Blanc de Blancs Brut 2008
 

The Rothschild family has been involved in the Champagne industry for a while. It all started post WW2 when Philippe de Rothschild got solicited by the Ruinart Family to help them financially save their Champagne House, resulting in a 40% share deal to be signed in favor of The Baron. The first Baron Philippe de Rothschild labels were produced and kept within the Rothschild Family. Then in 1963 Ruinart got sold to Moët & Chandon. Philippe de Rothschild remained for a little period at the board before resigning and moving the investment to Chateau Clerc Millon in Pauillac.

Bourgogne Chardonnay

Located in the heart of the Chablis region, Maison Pascal Bouchard offers a full range of wines from Chablis and the Grand Auxerrois region, spreading over 40 hectares. Pascal Bouchard is one of the leading negociants, working closely with small quality groomed growers. The impressive modern cuverie is perfectly suited to the highest quality requirement with crop handled by gravity, possibility to vinify micro-cuvées separately thanks to a park of various tank sizes, and an underground thermo-regulated wine cellar to allow the wines to age perfectly. All the bottling and shipping is done on site. In 2015 Maison Pascal Bouchard got purchased by Burgundy Maison Albert Bichot, also proprietor of Chablis Château Long-Depaquit. The two entities share their respective knowledge, even though they are run and managed separately.

Chardonnay grown on portlandian limestone in the Chablis region. Aged 12 months in stainless steel tanks and used oak barrels (20%)

Delicate nose of white fruit and dry stone. Refreshing and lively with hints of flint, vanilla and wax. Chalk, lemon and apple are featured in the tense mouth. This is a quaffing wine!

Bourgogne Pinot Noir

The Beaumont family’s wine growing activity stretches back seven generations. In 1991, Thierry took over the family domaine in Morey-Saint-Denis, creating the “Domaine des Beaumont” name, exclusive to the family. They originally sold their entire harvest to négociants. Thierry only switched to selling wine in bottles in 1999, making a significant investment in facilities and professional equipment enabling the domaine to produce very fine, expressive, deep and powerful red wines. The vineyards, cover nearly 6 hectares and include (besides the Pinot Noir of course) a rare white Morey-Saint-Denis (Chardonnay) since 2004. Managed according to sustainable viticulture principles, they extend over the villages of Morey-Saint-Denis, Gevrey-Chambertin and Chambolle-Musigny and include superb Grand Cru parcels (Charmes Chambertin and Mazoyères Chambertin since 2014) and Premier Cru parcels (Gevrey Chambertin 1er Cru “Les Combottes’, the only Burgundy Premier Cru totally surrounded by 3 Grands Crus). The domaine’s overall production is in the range of 25-30,000 bottles.

100% old vine pinot noir rooted in a rich terroir of clay limestone base rock topped with brown fertile soils. Hand harvested. Destemmed. Pre-cold fermentation for a few days. Indigenous yeast. Three week maceration in open concrete vats. Aged 12 months in French oak barrel (60% new). Unfiltered.

Needs to be decanted. Intense flavours of red berries (blackcurrant, cherry, wild stawberry). Beautiful dry tannic structure lift up by a well balanced acidity. It takes a bit of time to open up but then it displays soft gamey flavours, red fruit and light leather notes

Brouilly en Saburin Pollen

The estate dates back to 1789 (French Revolution) and has been owned by the Perroud Family since. Today, Robert, 7th generation, manages the organically farmed domaine and beautifully crafts terroir driven gamay wines: he is considered as one of the best of the Appellation.

A selection of the oldest gamay vines from the south-exposed ‘‘Les Balloquets’’ site comes into this Cuvée. The soils are composed of schist and pink granite with the presence of amethysts. Hand harvested. Semi-carbonic maceration in concrete vats. Indigineous yeasts. Aged 12 months in used Auxey-Duresses wine barrels. 

 

From a selection of the estate's best fruit, this wine is richly structured, firmly textured and likely to age well in the medium term. The black fruits are still young, giving a brightness to the wine that perhaps should be allowed to calm down. Drink this ripe wine from late 2018.

Bucelas Espumante Brut Nature

Tucked away in the chalky hills of Bucelas, Quinta Da Murta is located 25km North East of Lisbon, in the basin Lusitanica dating from the Upper Jurassic, lower Tithonian (Portlandian limestone identical to the Chablis region of France). The estate is fully biodynamic.

Hand harvested. Wild yeast fermented in small stainless steel tanks. Aged on lees in both stainless steel tanks and used french oak barrels with batonnage. Strict traditional “methode champenoise” with manual disgorgement elapsed after a period of 24 months “sur lie”. No dosage (no sugar added).

Salty and marine, this crisp brut nature wine sings of place: the briny Atlantic coast and calcareous-laced soils of Bucelas. Chalky throughout, with wild scrubby myrtle, lemon thistle, lemon pith, riffing sea salts and driving, shearing acidity. Twenty four months on the lees gives structure without heft; this is light, lean and riveting, vibrating on the finish, and drinking beautifully with fresh oysters.

Aged eight months on its lees in stainless steel tanks, it is a lively and harmonious wine with aromas of high toned chalky minerals, freshly grated lemon zest and sweet butter. Lithe and sprightly on the palate, the Chablis’ brilliant acidity and smoky, flinty mineral spine lift its core of buttery citrus fruit.

