May means Chardonnay
One Wine, Many Faces
With the warm weather looking like it’s here to stay, we’re very excited for the theme of this month’s Marrow Magnum Monday. Our May selections showcase the many different faces of a warm weather favorite wine, Chardonnay. We’ll be featuring four different Chardonnays from regions all over the world, including France’s Jura and Burgundy regions alongside Napa Valley.
What’s Marrow Magnum Monday? Each Monday, our beverage director Cappie Peete picks a different magnum of wine to offer by the glass. The magnum picks are organized by a monthly theme, giving you a chance to do a deep dive into a region or style by trying wines in large format.
Monday is also the only day of the week that we offer our embered bone marrow--not to be missed!
On May 6th, we’ll be featuring Domaine Cheveau Vieilles Vignes from Pouilly-Fuisse, France. This small production wine from southern Burgundy comes from a domaine that has been family-owned and operated for three generations. This wine has powerful flavors like expressive fruit and brightness, with an accent of French oak.
On May 13th, we will be closed for staff appreciation celebrations.
On May 20th, our selection will be Domaine Pelican Arbois from Jura, France. Domaine Pelican’s owner, Guillaume D’Angerville owns Domaine D’Angerville in Burgundy, and has started producing wine in a lesser known region, Jura. This wine stands out with its fresh and bright flavors, and takes on more Burgundy wine qualities than the typical oxidative style of a Jura wine.
On May 27th, our final selection this month is Hyde Vineyard Massican from Napa Valley, California. We’re imploring you to free your mind from past experiences of California Chardonnay and try this selection by Dan Petroski. He turns some of the best fruit in Napa into a wine rich and full, but with vibrant acidity that brings forth the tropical fruit and mineral tones.
Chardonnay, four different ways. You won’t want to miss the experience to try each of their individualistic flavor profiles. Make your Monday reservation(s) here.
