For 12 weeks, we feature a wine, and include tasting notes and suggestions for pairings. At the end of the 12 weeks, we’ll review our Mixed Case, and recap the choices. Each mixed case will be chosen by a local wine shop owner, who will also become our wine expert-in-residence during his or her tenure. (So should we need recommendations for a holiday, for example. we’ll ask.) We’ll get a new expert for each case. Right now, we’re working on our Mixed Case from Wine Geeks in Armonk..
LoHud Wine of the Week
Olivier Morin ‘Constance’ 2009: Crisp pear, mandarin orange and lemon notes balanced with a stony minerality. Region: Chitry, Burgundy, France. Goes with: Roast chicken, halibut, oysters and turkey! Price: $17.99. Why we chose it: The town of Chitry is a mere two miles outside of Chablis and this wine has all the crisp lemon and minerality of classic Chablis at a much more reasonable price.
