Pop in the fridge and enjoy this easygoing selection.  A special thanks to this year's Wine Tasting Sponsors.  We appreciate your continued support of ACG St. Louis!

ROSE

Le P'tit Coup
Beautiful pink color with garnet reflections, brilliant and crystalline. Fine and delicate nose reminiscent of red fruits. The aromatic mouth, full, opens out with finesse and balance. Red raspberry, strawberry and melon dominate the fruit flavors.

WHITES

Domaine d'Escausses Vigne Galante
Ripe and warm gamay perfect for cool weather with loads of acidity and a soft texture. Plummy and pleasant with prominent cherry and raspberry scents and just enough earth to remind you that it’s French. Try with a slight chill for a refreshing red.

Lagar de Costa Albarino
Translucent green in color with notes of kiwi, kumquats and ripe sweet Greengage plum. Tart, bracing acidity adds a sour-then-sweet guava candy flavor before soursop and lemon round out the unctuous finish.

Il Sognatore Cortese
Exotic and aromatic of jasmine, white peach, stone fruits, and a touch of mint. In the mouth, the wine is bright with lemon-lime acidity and a palate refreshing finish.

REDS

Mazziotti Merlot
Young vines that yield an intense ruby red colored wine. Soft and supple, elegant and balanced with pronounced scents of raspberry jam, vanilla and violets. On the palate the wine is soft with just a little tannic grip and loads of pleasant berry fruit, most noticeably strawberry and raspberry.

Terres d'Alice 
Named after Pierre Andre’s Great Aunt Alice, this beaujolais village is just like the late Matriarch - fun, flirty, easy going and appreciated by everyone. Fruity on the nose and palate, this gamay has a touch more weight thanks to some fruit sourcing from cru Brouilly. The nose is all creamed berries and bramble that translates to flavors of baked cherry pie, super ripe strawberries, sweet herb tea and enough spice and grip to let you know it’s French. Pro Tip: put a slight chill on this one before drinking.

Petit Cot du Rin du Bois
Malbec with only 3 days of extraction! The result is a grape-y, fruity, light bodied elegant wine loaded with berry flavors and a silky mouthfeel.
