France

paris-street-market3.jpg

The vine may have a longer history in the eastern Mediterranean, but no country in the modern world is more closely associated with wine than France. Champagne, Bordeaux, Burgundy; these French regions have become synonymous with the styles of wine to which they are home. And those three are only the most famous in a country where nearly every region produces its own highly individual wine varietals or styles. At Marquis we are apologetically Francophilic, and we are happy to offer you many French wines not available anywhere else in B.C.

Alain Gueneau 2018 Sancerre "La Guiberte" 750ml

$49.47

Pale yellow in colour with green and golden highlights. The first smell is discreet with herbaceous hints (nettle, tomato leaves, and menthol). Then the nose reveals notes of elder blossom, citronella, and thyme. Frank in attack, the palate refreshes...

Beaucastel 2017 Coudoulet Rouge Cotes du Rhone 750ml

$40.78

Juicy and direct, with a core of blackberry and plum fruit, laced with a singed alder thread and backed by a dusting of garrigue on the finish, which reveals a nice tug of dark earth. Should open up with some cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028. 5,000...

Bernard Defaix 2018 Petit Chablis 750ml

$30.35

The 2018 Petit Chablis is laced with attractive floral, citrus and orchard fruit notes. There is good energy, especially for the year, but the finish is just a touch dry. For that reason, I would prefer to drink it over the next 2-3 years. Score: 88...

Billaud-Simon 2018 Chablis 750ml

$47.74

The 2018 Chablis is bright, finely sculpted and nuanced, with lovely aromatic complexity and class. Lemon peel, mint and white flowers all grace this very pretty, perfumed entry-level Chablis. The richness and radiance of 2018 are evident, and yet there...

Boutinot 2018 CDR "Les Cerisiers Rose" 750ml

$25.13

Intent on making the very best Côtes du Rhône Rosé we can, our search for varieties naturally suited to rosé led us to Grenache Noir for body, Cinsault for freshness and a touch of spice from a drop of Syrah. 65% Grenache...

Boutinot Le Fou 2018 Pinot Noir 750ml

$18.17

Winemaker's Notes: Obviously fuller than Pinot Noir from Burgundy, it has a warm rich nose with some delicate leafy aromas. The palate is nicely balanced with 'fraises sauvages', violets and caramel finishing with an exciting savoury bitterness provided...

Brocard 2017 Chablis "L'Homme Mort" 1er Cru 750ml

$82.52

The 2017 Chablis Homme Mort 1er Cru, taken from Rousseau barrels, has a slightly richer, tropical tinged bouquet than the other Brocard Premier Cru, still well defined with scents of blood orange and citrus peel. The palate is well balanced with a crisp...

Camille Giroud 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru 750ml

$543.39

The 2017 Chambertin Grand Cru is a powerful, wonderfully complete wine that shows the breadth and pedigree that are such signatures of this site. Sweet red cherry, pomegranate, blood orange, spice and dried flowers build in an aromatically intense, vivid...

Camille Giroud 2017 Clos de Vougeot Grand Cru 750ml

$304.26

The 2017 Clos Vougeot Grand Cru (from Petit Montpertuis and Hautes Baudes) offers terrific density and power, with more than enough depth to handle the 100% whole clusters. Ample and rich on the palate, with terrific persistence, the 2017 has a lot to...
