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 May we are focusing on the many expressions of Pinot Noir that don’t hail from Burgundy or California. All throughout the winemaking world, producers have been inspired by the great Pinot Noirs of Burgundy and in their own time, have done their best to capture lightning in a bottle. All month you will be surprised at the versatility of Pinot Noir, shocked that you aren’t drinking Burgundy and stunned that this grape can achieve such diversity. We look forward to your feedback on where the “other” great Pinot Noirs express best.”
This week featuring: Lucien Crochet Cuvée Prestige, Sancerre 2009
When people speak of Sancerre, Pinot Noir is rarely a part of the conversation. But at just a mere 30 hectares of total land planted to Pinot Noir, Sancerre Rouge makes a bold statement when you can find it. Pinot from Sancerre is grown on the same limestone soils of southern Champagne and Chablis. These soils and a warm vintage like 2009 have created a Burgundy doppelganger. At $25 a glass, you’d swear you were sipping on a velvety rendition from Chambolle-Musigny amidst the slopes of Burgundy.