Chambolle 1er Cru Les Feusselottes

Lucien Lemoine is a boutique, haute-couture négociant house established by Mounir and Rotem Saouma in 1999. After two decades of work, they are amongst the most prominent Burgundy producers, acclaimed for some of the most sought after wines in the world. A traditionalist approach – hand crafted wines from an array of Burgundy’s great terroirs sourced from the most iconic producers. In the late 1980s, Mounir Saouma’s visit to a Trappist monastery in the Middle East led to a prolonged stay during which he worked in the monastery vineyards and first learned to make wine. He subsequently studied Viticulture and Oenology in Montpellier, followed by six years working in Burgundy, other areas of France, and California. During this time he became fascinated by traditional methods of viticulture, vinification, and aging. In 1999 he decided to push to the extreme all he had seen and experienced, and with his wife Rotem created a small cellar dedicated to the philosophy of making wines of purity and typicity. Lucien le Moine produces only 1er Crus and Grand Crus from Burgundy with a conscious limit of 100 barrels (1 to 3 barrels - 300 to 900 bottles - maximum per appellations)

The alcoholic fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. Half way through the fermentation, the juice is sent to barrels for malolactic (25% new, combination of 228L, 450L and 500L). Aged 14 months with periodic batonnage.

 

Intensely flavored and a bit sweeter than the Vergers but with its acidity not yet in full harmony with its impression of sucrosité. Finishes with a distinctly rocky, phenolic finish that will require some bottle aging.

Chassagne Montrachet 1er Cru Les Vergers
 

Philippe Colin established his domaine in 2004; he had previously worked alongside his father and brother at the family domaine, Michel Colin-Deleger. (His brother, Bruno, founded his own domaine around the same time.) Domaine Philippe Colin’s holdings stretch approximately 30 acres with vineyards mainly in the Chassagne-Montrachet area but also in Santenay, Puligny- Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. He covers 24 appellations in total through his selections, which are classified as Bourgogne, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Philippe upholds the philosophy of respecting the vineyards, intervening as little as possible to allow the purest expression of terroir to shine through, as each plot is markedly different. Philippe Colin recently purchased Topiary Estate in Franschhoek, South Africa.

100% chardonnay. Les Vergers vineyard is situated at the edge of Chassagne-Montrachet, in the alluvial fan of the Combe de Saint-Aubin. It is positioned directly below the premier cru site of Les Chaumées and just above premier cru Les Chenevottes. Northeast facing. Shallow soils of calcareous clay. The age of the vines ranges from 10-65 years old. Handpicked. The alcoholic fermentation starts in stainless steel tanks with indigenous yeasts. Half way through the fermentation, the juice is sent to barrels for malolactic (25% new, combination of 228L, 450L and 500L). Aged 14 months with periodic batonnage.

 

Rich and creamy, yet balanced by vibrant acidity, this incisive style marshals vanilla cream, pastry, peach and citrus flavors to a lingering conclusion. The expansive finish goes on and on.

100% chardonnay. Village blend of 15 plots spread over the appellation from Santenay to Puligny Montrachet village borders. Limestone and calcareous clay soils. Vines range in age from 35-40 years old. Aged in barrel (25% new) for 11 months, with periodic lees stirring and then racked to tank where it was blended and rested for an additional few months before a light filtration, final blending and bottling.

 

Pretty bouquet with scents of orange zest and citrus lemon, the oak nicely integrated. The palate is well defined with a light, saline entry, plenty of lime flavors and a simple but crisp finish.

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Blanc Magis

Burgundy meets the Rhone! When Mounir Saouma and his wife Rotem Brakin (owners of highly sought-after Burgundy micro-negociant Lucien Le Moine) had an opportunity in 2009 to purchase a neglected vineyard in the Pignan area, they did not hesitate! The Clos Saouma winery is based near Orange, in the Vaucluse, just north of Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Today they farm a total of 21 acres across 8 vineyards in all 5 villages of the appellation (Chateauneuf-du-Pape, Bedarrides, Sorgues, Courthezon and Orange) including that cherished piece of Pignan site (nieghbor of Château Rayas). In almost every respect, the Saoumas are vinifying their southern Rhône wines in the same manner as their Burgundy wines: they employ ‘whole-cluster’ fermentation; no punch down, no racking and subject the wines to exceptionally long cellar aging (24 to 36 month élévage)  in a cold underground cellar; and minimize their use of sulfur by trapping trace Co2 left over from fermentation. 

75% Grenache Blanc, 10% Clairette, 10% Roussanne, 5% Bourboulenc  Farmed in the limestone Pierredon vineyard in Bedarrides. Hand harvested. After a hard pressing of whole cluster grapes into 500 liter barrels and 1,600 liter cement eggs, fermentation takes place, and the wine remains undisturbed for 18 months – no punching down, no racking, never sulfured, no filtration. Only 3% of Chateauneuf is white, and virtually all of it is bottled after 6 months. Mounir’s chateauneuf is aged for a minimum of 24 months and has already been compared to some of the great white Burgundy crus for its depth and minerality.

'' This wine is a work in progress – but everything suggests that it will be a majestic Magis. At this stage it's a kind of engine of blossom, hurling spring-fresh fruit tree petals out in every direction. On the palate it's hyper-expressive and articulate; blossomy for now, but with plenty of marrow packing its bones, too. Look out for this exceptionally promising wine in a year or two.''

