Celebrate the New Year with Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne

Welcome the new year with a truly memorable sparkling wine—Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label Champagne.

This sparkling wine will bring back the smiles and tell those you celebrate with that you look forward to making new memories with them.

The Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label, much like the dawn of a new year, is full of promise. Bright and lightly toasty, this elegant Champagne layers flavors of cassis, crushed hazelnut, and lemon meringue pie on its creamy bead. Its predominance of Pinot Noir provides the structure that is so typically Clicquot, while a touch of Pinot Meunier rounds out the blend. Its Chardonnay component adds the class to the glass and finesse essential in a perfectly balanced wine.

However you choose to put a capper on this year and embrace the next, treat yourself to Veuve Clicquot.

Veuve Clicquot Brut, as well as a host of other sparkling wines of substance, can be found at large local liquor stores like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, which specializes in offering you superior selection for all celebrations and budgets.

Ring in the Holiday Season with Beaujolais Nouveau!

Beaujolais Nouveau Day is marked in France on the third Thursday in November (Nov. 21) with fireworks, music, and festivals. Under French law, the wine is released at 12:01 a.m., just weeks after the wine’s grapes have been harvested. Parties are held throughout the country and further afield to celebrate this first wine of the season.

Beaujolais Nouveau is meant to be drunk young. Most vintages should be consumed by the following May after its release. However, in excellent vintages (such as the 2000) the wine can live much longer and can be enjoyed until the next harvest rolls around.

The region of Beaujolais is known for its fabulous food. The famed Paul Bocuse restaurant is just minutes from the heart of Beaujolais, as is Georges Blanc’s. These great restaurants have plenty of Beaujolais Nouveau on their wine lists. The wine goes well with either high cuisine or Friday night’s pizza.

An annual favorite, these French first harvest varietals are perfect for holiday parties or Thanksgiving feasts:

Georges Duboeuf Beaujolais Nouveau: Vibrant red fruits flavors of strawberries and currants show on the palate with an intense perfume that make this wine a perfect accompaniment for cheese, charcuterie, and traditional holiday fare. Serve slightly chilled.

La Perliere Beaujolais Villages: On the nose, one gets notes of raspberry and cherry. On the palate, flavors of smoke, mineral, and strawberry are present with soft tannins. This is a medium-bodied wine with a short, peppery finish.

Grab a bottle and see what all the hubbub is about for yourself. Locally, you can find these limited edition, celebrated wines at larger, independently owned wine shops, like Wyatt’s Wet Goods, that offer you a superior selection from around the globe and an experienced staff that will help you find the perfect bottle for every occasion.

Race to Wyatt’s for Woodford Reserve

While some may be preparing their blenders for margaritas this weekend, the most renowned bourbon event of the year takes place this Saturday—the Kentucky Derby.

The Derby is the most famous horse race of the year, steeped in tradition, including a drinking one.

The Mint Julep, the quintessential Southern cocktail, is synonymous with the Kentucky Derby. Woodford, especially Woodford Reserve Bourbon, is the primary sponsor of the Kentucky Derby. Each year, Woodford sponsors the great race, and raises a substantial sum in charity and sponsorship for the event.

For a great whiskey weekend, place your bets on one of these entries from the Woodford collection:

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Bourbon: Woodford’s flagship bourbon is a clean, amber bourbon, with notes of dried fruit, mint, and oranges in its nose and a touch of cocoa and faint vanilla. It is rich and chewy, but smooth and rounded with flavors of cinnamon, toffee, and cocoa. It has a silky, smooth finish that is creamy with a lingering, warm tail. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Double Oaked Bourbon: Sweet and spicy on the nose, Woodford Reserve Double Oaked offers inviting aromas of vanilla, honey, chocolate and cinnamon with a hint of dried fruit. The palate offers rich flavors of caramel, baked apple, brown sugar and marzipan, which merge with notes of oak, vanilla and honeyed apple on the long finish. Although the oak is certainly pronounced, it accentuates the complex balance of flavors, rather than overwhelming them. 45.2% ABV.

Woodford Reserve Kentucky Straight Rye Whiskey: Specially selected whiskies are infused with the rich flavor of Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla. The result is a uniquely sophisticated whisky, bursting with the bold flavor of vanilla and the distinctive smoothness of Crown Royal. 45.2% ABV.

This year, Woodford Reserve is offering their classic Bourbon in a standard size 750ml gift pack that includes its own signature copper Mint Julep cup! These collectibles will put you in the spirit for the 145th running of the Kentucky Derby. You can find them, while supplies last, at Wyatt’s, where we offer you only the best for your drinking experiences.
