Borgogno Langhe Nebbiolo 2019 30 $

Raised for 10 months in oak casks, this 'baby Barolo' is surprisingly powerful. For those who want to drink well in Piedmont without spending hundreds of dollars, this is probably the best option on the market. Still a little young, this wine explodes with red fruits and dried flowers to finish with present tannins, but quite fine. Nebbiolo + mushroom = guaranteed pleasure. (Red)


Domaine du Coulet Brise Cailloux 2018 $ 66

Mathieu Barret, friendly nicknamed '' the little bear '' in the Rhône, creates high-flying biodynamic wines! This cuvée captures the essence of Cornas well, aromas of dark fruits such as blueberries, blackberries blend wonderfully with the typical pepper of Syrah. Luckily, there are a lot of them in the SAQ network at the moment, I would take the opportunity to buy 2-3 to put them in the cellar. To accompany the sauce and the stuffing of the pithiviers, I have a hard time imagining a better pairing! It is always a big crush at Menu Extra. (Red)


Amiot Servelle Chambolle-Musigny Village 2018 122$

Mythical appellation of the night coast, Chambolle-Musigny is recognized for its fine and delicate wines. Domaine Amiot Servelle has been working there for over 100 years and has acquired legendary expertise. For some time now, a more natural approach has been felt; organic certification, manual harvest, no filtration. A wine that will ideally accompany a special occasion. (Red)
