Each Wednesday join our Sommelier and GM Tim Rawding for a Marsh House Bar takeover!
“Every Wednesday, I will pull some of my favorite wines from our cellar at Marsh House to pour by the glass. I am excited to share with you wines that aren’t often available to taste, and to have conversations that lead to... well, opening more bottles! During the month of April we are focusing on a grape varietal that I haven’t always had the greatest relationship with. Grenache is a grape that is best known for its leading role in Chateauneuf du Pape, the historic region in the Southern Rhone. My issue with Grenache has always been when winemakers build too much ripeness, which yields too much alcohol and loses the freshness from high acidity. But we are grateful for a handful of wineries, among many others, that honor the bright fruit and velvety structure of Grenache. Let us introduce you to our favorite renditions of Grenache this month, that may or may not be what you expected.”
This week featuring: Domaine Gramenon Poignée de Raisins, Côtes du Rhône 2017
Sitting in the northeast tip of the Southern rhone, Domaine Gramenon has created a cult following from their powerful expressions of Syrah and Grenache. Poignée de Raisins is the most savory and expressive version of Grenache I have ever experienced and I can’t wait to share it with you. At $15 a glass you will be blown away by what Gramenon is able to accomplish with the Grenache grape.
