VOLNAY 12 MATROT SANTENOTS

This enchanting Burgundy comes from the Premier Cru vineyard of Santenots, which lies in the commune of Mersault (mainly known for producing white wines). Yet their reds are a force Read More...
to be reckoned with. With an average vine age of 32 years, this beautiful Volnay is delicate while still maintaining firm fruit and structure… the iron fist in the velvet glove, if you will. The wine is light ruby with a pronounced nose of strawberry, rose petals, violets, and a hint of vanilla. This is light and silky on the palate with more strawberry coming through, combined with cranberry and forest floor. This is an elegant, feminine wine with medium to high acidity, and will drink well now with time in the decanter, but can also age to reveal more characteristics for another 5-10 years. A solid buy for Premier Cru Burgundy.

WINE SPECTATOR 90 POINTS - "A distinctive red, with a sweet aroma of burning vine cuttings leading to flavors of wild strawberry and cherry. A mineral note emerges as this lingers on the languid, chalk-tinged finish. Best from 2016 through 2025. 50 cases imported." –BS

wet stone nuances. This is also quite concentrated and powerful with plenty of mineral influence adding lift to the muscular middle weight flavors that deliver excellent length. This is an unusually big villages and while the abundant dry extract does a good job of buffering the firm tannins it still will need ample cellaring."

bodied flavors that exude a fine bead of minerality on the utterly delicious middle weight flavors. I very much like the vibrancy and intensity to the impressively long and firm finish and while this is perhaps not quite as elegant as it usually is, there is plenty to like here."

VINOUSMEDIA 89-92 POINTS :"(totally destemmed): Bright, dark red. Reticent but pure aromas of black cherry, licorice and menthol. Sweet and pliant in the middle palate, showing more black than red fruits. Nicely balanced, rich and intense Volnay, finishing with a suave dusting of tannins and very good grip." -- Stephen Tanzer

STEPHEN TANZER 92 POINTS - "(all whole clusters; 50% new oak; from 60-year-old vines in the upper part of the vineyard, near Richebourg): Good bright red. Read More...
Exhilarating aromas of red cherry, raspberry, citrus zest, cocoa powder and flowers. Complex and razor-sharp, with tightly wound flavors of red berries, citrus peel and flowers. Really extraordinary brooding energy here. Almost painful on the very long, firmly tannic back end. This wonderfully precise wine is likely to require extended cellaring. Has the class of a grand cru."

flavors that brim with a lovely minerality. There is plenty of verve to the saline-inflected finish that is shaped by ripe and sophisticated tannins. A lovely and very understated effort that will need a few years to arrive at its peak."

eROBERT PARKER 89-91 POINTS: "The 2012 Vosne-Romanee Les Champs Perdrix is bridled with an attractive, refined, floral bouquet with lifted dark cherry and bergamot fruit infused with minerals. It is tightly wound at the moment of course but it is sure to unfurl in bottle. The palate is medium-bodied with succulent tannins and exhibits very fine balance, but at the moment it comes across a little abrupt on the finish. Hopefully it will gain more length by the time of bottling."

he achieves by restricting the élevage period and the proportion of new casks. This impeccable Vosne-Romanée is no exception to this rule. The estate practices organic agriculture since 2004 but had already eliminated herbicides since 1998.

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."

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!

Again, Foreau does not produce a Demi-Sec every year. All depends on the level of ripeness at time of harvest. When a Demi-Sec is released by the domaine, it can carry somewhere Read More...
between 8 and sometimes as much as 20 grams or so of residual sugar but, more often than not, a Foreau Demi-Sec will be at the 8 to 12 grams RS level. Obviously, each year develops from its own unique circumstances. As indicated in the general description above, Foreau NEVER chapitalizes to achieve the Demi-Sec level and malo-lactic fermentations are never permitted to occur. All still wines at Foreau are bottled during the spring season following the harvest.

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.