Châteauneuf-du-Pape Rouge Omnia

80% Grenache, 10% Syrah, 10% Mourvèdre. Mounir Saouma likes to describe Chateauneuf-du-Pape as a mosaic, with all the wild traditions and differences together making for very different interpretations. Omnia, Latin for “all,” is his attempt to encompass the entire region’s terroir and winemaking history in one glass. The fruit comes from across all 5 of the Chateauneuf communes, and the wine is vinified in a variety of vessels. The fruit is pressed firmly with small presses dating from the late 1970s, left in tank to macerate at relatively cool temperatures for 8 days, and then transferred to a combination of barrels, foudres, cement, and even eggs are used, all except the last of which can be considered “traditional” within the diversity of Chateauneuf’s viticultural history. The wines are never punched down, never racked, and only receive minimal sulfur after 18 months, and not filtered before bottling.

''Sublime, with a beguiling mouthfeel to the layers of cherry puree, steeped plum and warmed raspberry coulis fruit flavors, melded with rooibos tea, bergamot, incense and jasmine notes. The long finish features subtle minerality and remarkable persistence, seeming to move with grace. Grenache, Syrah and Mourvèdre. Best from 2021 through 2045.''

100% old Grenache from the Pignan vineyards (neighbor of Château Rayas). The fruit is pressed firmly with small presses dating from the late 1970s, left in tank to macerate at relatively cool temperatures for 11 days, and then transferred to 228 and 500 l barrels  for the next three years. The wine is never punched down, never racked, and only receive minimal sulfur after 18 months, and not filtered before bottling.

Glistening ruby-red. Extremely sexy, spice-accented aromas of ripe red berries, incense and potpourri, along with a potent, smoky mineral element that adds vivacious lift. Offers sweet, palate-staining raspberry, cherry pastry, spicecake and floral pastille flavors that show remarkable definition and back-end thrust. Displays a compelling blend of richness and energy and finishes with outstanding clarity and almost undetectable, silky tannins that sneak in slowly.

Chenas Vieilles Vignes

The calm and modesty shown by Pascal are in perfect harmony with the decor that surrounds his isolated estate. Even though he doesn't come from generations of vignerons, he managed, in relatively short time, to establish himself as one of the top producers in Chenas. He started his estate with only 4 acres of old gamay vines in Chenas which has now be extended to 10 hectares spreading over the appellations of Chenas, Fleurie and Juliénas.

Thanks to the estate isolation, Pascal can peacefully apply his organic approach to his vines without potential interference from the neighbors. All the vineyard work is done by hand, in respect of the surrounding biodiversity. Winemaking is traditional with use of concrete vats and long maceration. 

Chenas is the smallest of all the Crus of Beaujolais. 100% Gamay from un-trellised vines between 40 and over 110 years old with steep southern exposure in pink, red granite, quartz soils, the subsoil is manganese-rich. Vines are planted at 300 meters elevation. Yield is 40hl/ha. Hand harvested. Whole cluster maceration for 20 days. 12-14 day fermentation in concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Spends a few months on lees after malolactic. Aged 8 months in neutral oak barrels. Light filtration before bottling, no fining. 

 

Opaque ruby. Assertive dark berry, spicecake and pungent floral scents are complemented by deeper suggestions of licorice and musky earth. Smooth and deeply concentrated, offering mineral-laced bitter cherry and blackberry flavors that flesh out and pick up a spicy nuance with aeration. Velvety tannins add gentle grip to the finish, which hangs on with strong, dark-fruit-driven tenacity.

Lucien Lemoine is a boutique, haute-couture négociant house established by Mounir and Rotem Saouma in 1999. After two decades of work, they are amongst the most prominent Burgundy producers, acclaimed for some of the most sought after wines in the world. A traditionalist approach – hand crafted wines from an array of Burgundy’s great terroirs sourced from the most iconic producers. In the late 1980s, Mounir Saouma’s visit to a Trappist monastery in the Middle East led to a prolonged stay during which he worked in the monastery vineyards and first learned to make wine. He subsequently studied Viticulture and Oenology in Montpellier, followed by six years working in Burgundy, other areas of France, and California. During this time he became fascinated by traditional methods of viticulture, vinification, and aging. In 1999 he decided to push to the extreme all he had seen and experienced, and with his wife Rotem created a small cellar dedicated to the philosophy of making wines of purity and typicity. Lucien le Moine produces only 1er Crus and Grand Crus from Burgundy with a conscious limit of 100 barrels (1 to 3 barrels - 300 to 900 bottles - maximum per appellations)

Mostly Grenache Blanc, along with a touch of Roussanne, Marsanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Viognier. INOPIA translates to “made from nothing” in Latin.

The soils are predominately composed of clay with little river stones called “Grès” which provide both favorable humidity for the dry climate and plenty of mineral elements. Hand harvested. After a hard pressing of whole cluster grapes into 500 liter barrels and 1,600 liter cement eggs, fermentation takes place, and the wine remains undisturbed for 18 months – no pumping over, no punching down, no fining, no filtration.

"A lovely echo of hazelnut weaves in and out, while creamed pear and yellow apple fruit glides through. Lemon curd, brioche and verbena notes add range on the stylish and lengthy finish. Very seductive. Grenache Blanc, Roussanne, Marsanne, Bourboulenc, Clairette and Viognier. Drink now through 2022."

