Fine Wine Sale! Incredible Bottles for Thanksgiving and More

Be the Favorite Guest at the Table!

The feast is often the focus at the Thanksgiving table….but should it always be that way?? We’re pretty sure that if you show up to dinner with a bottle or two from the Beverage Warehouse fine wine cave, the oohs and ahhs won’t just be reserved for Aunt June’s green bean casserole!

We want you to be the favorite guest at the table, and we’re making it easier from November 18 – 22 with a limited time 15% off sale on a few perfect Thanksgiving wines. We’ve been saving a handful of these back-vintage bottles in our temperature-controlled Wine Cave, and they’re in peak condition for popping.

Read on for details about the wines included in the sale, and then email info@beveragewarehousevt.com to reserve your choice of Jean-Marc Pillot white Burgundy, Harmand-Geoffroy or Forey red Burgundy, Clos Nàudin Vouvray…and more.

** At the register, a 15% discount will be taken off of the regular prices shown below. Quantities are limited, and sales are on a first come, first serve basis **

White Burgundy

  • Jean-Marc Pillot | Burgundy | Côte de Beaune – Chassagne-Montrachet | Morgeot “Les Fairendes” | Premier Cru 2004 | $86.99

The Morgeot is known for its broad-shouldered wines, often the most rich and unctuous of the crus of Chassagne. In this case, Pillot’s vines are located within the most renowned sector of Morgeot known as “Les Fairendes”. This quarter-hectare parcel planted in 1970 benefits from that most favorable of positions to produce a wine that, while large-scaled, has a finesse and presence that elevates it above its more rustic colleagues.

  • Jean-Marc Pillot | Burgundy | Côte de Beaune – Puligny-Montrachet | “Les Caillerets” | Premier Cru 2002 | $135.99

Jean-Marc Pillot’s “Caillerets”, sourced from vines planted in 1969, is described by Pillot as perhaps the most complete wine amongst the 1er Crus. With its distinguished position on the slope above Morgeot and Champs Gains, the Caillerets manages to bring both power and finesse to the palate. There is a trace of exoticism to the dried yellow fruit aromas that include peach, apricot and mango. The mineral-driven flavors are punchy enough to sing through a rich meal, and the balanced, complex and gorgeously persistent saline finish refreshes your palate for the next bite!

Vouvray

  • Domaine du Clos Nàudin | Vouvray | Chenin Blanc | Vouvray Moelleux | 2005 | $69.99

Vouvray produces the best darn Chenin Blanc you’ll ever taste, and Phillippe Foreau’s wines age remarkably well. Each wine exhibits an extraordinary panoply of flavors and aromas of fruit, floral and earth elements. The 2005 has really hit its’ stride, showing papaya, lemon curd, and honey on the nose. Round flavors of apricot and other stone fruits, plus a nice spiciness, provide tons of interest for an informed palate. This is a rich wine to complement rich food, with a finish that goes on for days!

  • Domaine du Clos Nàudin | Vouvray | Chenin Blanc | Vouvray Moelleux | 2002 | $55.99

Vouvray is particularly awesome with baked ham, and/or with pumpkin pie (sweet with sweet!). These pairings hold even more true for older vintages. The 2002 Naudin Vouvray Moelleux is a rich gold color with aromas of apricots, mango, orange zest & white florals. On the palate, a welcome sweetness is balanced by terrific acidity.

Red Burgundy

  • Domaine Forey | Burgundy | Côte de Beaune – Vosne-Romanée | Clos-Vougeot | Grand Cru | 2003 | $110.99

You’ll find deep earth, smoke, mushrooms and dark red fruit on the nose of this Grand Cru from Domaine Forey Pere et Fils. The big tannic grip and herbal notes tell you this is a serious wine, but the ultra-smooth palate and mini-explosions of cherries in your mouth may just convince you otherwise! This would be an especially excellent choice if you’re choosing a less-traditional Thanksgiving dinner, such as boeuf bourguignon or roast duck.

