Hubert Lamy Bourgogne “Les Chataigners” 2016
This delightful chardonnay is grown amongst the cool white limestone soils of Les Chataigners in Burgundy, France and aged in French oak barrels.
The end result is a juicy white Burgundy with refreshing minerality. Notes of citrus are complimented with an acidic component and, finally, a dry finish.
Lamy is a family that knows good Burgundy wine! There are records of the Lamy family growing vines since 1640!

Wine to Fall in Love With
Ok, we know that was cheesy… but even though the leaves might not change colour in Paradise, we still have some great wines to suggest for Autumn.
These wines can be enjoyed any time of year but we think they’ll pair exceptionally well with our next, real cold front!
Cune Crianza Rioja
85% Tempranillo, 15% Grenache
One sip of this Rioja and you’ll warm right up! Earthy, with hints of spices, this red is complex but still offers a fresh finish.
Famille Perrin Cotes du Rhone Vinsobres “Les Cornuds”
60% Grenache, 40% Syrah
The Syrah that makes up this wine brings roundness with notes of spices and fleshy red fruit. This red has a nice balance and elegant tannins that compliment the cooler weather.
Joseph Mellot Sancerre “La Chatellenie”
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Sancerres are an ideal autumn white wine. This option from Joseph Mellot is delicate but also contains a nice fullness, along with flinty notes that the region is known for.
Rocche dei Manzoni Barbera D’Alba “La Cresta”
100% Barbera D’Alba
Barberas are known for being rich while also light-bodied. This is thanks to their acidity. “La Cresta” has soft tannins and dark fruit notes that are perfect for fall.
