Bulletin Detail
Date August 11, 2021 
Title Currently Available at! 

Pickings remain rather slim at the moment for Arthur’s Cellar selections on, but much more is in the pipeline. It is always difficult to predict when the LCBO will get around to listing wines that have already arrived - rest assured I’ll let know know as soon as they are available to order.

Per usual, I'd be pleased to order for you. Just let me know what you would like and to which LCBO store you would like it sent.

2018 Côtes du Rhône "Les Notes de Louis" - 15.8% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 790873     $17.80 the bottle

This glorious Côte du Rhône is made from almost 100% Grenache - and the Giulianis are very, very talented Grenache growers. This robust beauty is a brilliant ruby colour and exhibits a pronounced, lively nose of raspberries, plums and cherries. In the mouth these persist, accompanied by black currents and hints of pepper and licorice. It is big and wonderfully round and supple with silky tannins and surprising length. This stunner will go marvellously with savoury tarts and grilled meats, in other words, perfect for the BBQ. While drinking brilliantly well now (I'd decant a couple of hours before enjoying), it will keep nicely for at least three or four years. This is terrific stuff and a fine price.

54 bottles currently available, a few more cases are sitting at the LCBO and hopefully will be made available soon.

2019 Vacqueyras Rouge – 15.0% Alc./Vol.     LCBO Product No. 112788     $30.90 the bottle

Domaine Palon Vacqueyras rouge 2018

This gorgeous, medium-bodied wine is made from 75% Grenache, 16% Mourvèdre and 9% Syrah, hand-picked from vines that average more than forty-five years of age. The Mourvèdre and Syrah were aged in large oak casks for twelve months. It is a deep, pure garnet with complex aromas of plums, prunes, raspberries, black cherries, currants, new leather, Provençal spices with a note of black pepper and cloves. In the mouth it is fresh and lively with surprising complexity and excellent balance. And, oh those delicate, silky Palon tannins. This wine has lots of character, depth and substance and will go beautifully with roasted fowl and charcuterie. This lovely concoction is a real pleasure to drink right now and will continue be so for another eight to ten years.

2 lonely bottles remain.
