Sisson Parchment These are the fall leaves we’ve missed. Finally – Sisson parchment leaves for cheese boards are being produced again after a long pause – and of course, we have them. Inspired by the French tradition of turning to nature for decoration, these fine parchment paper leaves can be used under cheese, fresh fruits, home-baked breads, or as coasters under glasses and bottles. Fanciful enough to be used in a table decoration, written on, used as place cards, or wherever your imagination leads. Perfect for your fall table.

Wine of the Week
Grand Veneur Cotes du Rhone Les Champauvins ’16 “Now that it’s in the bottle, the 2016 Cotes du Rhone les Champauvins is looking as good as I predicted last year. It’s a full-bodied, concentrated wine that could mop the floor with many Châteauneufs. Rich black cherry fruit is joined by complex herb and spice notes, a creamy mid-palate and a lingering finish. Worth buying by the case.” 92 Pts Wine Advocate $19.99/btl
