Apothecary’s menu comes with helpful descriptors like “creamy mousse” (the Peillot Brut Bugey Champagne) and “amazing w/ cheese” (the Albert Mann auxerrois, or really anything) to help drinkers who know what they’re in the mood for, but can’t quite tell the difference between chardonnay and... stuff that’s not chardonnay. Experienced winos will also feel at home amongst the seasonal offerings and the edgier picks like the “Sex in a Glass” Langhe ‘Finalmente’ nebbiolo.
