Raymond Generations Cabernet 2014

Napa Valley, California

97 Points Wine Advocate

The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Generations tends to be a mix of four vineyards, two in St. Helena, one in Oakville and one in east Napa. It is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was bottled unfined and unfiltered, after spending 19 months in 60% new French oak. Production is a modest 1,600+ cases. A brilliant wine from Boisset, it exhibits notes of blackberry and cassis, truffle, chocolate and spice bow. Layered and multidimensional with terrific opulence and purity, this is a “wow” wine, and while drinkable now, capable of evolving for 20 or more years.

Sale $59.99/bottle (84 bottles)

Reg. $124.99/bottle


Piazza Grande Lambrusco Rosato Brut

Emilia-Romagna, Italy

Rose petal, wild strawberry and cherry aromas carry over to the bright palate along with a hint of white pepper. It's elegant and easy drinking, with a light mousse and fresh acidity.

Sale $11.99/bottle

Reg. $13.99/bottle

L.A. Cetto Sparkling Brut

Baja, Mexico

This sparkling wine is produced using the "Traditional Method". The grapes are harvested a little earlier than normal to help ensure freshness. Floral bouquet, fruity with hints of hibiscus.The bubbles are fine and persistent with a pleasant dryness.

Sale $14.99/bottle

Reg. $16.99/bottle


Louis de Grenelle Brut Rose

Loire Valley, France

This is not sparkling wine made by “leftover” juice as is unfortunately the case in many Loire sparkling houses. The fruit for these bottlings is harvested by hand and yields are quite low. 100% Cabernet Franc from vineyards just outside of Saumur. Fermented and aged in tank, this is produced using the Méthode Champenoise. Very low dosage to protect the aromas and flavor of the varietal. Bright, crisp, and delicious sparkling rosé.

Sale $19.99/bottle

Reg. $21.99/bottle

Roederer Estate Brut NV

Mendocino, California

93 Points Wine Spectator

Seamless and silky, showing an almost effortless sense of complexity, with notes of lemon and pear paired with toasty brioche, fresh ginger and hazelnut details. #27 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2018

Sale $22.99/bottle

Reg. $27.99/bottle

Argyle Brut 2015

Willamette Valley, Oregon

The 2015 sparkling wine vintage in the Willamette Valley was impeccable, showcasing the enticing depth and focused precision the region has to offer. The Pinot Noir dominated blend provides impressive red-fruited dimension to the white peach, wild honey and toasted brioche. The middle palate is invigorated with dynamic acid backbone and edgy minerality, bringing balance and concentration to the long finish.

Sale $21.99/bottle

Reg. $29.99/bottle

JCB #21 Brut Cremant de Bourgogne NV

Burgundy, France

90 Points Wine Enthusiast

This Cremant is crisply apple and lemon flavored, a bone-dry, textured wine that is destined for food. It finishes with elegant acidity. Also the winner of an in house blind tasting of best sparkling wine under $25.

Sale $19.99/bottle

Reg. $23.99/bottle

Peillot Montagnieu Brut

Bugey, France

This is a really lovely alternative to Champagne and a great value. Montagnieu is a village south of Cerdon, in the Jura, with premières côtes overlooking the Rhône valley. This wine is a blend of Chardonnay, Altesse and Mondeuse and has complex herbal aromas, nice lemony ripeness on the palate and a long, dry finish.



Laurent-Perrier La Cuvee Brut

Champagne, France

91 Points James Suckling

An updated and renovated NV offering from LP, this has bright white stone fruit aromas and flavors with a silky smooth palate and gently nutty build into the finish. Chardonnay leads the wine, while pinot noir and meunier deliver structure and reserve wines add depth and interest.

