Continuing onward into the second month of 2020, we’ve got an incredible month of magnums for you to try at Marrow Magnum Mondays at Death & Taxes.
This month, in honor of her birthday, our beverage director, Cappie Peete has a treat in store for us. All of the selections are personal favorites of hers, meaning you’ll get the chance to try the favorite selections of one of Raleigh’s most incredible sommeliers.
On February 3rd, we started our month of magnums with Roland Lavantureux Chablis Vieilles Vignes. This selection has ripe, exotic fruit aromas and ample lingering richness that will pair perfectly with our marrow to start while still being bold enough to match our fish, shrimp, and even pork entrees.
On February 10th, we’ll feature Hirsch San Andreas Fault Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast. Hirsch Vineyards is one of Cappie’s favorite producers of Pinor Noir. The San Andreas Fault pinot noir, so named because the Hirsch vineyard lies just half a mile from the faultline, is their flagship wine and has fruit from 28 distinct farming blocks within their multifaceted vineyard. This vintage is characterized by charming red fruit, supple tannins, and a juicy fruit character.
On February 17th, we are featuring Agnes & Rene Mosse Moussamoussettes Pet Nat Rosé. This vibrant and flavorful pet nat is from the Loire Valley in France, one of Cappie’s all-time favorite wine regions. Agnes & René Mosse make this rejuvenating wine that is bursting with red berry fruit flavor, yet is still totally dry. It is lip-smacking, delicious and too fun to miss.
On February 24th, we’ll finish off our magnum month with Domaine Chapel Charbonnieres Fleurie France. Notes of raspberry, red currants, and fresh herbs dominate this juicy fruit-forward wine. This young domaine, founded by husband and wife team - David Chapel and Michele Chapel-Smith, is making waves across Beaujolais. The old vine Gamay plantings in the Charbonnieres vineyard of Fleurie combined with their meticulous attention to detail in the cellar yields this beautiful wine.
