In checking out their website, which has been updated since I last visited, I noticed that they now have their wine listed posted. You can take a look at it here. Really excited to see about 30 wines by the glass and a lot of half bottles. Half bottles are a real rarity in Frederick. They are a great way to have some wine and not worry about over consumption, although that is not as much of a concern with Maryland’s ‘merlot to go law’ these days. It’s also a fun way to try several different wines with your meal.
The list has a lot of breadth, spanning the globe. There is a lot of emphasis on French wines, and a nice selection of American and German wines as well. With this list everybody should be able to find something that tickles their fancy. A good vaiety of price points as well. Some of the highlights I saw were: a vintage prosecco by the glass, eight half bottles of sparkling wine ( a nice way to start a meal). As mentioned there is a wide range of prices. I saw some very exciting wines at reasonable prices. For example they have a 1999 Robert Mondavi Reserve. According to Wine Spectator this was a 94 point wine (made #12 on their top 100 wines of 2002). You can’t find this for less than $110 retail these days (and this is a restaurant) and they have it listed at $90 which is terrific. Its so reasonable that I am worried that it is a typo. (There are some mistakes I spotted in the list- Chateau Chass-Speen ?!?) If it is a typo please put a bottle aside for me at this price when I stop by as a thank you for finding it. Also the 1999 Paul Jaboulet Aine Domaine St Pierre (WS 93 pts.) has the potential to be a stunning value at $70 if it is still drinking well. (2008 is reportedly near the upper end of the drinking window for a 99 Cornas). Lots of other stuff although the selection of Italians is spare compared to France and Germany. 24 dessert wines by the bottle to finish off your meal.
