 - best white at The NY Times tasting.
Felsina Chianti Classico Riserva 2001 – highly recommended at The NY Times tasting.
Baileyana Pinot Noir 2004 - highly recommended by Le Dû’s Wines.
On the shelf these wines cost $76.97
Our special offer gives you 10% off bringing the price down to $69.27
