Nothing says "You're Special" like Le Cellier du Chateau! This high quality assortment of flavors is exactly what you'll want to share with your favorite people. From romantic get-aways or picnics to just a simple reunion with old friends, you will make a lasting impression when you share this beautiful basket! 

Le Cellier du Chateau includes an exquisite 750 ml. bottle of 2022 Chateau Montelena Riesling, 4 lbs. of the seasons best tasting Butterscotch Pears, a bottle stopper, a cloth bag filled with a 10 oz. medley of nuts and nut cracker, and a box of crackers pairing perfectly with 12 oz. wedge of Beehive Barely Buzzed Cheese -- an award-winning cheddar from Utah that is rubbed with espresso and lavender. 

NOSE: The 2022 Riesling opens with ginger, a lot of ginger. It doesn’t happen every year, but when it does, it’s dazzling. Layered in are traditional aromas of apricot, lemon blossom, and dried peach. While there’s a hint of lime leaf, it tends to be masked at this stage by more opulent characteristics, revealing itself over time.

PALATE: Asian pear and cinnamon are immediately evident, lending depth and richness. This wine is surprisingly integrated given its youth, although there’s certainly more complexity lurking beneath the surface. Meyer lemon, honey candy, and dried pineapple lend a sense of hedonistic enjoyability, while the latent acid balances the lavishness with subtlety rather than austerity.

FINISH: At this point in time, the finish can only be described as supple, but not extravagant. Given the extravagance and concentration of the aromas and flavors, the delicacy of the finish draws you in for the next sip. Moreover, given the ripeness of the vintage, the balance of this wine is superb. It’s mouthcoating without being cloying, and rich without being fatiguing. It’s a sublime wine with incredible potential.
