sandalwood and wet stone hints. There is good verve to the intensely mineral-driven flavors that possess excellent verve on the balanced, complex and highly persistent finish. A classy effort that should reward mid to even longer-term cellaring."

spice hints. There is the same sense of refinement to the equally pure medium weight flavors that possess a beguiling texture that continues onto the balanced and solidly persistent and complex finish. La Riotte is often a wine of finesse and this particular version fits that description."

eROBERT PARKER 90-92 POINTS: "The 2012 Vosne-Romanee 1er Cru Les Beaux Monts comes from a 0.80-hectare parcel. It has a vivacious bouquet with lifted black cherry and creme de cassis scents, citrus peel and a stony element that is only revealed after rigorous aeration. The palate is medium-bodied with a velvety entry matched by well-judged acidity. This is very smooth and generous in the mouth with plenty of black cherry and fruitcake lining the finish. Well-crafted for sure, but it needs to express just a little more mineralite on the finish. Fine."

spices burst from the glass in this intense, head-spinning Champagne. Clean veins of minerality frame a huge, powerful finish imbued with the essence of Pinot. Weighty, rich and powerful, the 2009 impresses for its fabulous balance and inviting, utterly irresistible personality. This is a great showing for the Fidele. Disgorgement date: December 12, 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2019. - Antonio Galloni.

2 STARS - PETER LIEM
"This is notably more open and accessible than previous editions of this cuvée have been at the same stage, even with a relatively recent disgorgement in October of 2011. It shows a voluptuous texture and a rich depth of red-fruit flavor, underlined by an intensely stony minerality, and it finishes with excellent balance and length. The ripeness of the 2009 vintage seems to be ideal for this cuvée, balancing the woodiness that Fidèle often shows in its youth—here the components feel harmoniously integrated from the start, allowing the wine to feel pure, expressive and exuberant. Last tasted: 4/12."

BURGUNDY REPORT
Vintage information 2010: The reds: Like 2009 but with more verve and clarity; like 2008 but with more buffer - very impressive wine at the good addresses, Read More...
but with yields The nose here gives the impression of a bit more muscle and in shape shows more width than depth. Clearly another level of structure on the palate, but those tannins are polished and the flavour is more overtly mineral than fruity. Impressive stuff – the last drops in the glass now show a super-classy red berry note. Despite the polish, proper CV!

Champalou’s Cuvée des Fondraux Vouvray is a mainstay in our cellar. It is consistently good, and an excellent value. This Loire white comes from 45-year-old Chenin Blanc vines grown Read More...
in clay, limestone and flint soils. After harvest, the juice is pressed immediately and aged in neutral wooden barrels for eleven months. Catherine and Didier Champalou have farmed their estate using organic winemaking practices. In the glass, the color is pale gold with a delicately woven bouquet of apples, nectarine and acacia blossoms. This is a fuller-bodied intense wine on the palate, and is off-dry with honeyed pear, marmalade and slightly nutty notes and a lasting finish. There is good acidity present, making this wine harmonious and quite balanced. Try this incredibly food friendly Vouvray with pork, shellfish, chicken and cheese dishes.

This Sauvion is an excellent example of a dry still wine that almost surprised us with how good it is for how little it costs. I say almost because we know how good and how inexpensive Read More...
the wines can be from the Loire Valley. So much expression! Sauvion's nose highlights green apple, peach and mixed stone fruits, hay, quince, stoney minerality and light florals. The palate is rounded upon entry but trimmed with nice acidity. Orchard fruits dominate in taste, peach and nectarine in the foreground, as a light touch of honeyed river water meanders in the background. Serve chilled, with maybe a bit of goat cheese.

Chenin Blanc is a quite versatile grape from the Loire Valley in France - it contains good sweetness, acidity and fruit while remaining fairly neutral in the overall palate zone (which allows things like terroir, vintage differences and winemaker treatment to affect the taste). With such characteristics, and depending on climate conditions and desire of the winemaker, both sparkling and still (dry or dessert) wines can be made - and made well.