Côtes du Jura Blanc Tradition

Oldest Castle Vineyard of France, Château d’Arlay has remained in the same family for over 1,000 years. It was owned, at different times, by the Kings of England, then Spain and finally France. Count Alain de Laguiche has been at the helm of Château d’Arlay since the early 1980s.

The organic/biodynamic 25 hectare property (62 acres) is planted with an average of 60 year old vines of Poulsard / Trousseau / Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay / Savagnin for the whites. The rich and complex terroir is composed of limestone and various marls. Their southern facing vines benefit from maximum maturity and are protected from northern winds by the hill and the ruins of the medieval castle.

Côtes du Jura Corail

Oldest Castle Vineyard of France, Château d’Arlay has remained in the same family for over 1,000 years. It was owned, at different times, by the Kings of England, then Spain and finally France. Count Alain de Laguiche has been at the helm of Château d’Arlay since the early 1980s.

The organic/biodynamic 25 hectare property (62 acres) is planted with an average of 60 year old vines of Poulsard / Trousseau / Pinot Noir for the reds and Chardonnay / Savagnin for the whites. The rich and complex terroir is composed of limestone and various marls. Their southern facing vines benefit from maximum maturity and are protected from northern winds by the hill and the ruins of the medieval castle. The estate is renowned for its traditional wine-making and long oak barrel ageing. Fresh, complex with amazing ageing potential wines are thus produced. Annual production is approximately 90,000 bottles.

Co-fermentation of the five indigenous varietals (poulsard, trousseau, pinot noir, chardonnay and savagnin) like it used to be done in Jura ages ago. This ancient custom has disappeared except at Château d'Arlay where they are, to-date, the only one left to perpetuate this tradition. All the grapes are vatted together: 60% pinot noir, 20% poulsard, 5% trousseau, 10% chardonnay, and 5 % savagnin). After a ten day maceration, the wine is sent to used oak barrels for three years. The wine is not filtered.

Spicy light red colour, almost like a rosé, with an slightly oxydative nose of fresh rose, raspberries, earthy spices. The wine carried by a vibrand acidity and light tannins that makes it very enjoyable to drink. It is definitely a bit off the beaten path.

Extra Brut Non Vintage
 

The Rothschild family has been involved in the Champagne industry for a while. It all started post WW2 when Philippe de Rothschild got solicited by the Ruinart Family to help them financially save their Champagne House, resulting in a 40% share deal to be signed in favor of The Baron. The first Baron Philippe de Rothschild labels were produced and kept within the Rothschild Family. Then in 1963 Ruinart got sold to Moët & Chandon. Philippe de Rothschild remained for a little period at the board before resigning and moving the investment to Chateau Clerc Millon in Pauillac. In 2003, the Rothschild Family decided to join the arrows of their coat of arms to launch the House of Champagne Barons de Rothschild.

Blend of 60% chardonnay and 40% pinot noir from the Champagne region’s best terroirs, aged at least 3 years sur latte. 40% of reserve wines have been added to the Cuvée. While most Champagnes are typically made with 20 to 25 percent of Grand Cru village, Barons de Rothschild Brut is made with 82 percent of the fruit coming from Grand Cru villages. Low dosage (6g/l) and kept at least 6 months after the disgorgement process.

 

Aroma of lemons, yellow plums, apricots, grapefruits, toasted brioche. In the mouth it is lemony fresh and dry with well integrated acidity, hints of stone fruits and toasted notes at the finish. Great aperitif or pair it with scallops, tuna tartar, white fish ceviche, fish or seafood sashimi, fruit desserts.

Franciacorta '61 Brut
 

Berlucchi is an iconic house and pioneer in Italy: it was the first winery to release a metodo classico Franciacorta in the 60’s. Berlucchi is also the most powerful premium sparkling wine brand in Italy. The name Franciacorta comes from the terms Francae Curtes, name given during the feudal period to the communities of French Benedictine monks who settled in the region to cultivate the vine. These communities were exempted from the princely taxes in exchange for their services. Francae Curtes (franc de taxe in French) therefore means free of taxes. It then evolved through time to the Italian version Franciacorta.

90% chardonnay and 10% pinot noir. Selection of old vines. Varietals vinified separately. The assemblage of the cuvée is decided in the spring following harvest. Matured for a minimum of 24 months on lies followed by an additional 2 months after disgorgement.

A blend of 90% Chardonnay and 10% Pinot Noir, this refined sparkler opens with heady aromas of white wild flower, citrus and a whiff of bread crust. On the lively palate, fresh acidity brightens creamy white peach, Golden Delicious apple and lemon drop. A brioche note wraps up the finish.

Fronholz Muscat

Biodynamic since 1997, Domaine Ostertag is renowned for producing wines with concentration, depth and immense personality. 

In an act of rejection against the official classifications dictated by the A.O.C., he made up his own categories: Vins de Fruit that express fruit character rather than that of a specific vineyard site, Vins de Pierre reflecting the terroir from which they originate, and Vins de Temps that rely on time and weather to encourage the development of botrytis.

2018 marks a new start to the estate with the takeover of Arthur, the son of André Ostertag. With a sensitivity as sharp as his father for whites, he brought his touch in 2016 to a few vintages and notably advanced the reds. 

