We asked some of the city's leading wine purveyors to share their picks for the season. Bottoms Up!
Klaudia Mally and Carri Wroblewski, BRIX Wine Shop
2002 Domaine Fourrier Chambolle-Musigny ler Cru Les Gruenchers ($80) "This wine has a gorgeous and elegant nose filled with cherries, yet almost floral. The palate has good acidity and is full-bodied to match holiday fare. This one makes a great gift for cellaring."
2002 Henri Bourgeois Jadis Sancerre ($45) "This is one of our favorite producers. The fruit comes from 50-year-old-plus vines and sees some barrel aging. Like liquid velvet for your tongue, it is rich yet has uncanny acidity."
1995 Pol Roger Cuvee Sir Winston Churchill ($200) "This was created as a tribute to the great man, who was a close friend of the Pol Roger family and longtime consumer of the Champagne. We love the elegance and raciness of this wine, which highlights citrus, hazelnut, and a toasty finish."
A BIT OF EVERYTHING
The Holiday BRIX Six ($100) "The most sophisticated six-pack you'll ever drink. You can start with bubbly, move into red and white wines to match your holiday fare, and finish with a dessert wine for your sweet tooth. It makes a great gift for your neighbor, boss, or yourself."
