Wine of the Week
Domaine de la Romanee-Conti La Tache ’17 “The 2017 La Tâche Grand Cru soars from the glass with a captivating and beautifully integrated bouquet of exotic spices, rose petals, raspberries, cherries and blood orange mingled with notions of cinnamon and coniferous forest floor. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, deep and multidimensional, with a deep and tightly coiled core that marks it out as the most muscular wine in the cellar, displaying considerable concentration and largely concealed structure. While this is a dramatic young La Tâche, there’s evidently plenty held in reserve, too, and it simply has appreciably more presence than any of the other wines that preceded it in this tasting.” 96+ Pts Wine Advocate $2699.00/btl

Face Masks Required Columbia City Council passed an emergency ordinance requiring the use of a face mask. In a continued effort to provide a safe and healthy environment for staff and customers, The Gourmet Shop will be requiring a face mask for anyone to enter the shop or indoor dining area. (This includes standing in line to pay after eating outdoors.) Please be prepared. Stay safe, wash your hands, and mask up!
A Statement on Safety
While our store remains OPEN (9am-6pm Mon thru Sat, 10am-5pm Sun) and café offers outdoor dining and take-out (9am-4pm Mon thru Sat, 10am-4pm Sun), we want to assure you that safety and health are our top priority. For customer and staff safety, we have been adhering to CDC and WHO recommendations and augmented our already strict cleaning regimen including vigilant sanitizing of surfaces, strict use of gloves, and limited personal contact. We will continue to stay updated on new information and regulations and will remain open as long as it is prudent to do so. Thank you for all of the amazing support during this difficult time and keep shopping local!
