Atlanta wine shop Capital City Package is hosting a premier wine sale, celebrating the arrival of two rare French wines, which the shop was able to get at a low price after a wholesaler ordered several cases of wine and mistakenly received the rare 2010 Domaine du Grand Tinel and 2010 Chateauneuf du Pape – both award-winning and critical favorites.

“2010 was one of the finest vintages in the last 25 years in the Rhone Valley of France,” said Capital City Package Certified Wine Specialist Larry Kantrowitz. “Chateauneuf du Pape is one of the finest appellations in the southern Rhone. Grand Tinel has some of the finest vineyards in the area. Phillipe Cambie is the consulting winemaker and this is the finest regular bottling of Grand Tinel I have ever tasted.”

Capital City Package is selling both wines below market price, with Wine Spectator advising a price of $60, and has a limited number of bottles of Chateauneuf du Pape remaining. Wine Spectator gave the Chateauneuf du Pape 91 points on a scale out of 100. This wine is accessible, ripe and polished and has deep fruit flavors of plum, blackberry and boysenberry, as well as a pleasant spice and hints of toasted vanilla bean.

The Chateauneuf du Pape is a blended wine, made of 80% Grenache, 18% Syrah and 2% Mourvedre. Pricing starts at $23.99 per bottle. Capital City Package is also offering 15% discounts on full cases and 20% off 36 or more bottles. Wines priced at numbers ending in seven or eight receive further discounts.

Store hours are Monday – Thursday 8 a.m. - 10 p.m., Friday and Saturday 8 a.m. - 11:30 p.m. and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. - 8 p.m. Only customers with a valid form of identification and over 21 can purchase wine and spirits from Capital City Package Store at 784 Collier Road, Atlanta, GA 30318.
