Tasting: Grand Cru Selections

Will Motley

For an hour and a half tonight, Jay Latham of Grand Cru Selections will offer a lineup of wines that in every way transcends this missive. But allow me to get lyrical.

This is wine you need to sit down for — wait — wine you need to get up and dance for. This is wine to raise your voice to. Post a pic like WTF, too. IMO OMG. Glou glou y'all. Family: This is wine sublime. Can't blink. And (ostensibly) the cornice of the mind's built experience.

This is not Wine 101.

No doubt, it is incumbent upon us to sell bottles. We're a shop. But sometimes (more and more, all the time) we hear the call of a more authentic imperative: to introduce great wine and great wine professionals to beautiful people just like you. No strings attached.

Without Jay and his ilk, we could not do what we do. So enough hype. Enough noise. Tonight, we dine.

In order to stock our shelves with high-quality, small-production libations, it's necessary that two types of folks exist: dedicated craftspeople hell-bent on making their goods, and fierce suppliers committed to making those goods available.

Chicago-based Letherbee Distillers are all about authenticity. They're on tour right now with the annual release of their Vernal Gin. We're lucky enough to host them for a special tasting - of said gin and god knows what else - on Wednesday evening.

These guys bring a party everywhere they go. So while we're not sure exactly what they have in store (fernet cocktails?), we know we're going to have a damn good time!

Thursday we host Grand Cru Selections, one of the great small portfolios now supplying handcrafted wines to Nashville. This isn't a gimmick! Importers like Grand Cru Selections risk it all in order to bring terroir-driven, small-production wine to boutique shops like ours. Without them, we could not do what we do.

The preliminary lineup of wines Jay Latham will be pouring is nothing short of phenomenal. I won't be able to attend this one, and I have to say: as I write this email, I am deeply regretting that fact.
