Weekly wine picks 12/20/05

Comte de Audoin Ambassadeur's Cuvee NV $36.99

An outstanding wine, offering a beautifully crafted, intricately flavored medium-bodied Champagne. Lovely aromas of stonefruit, wet slate and fresh baked bread are balanced with flavors of pear, yeast and subtle floral qualities. Remarkably fine grained bubbles lead the vibrant finish which is lively with acid and has an intriguing elegance in the flavorful aftertaste.

Drink with fresh oysters on the half shell

St. Amant 2003 Amador Tempranillo $15.99

A very dark red purple, extracted tempranillo. The spicy cherry nose shows hints of tobacco. Despite its dark character the wine is medium bodied with flavors of raspberry, strawberry, dust, coffee and pepper. A dry fine knit tannin finish is blanketed with spice and fruit lingering nicely.

Drink with roasted beef