Old vine Muscat Ottonel. Fronholz refers to the compulsary wood harvest duty (‘bois de corvée’) peasants had to carry out to the benefit of the local lord in the Middle-Ages. The atypical, and rare, South West exposed vineyard benefits from a unique position as it is separated from the Vosges Mountains by a little plain: the small hill then stands on its own. In the 1980’s, the INAO turned down the Grand Cru appellation for the site. The soils are composed of sandstone, clay and sand. It is a very crystalline terroir with some quartz pebbles. Hand harvested. Aged 12 months on lees in stainless steel vats. Dry wine (6g/l)

A lovely mix of gentle rose petal, sandalwood and honeysuckle perfumes the nose. The palate has an earthy element, grounding these flavors and a texture of silky peach skin, along with soft peachy fruit. The body is light and lifted—an almost weightless pleasure—but with concentration and lasting flavors. This is a compact bundle of aromatic joy.

Gevrey 1er Cru Lavaut Saint Jacques

Lucien Lemoine is a boutique, haute-couture négociant house established by Mounir and Rotem Saouma in 1999. After two decades of work, they are amongst the most prominent Burgundy producers, acclaimed for some of the most sought after wines in the world. A traditionalist approach – hand crafted wines from an array of Burgundy’s great terroirs sourced from the most iconic producers. In the late 1980s, Mounir Saouma’s visit to a Trappist monastery in the Middle East led to a prolonged stay during which he worked in the monastery vineyards and first learned to make wine. He subsequently studied Viticulture and Oenology in Montpellier, followed by six years working in Burgundy, other areas of France, and California. During this time he became fascinated by traditional methods of viticulture, vinification, and aging. In 1999 he decided to push to the extreme all he had seen and experienced, and with his wife Rotem created a small cellar dedicated to the philosophy of making wines of purity and typicity. Lucien le Moine produces only 1er Crus and Grand Crus from Burgundy with a conscious limit of 100 barrels (1 to 3 barrels - 300 to 900 bottles - maximum per appellations)

Juliénas Les Cerisiers Vieilles Vignes

The calm and modesty shown by Pascal are in perfect harmony with the decor that surrounds his isolated estate. Even though he doesn't come from generations of vignerons, he managed, in relatively short time, to establish himself as one of the top producers in Chenas. He started his estate with only 4 acres of old gamay vines in Chenas which has now be extended to 10 hectares spreading over the appellations of Chenas, Fleurie and Juliénas.

Thanks to the estate isolation, Pascal can peacefully apply his organic approach to his vines without potential interference from the neighbors. All the vineyard work is done by hand, in respect of the surrounding biodiversity. Winemaking is traditional with use of concrete vats and long maceration. 

The most defining aspect of Juliénas from a terroir perspective is the shift from the igneous-dominant slopes to the west of the zone, peppered with blue granite and diorite, to the flatter areas around the town of Juliénas itself, where the soils transition through to schist and alluvium with pockets of sand and clay.

100% Gamay from un-trellised 70 years old vines planted at 300 meters elevation with east/southeast exposureYield is 40hl/ha. Hand harvested. Whole cluster maceration for 20 days. 12-14 day fermentation in concrete vats using indigenous yeasts. Spends a few months on lees after malolactic. Aged 8 months in concrete vats and neutral oak barrels (15%). Light filtration before bottling, no fining. 

 

Brilliant violet. Ripe blue fruit, floral pastille and spice aromas are enlivened by a smoky mineral flourish. Sappy boysenberry and violet flavors spread out through the midpalate and become sweeter with air. Fleshy and smooth in texture but lively as well. Finishes sappy and long, with gentle tannins lending shape and final grip.

Nuits Saint Georges

Regarded as one of the rising stars of Burgundy, Domaine Duband has been recognized recently by La Revue du Vin de France (one of France’s leading wine guides), when they awarded the Domaine their coveted 3 stars, along with other super stars like DRC, Leroy and Georges Roumier. Certified organic since 2010, the 17 hectare estate produces 23 different appellations from Nuits St Georges to Gevrey Chambertin.

  100% pinot noir. Forty years old average vines coming from the lieux-dit Les Herbues. The clay and limestone terroir faces east. Hand harvested. 80% whole cluster. Two week long maceration in stainless steel tanks. Aged 14 months in new oak barrels (40%) and used oak barrels (60%). No fining, no filtration.

 

There is plenty of sauvage character to the overtly earthy aromas of red and dark currant, autumn leaves and subtle floral nuances. There is fine size, weight and mid-palate density to the medium-bodied flavors that possess plenty of dry extract that does a very good job of buffering the moderately firm tannins shaping the impressively complex and persistent, if rustic, finale. Fine quality here.

Rosé Brut Non Vintage
 

The Rothschild family has been involved in the Champagne industry for a while. It all started post WW2 when Philippe de Rothschild got solicited by the Ruinart Family to help them financially save their Champagne House, resulting in a 40% share deal to be signed in favor of The Baron. The first Baron Philippe de Rothschild labels were produced and kept within the Rothschild Family. Then in 1963 Ruinart got sold to Moët & Chandon. Philippe de Rothschild remained for a little period at the board before resigning and moving the investment to Chateau Clerc Millon in Pauillac. In 2003, the Rothschild Family decided to join the arrows of their coat of arms to launch the House of Champagne Barons de Rothschild.