  • Domaine Harmand-Geoffroy | Burgundy | Mazis-Chambertin | Grand Cru | 2002 | $113.99

This small family domaine are Gevrey-Chambertin specialists, making delicious, typically dark-fruit and wild spice character wines. The deep, brooding Grand Cru bottlings from Harmand-Geoffroy offer terrific value, and the 2002 vintage is no exception. The classic Pinot Noir nose of red and black cherry give way to flavors of cranberry, crushed cherries and earth, with a touch of rustic barnyard funk that’s unusual for Burgundy but fun for Vermont wine drinkers :). This ’02 is ready to drink but still has years to go, so treat yourself and your guests this year, or give a special gift to a wine-loving host!

Oregon Pinot Noir

  • Domaine Serene | Oregon – Willamette Valley | Pinot Noir | 2010 | $66.99

We couldn’t leave American Pinot Noir out of our Thanksgiving Wine Cave extravaganza! Ken and Grace Evenstad founded Domaine Serene Vineyards and Winery in 1989 when they purchased 42 acres of just- logged land in the Dundee Hills of Oregon to plant, grow and produce ultra premium Pinot Noir. Their Burgundy-inspired Pinots are vibrant, focused and deliciously complex, offering raspberry, cherry, cinnamon, mocha and subtle sage notes with a long and expressive finish. The 2010 Pinot Noir Evenstad Reserve has a very pure, easygoing bouquet with pretty red berry fruit complemented by bay leaf and forest floor aromas. The palate is medium-bodied with sappy red berry fruit, fine salinity and a gentle build to a classic tea-leaf finish. There are just a few bottles of this vintage available and they’re ready for your table!

For the most up-to-date stock status on our Wine Cave offerings, email info@beveragewarehousevt.com or give us a call at (802) 655-2620. Cheers!

Groennfell Meadery | Havoc Mead | Tasting | FRI Nov. 10th 5-7p

Delicious days abound at the Bevie!

Pop over Friday, November 10th from 5-7p and meet the local, magical-mead-makers… Groennfell Meadery & Havoc Mead!

~ Mead Menu ~

Valkyrie’s Choice – Classic Craft Mead | Groennfell Meadery | 8.5% ABV – Gluten Free

This mead may be pretty, but don’t be fooled: like its namesake, it is neither sweet nor weak. Valkyrie’s Choice pours pale gold and bubbly. Serve at cellar temperature to fully enjoy the superb flavor and aroma of wildflower honey.

Nordic Farmhouse Mead – Scandinavian Saison-Style Mead Brewed with Cranberries | Groennfell Meadery | 5.7% ABV – Gluten Free

Nordic Farmhouse Mead is inspired by The Meadmaker’s travels throughout Scandinavia where he discovered traditional lingonberry meads fermented with wild yeast, brewed in homes throughout Denmark, Norway, and Sweden, just as it has been since the Viking Era.

Our take on this ancient beverage is an incredible fusion of old-world brewing techniques, Scandinavian farmhouse yeast, and American ingredients.

Autumn Spice – Craft Mead Brewed with Traditional Havest Spices and Chamomile Tea | Groenfell Meadery | 5.7% ABV – Gluten Free

Autumn Spice is based on Nana’s Hungarian Apple Cake, with a perfect balance of chamomile tea, nutmeg, anise, and cinnamon in a crisp, clean mead.

Whose Nana? The Meadmaker’s Nana! And she was a Hungarian-trained chef. So there.

This is the perfect pint for cool Autumn days and the first flakes of the coming Winter.

Psychopomp – Sour Cherry Mead | Havoc Mead | 6.9% ABV – Gluten Free

Psychopomp is a sour cherry mead based on a traditional style of mead known as “Viking’s Blood.” Tart cherry blends smoothly with a dry honey body for a balanced, flavorful drinking experience.

Bitter Bee / Hop Swarm – Hopped Mead | Havoc Mead | 6.9% ABV – Gluten Free

Formerly known as Bitter Bee, Hop Swarm is a perfect combination of wildflower honey and seven different hops to create a balanced, crushable mead.

Unlike most beverages, the hops in this mead are never boiled, providing the complex taste of dry-hopping with none of the bitterness.
