Jean Charles Boisset Rose Burgundy

A collection of rare numbered edition wines, composed by Jean Charles Boisset, stemming from centuries of Burgundian family tradition combined with the graceful exploration of sophisticated terroir where elegance, delicacy refinement and finesse can be discovered.  A way of reinventing time and celebrating style that goes beyond fashion.

Cartlidge & Browne Chardonnay

Tropical fruits, ripe citrus and gentle oak spice are keynotes of the supple elegant Chardonnay.  It pairs beautifully with poultry, seafood and light cheeses.

Charles and Charles Rose”

The 2012 Rosé exhibits a beautiful pink color, tinged with a subtle salmon hue and coppered fuchsia edges. The aromas pop with wild strawberry, rose, cherry, subtle hibiscus and a touch of citrus, with underlying dried herb, crushed gravel and mineral tones. These bright fruit and savory flavors continue through the palate with great acidity that carries into the finish. Our goal is create a balance between fruit, savory and acid notes so that not one element is overly dominant. Syrah comprises the majority of the blend at 81%. The complimentary varietals are Mourvedre (16%), Cinsault (2%) and Grenache (1%).

L’Argentier Vieilles Vignes de Cinsault

Produced from a Languedoc indigenous grape variety this 100% Cinsault wine comes from old vines.  With a light ruby color, soft tannins and red fruit flavor, this wine will pair perfectly with white meats, Mediterranean dishes and tuna or salmon.

Wine Guerrilla Rebel Cru

This Cru gets big and bold with zinfandel, cabernet sauvignon, syrah and petit sirah.  It’s like the Fab Four of wine – zin the “cute one”, cab the “clever one”, syrah the ‘quiet one” and petit syrah the “funny one’.  Together, they make beautiful music.