Blend of 85% chardonnay (Côte des Blancs: Avize, Cramant, Mesnil sur Oger and Vertus) and 15% pinot noir of which 5% is vinified as a red wine. Aged at least 3 years sur latte. 40% of reserve wines have been added to the Cuvée. Low dosage (6g/l) and kept at least 6 months after the disgorgement process.

 

A rich and smoky hint of roasted nut underscores flavors of baked white cherry and pink grapefruit granita in this lively rosé Champagne, with a subtle, creamy finish.

Santenay 1er Cru Les Gravières
 

Philippe Colin established his domaine in 2004; he had previously worked alongside his father and brother at the family domaine, Michel Colin-Deleger. (His brother, Bruno, founded his own domaine around the same time.) Domaine Philippe Colin’s holdings stretch approximately 30 acres with vineyards mainly in the Chassagne-Montrachet area but also in Santenay, Puligny- Montrachet and Saint-Aubin. He covers 24 appellations in total through his selections, which are classified as Bourgogne, Village, Premier Cru and Grand Cru. Philippe upholds the philosophy of respecting the vineyards, intervening as little as possible to allow the purest expression of terroir to shine through, as each plot is markedly different. Philippe Colin recently purchased Topiary Estate in Franschhoek, South Africa.

100% pinot noir. Les Gravières vineyard  40 year old vineyard is the largest 1er Cru in Santenay. The shallow soils are composed of sand, limestone and marls. Handpicked. Fully destemmed. Pre-cold fermentation in stainless steel tanks. Three week maceration with a few pigeages and pumping over. Aged 13 months in 228l barrels (35% new). 

 

Attractive iodine-tinged bouquet that gains intensity in the glass, revealing hints of black truffle in the background. The palate is medium-bodied with firm tannins and a powdery texture. It clams up a little on the finish, which feels a little rustic, but it should develop more clarity by bottling time.

Savennière Coulée de Serrant

First planted in 1130 by Cistercian monks, La Coulée de Serrant lies completely within the boundaries of Savennières and is one of the only three single estate appellations in France (along with Romanée Conti and Château-Grillet).

La Coulée de Serrant has been in the Joly family since 1962. It is the finest biodynamic vineyards in the world which fascinated many talented great producers such as Lalou Bize-Leroy and Anne-Claude Leflaive. Nicolas Joly began converting the family domaine to biodynamics in 1981. The 17.2 acres of vines at the Clos are between 35 and 80 years old, growing on steep south east-to-west facing schist and quartz soils, overlooking the Loire River. The wine ferments and ages in 500-litre barrels, with no more than five percent new oak in a vintage. No chaptilization, only indigenous yeasts are employed. The result of this non interventionist philosophy crafts one of the greatest white wines in the world!

Hand harvested, it takes over three to four weeks with up to five different passes, looking for the ripest fruit. The fermentation lasts two to four months in tanks and barrels with indigenous yeasts and no temperature control. The wine is aged for 6-8 months on fine lees in neutral 500L oak barrels (a max of 5% new). It’s bottled with a light filtration, no fining, and a low amount of sulfur. Total production averages 1,650 - 2,100 cases per year.

Languedoc Rouge

Founded in 1995, Calmel & Joseph is a premium maison de négoce specializing in Languedoc-Roussillon wines. Over the years, they have built close personal relationships with a large number of growers from all appellations (model based on Rhône specialist Tardieu Laurent), interacting with them from the initial vineyard management to bottling.

50% Syrah, 30% Grenache and 20% Carignan. In order to craft a representative cuvée of what the Languedoc region has best to offer, Calmel & Joseph has selected the best terroir expressions for each of the varietals. Up against the Montagne Noire in the Minnervois region, the Syrah grows in a limestone soil. The Grenache comes from the beautiful granitic and schist soils of North West Roussillon while the Carignan thrive on red clay terroirs. The grapes are manually harvested. Partial crushing of 50% berries. Fermentation takes place at 25°- 28° C for 10 days, with two daily push-downs. No oak. Aged for 6 months in concrete vats.

 

Classic introductory Languedoc rouge with a medium dark red colour and a spicy, soupy nose of dried herbs (garrigue) and a mix of red and black fruits. The attack is fresh and clean with more pure blackcurrant and a savoury garrigue undercurrent. The blend is 50/30/20 syrah, grenache and carignan, each grown on different soils in different locations. The fruit is hand-picked and only partly crushed, and fermented before aging in concrete tanks for six months. It is a delicious drinking red wine that is ready to drink.

Distinctive nose: pomegranate and beetroot, orange peel, guava. Glossy intensity spreads across the palate filling all corners of the mouth with reverberating layers of flavour. Clenched with tension and intent, ambitious, beautifully balanced, tannins smouldering in the background, no single component dominating. Strong, spiced finish. Almost long, and then it just fades a tiny bit too quickly for so much delivery.’’

Francs Côtes de Bordeaux

Château Puyanché has been in the Arbo family for five generations, since the early 20th century. The estate consists of 38 hectares of old vines that are farmed with an organic approach. Today the estate is spread over 51 hectares divided up into two appellations: Francs Côtes de Bordeaux and  (38 hectares in red and 3 in white) and Castillon Côtes de Bordeaux (10 hectare in red). The use of chemical has drastically been reduced. The biodiversity has been enhanced by keeping hedgerows and rotating fallow areas. Adding up to the organic approach, the meticulous vineyard work is ensured to produce healthy grapes. As for winemaking, all the whites (75% sauvignon blanc, 25% semillon) are barrel fermented (30% new) on their lees, with periodic stirring. All the reds (80% merlot, 20% cabernet sauvignon) are vinified in stainless tanks and then aged in either tanks or barrels depending the appellation.