Sale $39.99/bottle

Reg. $49.99/bottle

Mousse L'or D'Eugene NV

Champagne, France

"80% Meunier and 20% PN. The aroma is refined, friendly but not ingratiating; on the palate it’s a superb Blanc de Noirs, diligent, structured, fruity but not gushing, disciplined but not severe. I think and have always thought it’s the ideal for Meunier NV; thoroughly delicious but not an avalanche of chocolate and pumpernickel." -Terry Theise

Sale $44.99/bottle


Pierre Gimonnet Blanc de Blancs NV

Champagne, France

The wine is soft and rounded although unmistakably from Chardonnay in the chalky Côte des Blancs. Crisp apples have a light creaminess as well as lively acidity. Coming from Premier Cru vineyards, it shows a strongly mineral character that is filled out by the ripe fruitiness.

Sale $45.99/bottle


Maximin Grunhaus Sekt Brut 2014

Mosel, Germany

93 Points Wine Enthusiast

Enticing whiffs of brioche, biscuit, lemon and lime introduce this lovely brut-style sparkling. It's bracingly fresh yet bursting with juicy tangerine and yellow peach flavors. Filigreed in structure and with pin-point, persistent petillance, it's a convincing argument for Champagne lovers to drink more sekt, especially considering its price.



Louis Roederer Cristal Brut 2008

Champagne, France

100 Points Wine Enthusiast

This latest incarnation of the famous brand is a superb wine. It is on par with, maybe even better than, the already legendary 2002. Its balance is impeccable: Apple and citrus flavors working with the tight minerality to give a textured yet fruity wine. Produced from Roederer's own vineyards which are mainly biodynamic, the wine has its own intense purity and crispness. It has amazing potential and is likely to age for many years.

$299.99/bottle (1 bottle)

Bereche Reflet D'Antan NV (2012)

Champagne, France

93 Points Vinous

The flagship NV (2012) Reflet d'Antan is quite rich and intense, yet it also maintains striking translucence. Dried flowers, herbs and spices add aromatic nuance throughout, but, as is often the case, Reflet d'Antan is a wine of texture and feel above all else. Dosage is 6 grams per liter. Disgorged December 2016.

$139.99/bottle (6 bottles)

Happy New Year From 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits!

Well, almost….

If YOU plan to have a Happy New Year, then make sure that you beat a path to 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits in downtown Minneapolis to check out all the special offerings of CHAMPAGNE, as well as craft BEER, WINE and SPIRITS!!! The shelves and displays are loaded with beverages just waiting to make your New Year’s celebration the most memorable ever.

Ok…so 2018 is almost in the rear view mirror. First of all, thank you for making it a great year for us! We celebrate 4 years at 1010 Washington Wine & Spirits next Saturday, on January 5th. Looking back, we are still amazed at the changes we have made in the store. I am not sure that there is a spot in the store that looks the same as it did four years ago. What is even more amazing …and truly gratifying…is the number of really good friends we have made. We believe that we have changed the entire mission of the store. What is truly gratifying is that YOU seem to have accepted and embraced what we are trying to do.

With this in mind, you should know that our 4th annual ANNIVERSARY SALE will begin on Wednesday, January 9th and run through Sunday, January 27th. Don, Rob, and Darren have already started working on getting you terrific deals to replenish you bar and wine cellar after the carnage wrought by Holiday entertaining.

On January 16th, we will be welcoming Monica Nogues, Founder and Owner of Think Global Wine Selections, to lead us in a terrific Spanish wine tasting. What differentiates the selections she has made is that all of the wines exhibit a real sense of place as well as being, as we said, fully aged so you can consume them at their optimum drinkability. I think we are in for a very exciting evening!

Call the store at (612) 339-4040 or send us an email at info@1010wws.com. As per usual, the tasting will be at the Aloft Hotel in downtown Minneapolis, MN at 6:30 PM. The cost of a ticket is $25.00, which can be credited against purchases from the tasting. We would really like to see you join us.

Thank you for four great years together. Thank you for your advice and counsel. Have a Happy and SAFE New Year! We look forward to 2019, and beyond, with YOU!
