LABOR DAY TREATS here @ cleveland park wines

WE HAVE SO MANY things to celebrate with this weekend as we say :  " goodbye "
to summer and " hello " to the fall as school starts back up for many
households. It's a bittersweet moment as we are all forced to SQUEEZE the very
last drops of spirits, fun, summer, sunshine and extra warmth and humidity, the
last of the mosquitoes, too ... and turn to a more serious demeanor with more
chores, obligations, rituals and jobs that we kept at bay for short periods of
time as we relaxed and perhaps even turned off most of our electronic gizmos,
too?! Is that even possible in today's day and age? Not as easy as it once was.

A LADY JUST CAME asking for some Gentiane that she told me her friends was
really having trouble locating here in Washington D.C. She prefaced that with
the comment that she was turning to us for help as we had always solved many of
her searches and requests with the products she was after.

WHEN I HEARD THIS I thought to myself that I hope we have what she is looking
for this time? She pronounced the name of what she was looking for and I told
her that I had never heard of it. It was a French digestif and I was wondering
what it was and explaining that I did not know it but we decided to look at what
we had on our shelves. As we were scanning them she said : " what's that?! ".

SHE WAS POINTING TO a bottle of our BONAL Gentiane-Quina des Montagnes de la
Grande Chartreuse ST. LAURENT-DU-PONT ( Isere ),  " an ouvre appetit depuis 1865
". It's a QUINQUINA Vin Aperitif ( $19.99 a 750ml bottle, 16% alcohol by volume,
once open keep chilled, product of France ? : " It is made by an infusion of
cinchona ( Quinine ), gentian, and renowned herbs of the Grande Chartreuse
mountains in a Mistelle base. As a Quinquina ( also known as " Kina ", an
aperitif wine with chinchona. It is traditionally enjoyed neat, on ice with a
twist, and in many classic mixed drinks ." It's called a Toni Aperitif de
France. I like that. We only have three bottles left. It was out of stock at our
distributor for awhile so come get some now if you are interested and celebrate
Labor Day weekend with some BONAL! Cheers.


From our " A Taste Of Cleveland Park " from our old and dear friend Pam The
Butcher Ginsberg :


1 lb. filet of lemon sole    one-third c. white wine

2 roma tomatoes, chopped coarsely   Juice of one lemon

2 shallots, chopped finely   black pepper to taste

" Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Place sole on cooking sheet that has been covered
with foil for easy cleanup. All fish expands with heat. Cook sole for 4 to 5
minutes. While sole cooks, saute tomatoes and shallots in white wine, lemon and
pepper. Remove sole from the oven. With slotted spoon remove tomatoes and
shallots from pan, placing them on top of sole. Return sole to oven 8 to 9
minutes. Reduce heat on sauce by half. When sole is done, place sauce on bottom
of plate with sole on top. "

MICHEL. WHAT DO YOU THINK? Did you all ever make this or a version of this at
Liliana's? Would you have a Ligurian or a French wine with it? We are out of the
Ligurian white that we normally sell here and so I will mention some French
wines that I think might work brilliantly with this LEMON SOLE FOR YOUR SOUL
recipe of Pam's :
1) 2010 SAINT-BRIS " Clotilde Davenne " dry white Sauvignon Blanc ( On
Special for $16.99, 12.5% alcohol by volume, vin de Bourgogne/Burgundy. Made not
far from the Chablis Burgundy region this unique Sauvignon Blanc from Burgundy
has loads of extra body, flavor and taste to cut through and help frame better
the distinct yet refined and aromatic, delicate flavors of sole and herbs and
tomatoes to cradle our souls.
2) 2011 " La Renaudie " Sec/ Dry 100% Sauvignon Blanc white from the town
of Bergerac ( $14.99 a bottle, 13.5% alcohol by volume, a two-hour drive from
the town of Bordeaux driving into the interior and not far from the caves of
prehistoric drawings Caves le Lascaux.
THIS IS A BRIGHTER, rounder, fleshier-tasting Sauvignon Blanc that is
easy-drinking before and with the meal of the lemon sole.
3) 2011 Le Nectar des Fees in Saint-Pourcain from the Gardien
Freres/Brothers. Celebrating a famous fairy tale this dry indigenous grape
Tressalier only grows in these vineyards of Saint Pourcain that are reputed to
be the oldest in France. It's quite dry with great mineral and soaring blasts of
acids, too,
IT'S DEFINITELY A FOOD WINE, and will cut through all the flavors to be found in
Pam's dish. It's also a great value and something unique with a great story.
Google it and share it while you enjoy Pam's lemon sole this Labor Day.
4) 2010 Palais Prive dry white from the Rhone Luberon region of France,
this ( $20.99. 12.5% alcohol by volume, Caves de Bonnieux, 84480, France,
www.doyleprovence.com ) is also quite dry with bright bursts of minerals and
tangy-accenting ripples of acidity , medium-bodied and after a glass as an
aperitif you will welcome with open arms and palate some of Pam's lemon sole.
5) 2006 Bourgogne Aligote Vieilles Vignes / Old Vines of DOMAINE Henri
NAUDIN-FERRAND in Burgundy ( On Special for $17.99, 12.5% alcohol by volume,
www.naudin-ferrand.com ) is mature and complex and richly-layered and a very
serious dry white food wine where mineral and even some nut and honey flavors
are really turned up high so that they insinuate themselves, subtly infiltrate ,
permeate and saturate one's palate.
THE LEMON SOLE will float effortlessly on everyone's plate. Definitely a food
wine : it will hold it's own against many flavorful/well-seasoned dishes. Not so
much a sipping wine : too much flavor for that!
6) 2010 Ondenc / Onsec Sec - indigenous dry French white grape variety -
Par Robert & Bernard Plageoles ( $27.99, 14.5% alcohol by volume,
jennyandfrancois.com, info@jennyandfrancois.com ( 646 ) 322-4254 ) is a Jenny &
Francois Selections' complex, multi-layered, golden-colored white that is rich
and full and so thick on the palate with great feel and legs and flesh.
THIS IS AN  amazingly-refreshing, powerful mouth-full of wine that must be
tasted to be believed. It's an experience all in itself and I include it as it
will hold it's own to many a vegetable or side dish and will be a great way to
bring closure to an already thoroughly delicious meal and moment.

I MIGHT RECOMMEND that you start with one of the other wines and then finish
with this Ondenc? Why not, there are always various tastes in the foods served
and it is not always easy to have one wine be the perfect foil or balance for
all those flavors? You might even make Pam's dish and serve three or four of
these wines and invite family and friends, neighbors, too and see what you all
think? It's a simple yet really tasty recipe here that Pam has provided the
Cleveland Park community. Thanks Pam. What do you think Michel? Let us know.
