          WINE From Chris & Tony :
 
      WHITE :
 
 
 
   1) 2014 Pinot Gris BOE Brooklyn Oenology, North Fork of Long Island, $22.99 a bottle, from Allie the winemaker, this is so rich, so full, so amazingly layered and lovely with fruit overtones and great mouthfeel, a treat to hold seconds longer in your mouth before you swallow, and do not swallow all the wine, do it in steps, let the wine remaining in your mouth after you swallow a bit EXPLODE on your tongue and palate!  With 12.7% alcohol, this is a great wine to enjoy slightly-chilled 30 minutes indoors or outdoors, with whatever finger foods you have around, and then with your full meal later. Cheers, thanks Allie.

     2) " L'Oratoire - Cuvee Divine " Vin De Provence, France from the Chateau PIGOUDET, depuis 1820, $21.99, so sublimely delicate and rich in taste, the color alone will lull and please you, the distinct taste with highs and lows and accents, tweeks, and full dotting of all ' i's ' ayes / eyes is pretty amazing.
