DARK CHOCOLATE PECAN TOFFEE handmade in Chapel Hill, NC is back in stock. Both flavors – dark and coffee. It all begins with a layer of traditional English toffee spread thin and cut by hand into bite sized squares. Each piece is coated on both sides with a top-secret blend of dark chocolates. The smooth layers are finished off with the sprinkling of pecans that gives the iconic look and distinctive southern twist!
Pre de Provence For centuries, the luxury of French-milled soaps has remained the gold standard of excellence. Traditional French soap is triple-milled to product a completely uniform and smooth soap, without impurities, thus lasting longer. Each bar of Pré de Provence soap is not only carefully made today by dedicated soapmakers in Provence following their proud traditions, but quad-milled to be smoother and have a richer lather to create our luxurious feel. Using all pure, natural ingredients enriched with shea butter, you can feel the difference. Aromatic fragrances transport you into a moment of calmness, vitality, dreaming, or well-being.
Ashbrook An American take on Morbier, Roasted-peanut aroma and a dreamy, creamy texture. It is a semi-soft washed rind raw cow milk cheese that is aged for approximately three months. A mild funkiness on the rind gives way to a paste that is milky, lactic, and sweet. $24.00/lb
Chablochon Le Chablochon is a French soft ripened, Reblochon style cheese made in the Haute-Savoie. Washed-rind and smear-ripened, it has a nutty taste that remains in the mouth after its soft and uniform center has been enjoyed. $9.50/ea
Jasper Hill Harbison The “it” cheese of the season – just Google it! Full of flavor, similar to Vacherin Mont D’or. With a little age it finishes with meaty, smoky, juniper notes. Spruce wrapped to maintain its creamy goodness. Remove the top and dig in! $19.99/ea

Wine of the Week
Clos Rene Pomerol ’15“A blend of 70% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc and 10% Malbec, the 2015 Clos Rene has a perfumed raspberry preserve and crushed strawberry-scented bouquet. The palate is medium-bodied with fine-grain tannin, a mixture of red and black fruit with a very refined, pastille-like, spicy finish. This is a lovely Pomerol to enjoy over the next 10-15 years, certainly one of the best offerings from the sandier soils on the western sector of the appellation.”