Francs is the smallest of the Bordeaux Côtes appellations including just less than 500 hectares of vines with around 50 different producers. It lies east of St. Emilion between the appellations of the Côtes de Castillon and Puisseguin St. Emilion. The region takes its name after the first King of the Franks victory over the Visigoths. Mainly made up of clay and limestone soils in rolling hillsides, Francs makes mainly red wines from Merlot grapes with a small amount of highly sought after whites.

 

This is a fine, smoky wine with great fruit and some firm tannins. It has a touch of minerality and a dry structure.

Baked-apple and wood aromas show strongly in this ripe wine. Rich texture. Balancing the toastiness, the ripe fruits are complex, peach and apple flavors going along with the spice.

Vallée d'Aoste Fumin

The Grosjean family traces its roots back to the village of Fornet (1781) in the high mountain passes of the Valle d’Aosta known as Valgrisenche where they raised cattle. During the summer months, the family cultivated grapes and chestnuts on the slopes at lower altitude, stocking up on wine to supply themselves over the long winters. In 1969, Dauphin Grosjean, the father of the five sons that now collaborate to produce the wines of this estate, was encouraged to present his wine at the local “wine expo”. The 12-hectare domaine is located in the hamlet of Ollignan on the border of the towns of Quart and Saint Christophe and includes “cru” vineyard sites such as Tzeriat, Rovettaz, Creton and Touren in Quart, plus Tzantè de Bagnere, Merletta and Castello di Pleod in Saint Christophe. Sustainable farming techniques have been used since the beginning in 1975 (no chemicals). The new generation is now taking over with an orientation towards an organic (2011) / biodynamic approach.

Barbera d'Alba Piani

Pelissero is a family-run wine-growing estate located in the district of Treiso, in the heart of the zone of production of Barbaresco, Piedmont. The first bottles dated back to 1960 and were produced by Luigi Pelissero, whose work was followed by his son, Oenologist Giorgio. Giorgio is a one man-show sharing his busy schedule between the vineyards and cellar while in the meantime acting as the export/wine ambassador for 60 countries!  Pelissero has a meticulous, dynamic and organic viticulture / winemaking approach. The estate spreads over 40 hectares in Treiso, Barbaresco, Neive, Neviglie and Alba. Annual production is about 250,000 bottles.

 
The Piani hill is located in Ferrere (Treiso). Old vine Barbera rooted in a west facing  vineyards at an elevation of 250 to 350m. The soil is of medium mixture with a little percentage of a kind of clay very similar to bentonite that makes the soil spongy and very unstable. Hand harvested. Maceration takes 15-20 days in stainless steel cask with controlled temperature. Then ageing is about 8-9 months in oak barrels (30-40% in barrique and the remaining in 50 hl barrels).
 
Deeply colored and concentrated, Barbera d'Alba Piani is powerful, dense and explosive. It delivers saturated flavors of plum, blackberry, chocolate and toasty oak, balanced and fresh, in a ripe, extracted style. The dusty finish echoes the chocolate and earth elements. This is a decidedly virile, potent Barbera with huge tannins that need time to soften.

Acidity is quite pronounced which brings versatility when matching with food.

Riviera Ligure di Ponente Pigato

Founded in 1870 by Tommaso Rondelli on the hills of Val Nervia, Terre Bianche is a family estate perched high above the small medieval town of Dolceacqua in Liguria. The 10 ha estate, now managed by Filippo Rondelli, is spread over a wide variety of soils including blue marl and white and red clay. The vineyards are sheer, rocky and are grown in terraces: this is extreme organic viticulture! The focus is on indigenous varieties, the aromatic and charming red Rossese di Dolceacqua (Tibouren in France), the indigenous white Pigato and also its more widely-known cousin, Vermentino. The wines are all fermented and aged in steel tank, bar the single vineyard wines which are aged in barrels with the aim being to minimize as much as possible the influence of oak on the taste of the wine. Of mountain and sea, these are unique, tangy wines of great character. Up there with some of the most authentic, lively and refined wines in Italy.

 

Organic - Pigato is a Ligurian variant of vermentino. The name derives from the dialect ‘pigau’ and refers to the little rusty tones that appear on pigato grapes when they reach advanced maturation.

 

Its golden, intense colour reveals a lasting aroma with hints of peach, acacia honey and aromatic herbs. It’s a dry wine with a lovely bitter aftertaste. Perfect with any fish and crustaceans, grilled white meats, pesto and even cured meats.

Gavi di Gavi La Meirana

La Meirana is the name of the Broglia family estate, established by Bruno Broglia and managed today by his sons, Gian Piero and Paolo, who continue the winery’s ultra-millenary tradition. Now a third generation family business, Broglia safeguards its oldest vineyards, which date back to the 1950s, thanks to the unique calcareous marl soil that allows the vines to have an extended lifespan. However, in the winery, which was renovated in 2000, the best of modern winemaking techniques are used to continue and elevate the tradition of Gavi. Their efforts have been rewarded with recognition as one of the top Gavi producers on the international stage; receiving titles such as Tre Bicchieri, and also as one of the only wines shown at the prestigious G 8 Summit and G20 Summit.

 

Organic - 100% Cortese. La Meirana is the oldest vineyard site of the village of Gavi dating back to year 972. Hand harvest. Indigenous yeasts. Tank fermented and aged for 6 months. No oak.

Rioja Blanco

The Château-inspired winery is a relatively new player in Rioja. Started in 1985 by a group of wine entrepreneurs, Baron de Ley quickly positioned themselves as a quality committed producer: small-yield crops, hand-harvested grapes sourced exclusively from their own vineyards, manual grape sorting (about 850 tons per harvest), dynamic wine-making approach, and state of art barrel/bottle ageing facilities. They established their headquarters in a 16th Century Benedictine monastery on the banks of the Ebro River in Rioja Baja near the town of Mendavia. Their flagship wine Rioja Reserva (tempranillo) received 95 pts by Decanter Magazine for the 2010 vintage. Other unique and exciting wines are completing the offer amongst which a Rioja Reserva Blanco (Viura, Malvasia and Garnacha Blanca); two Rioja reds from the indigenous grapes Graciano and Maturana; and a Rioja Reserva in which seven varieties are blended together (Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha Tinta, Mazuelo, Viura, Malvasia and Garnacha blanca).

 

Blend of 85% Viura and 15% Verdejo coming from the Carboneras vineyards (altitude: 850m), the highest elevation site in Rioja Baja. Hand harversted. Each grape variety is vinified separately and then blended to age for 3 months in stainless steel vats.

 

Pale yellow with greenish glints. The nose surprises you with an attractive explosion of exotic aromas, wild herbs and dill on the palate, a perfect balance of acidity and alcohol, with a fresh, long finish.

Started in 1985 by a group of wine entrepreneurs, Baron de Ley quickly positioned themselves as a quality committed producer: small-yield crops, hand-harvested grapes sourced exclusively from their own vineyards, manual grape sorting (about 850 tons per harvest), dynamic wine-making approach, and state of art barrel/bottle ageing facilities. They established their headquarters in a 16th Century Benedictine monastery on the banks of the Ebro River in Rioja Baja near the town of Mendavia. Their flagship wine Rioja Reserva (tempranillo) received 95 pts by Decanter Magazine for the 2010 vintage. Other unique and exciting wines are completing the offer amongst which a Rioja Reserva Blanco (Viura, Malvasia and Garnacha Blanca); two Rioja reds from the indigenous grapes Graciano and Maturana; and a Rioja Reserva in which seven varieties are blended together (Tempranillo, Graciano, Garnacha Tinta, Mazuelo, Viura, Malvasia and Garnacha blanca).

 

Blend of 70% Viura, 15% Malvasia and 15% Garnacha Blanca. The vineyards are located in the Najerilla Valley in Rioja Alta. Soils are composed of clay and limestone with a rather high content of iron. Each grape variety is vinified seperately and then blended to age 12 months in new American oak barrels.

 

Attractive, bright golden-yellow colour. On the nose you can find a cascade of intense aromas, with dried raisins, almonds and aromatic herbs, followed by sweet honeyed tones and autumn fruits. On the palate it is lively, lasting, deep and complex, with lots of nuances, mineral undertones and a slightly salty touch.

Mainly Tempranillo from the “Los Almendros” estate. Hand harvested. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Aged 6 months in American oak barrels.

 

Intense ruby-red colour. Surprising ripe fruit on the nose, accompanied by fine spicy nuances from its time in the cellar. On the palate it has good presence and mouth-feel, with smooth, rounded tannins and a long finish which brings back the lovely hints of ripe fruit.

Old vine Tempranillo from the Cenicero vineyards located in Rioja Alta. Protected from the cold north winds by the Sierra Cantabria and Oberenes mountain ranges, this zone has a predominantly Atlantic climate, with long winters, cool summers and warm autumns. Hand harvested. Aged 24 months in 50% American and 50% French oak barrels. It has spent another 3 years rounding off in the bottle before release.

 

This is a fine gran reserva from a great vintage. Aromas of vanilla, cedar, earth and spiced black fruits lead to a fresh pure palate with tomato-like snap. Cherry, cassis, tobacco and chocolate flavors finish smooth and clean, with just enough tannic grip.

Attractive, bright cherry-pink colour with violet hues. A fragrant nose in which red-berry fruit, especially raspberries and strawberries come to the fore. On the palate, the wine is round and full of flavour, with a fresh, fruity finish.

Known as Morrastel in France, hard-growing Graciano is usually used in Rioja blends. However, it does especially well in the warm and dry climate of Rioja Baja where it reaches full ripeness with deep purple color and spicy aromas. The grapes come from the Ausejo Vineyards in Rioja Baja, which benefit from a Mediterranean influence with sunny winters and hot summers. Aged for 12 months in American oak barrels.

 

Bright cherry-red color with a good depth and bluish hues at the rim. Intense redcurrant and red-berry fruit aromas with reminders of spice, vanilla and mineral hints. A lively, vibrant attack on the palate with intense flavors.

100% native Maturana grape. Grown in the Finca Alegría vineyards in Rioja Baja, which benefit from a Mediterranean influence with sunny winters and hot summers. Aged for 12 months in French oak barrels.

 

Expect rich black fruits flecked with spice and somehow all through all that, a touch of minerality. The textures are round and lush with plenty of fine-grained tannins and more oak to shed. Best with lamb today or another two to three years in bottle.
