  • 1749 2016 SAUVIGNON BLANC LOIRE VALLEY

    Item #: 322274
    Bottle Size: 750ml

    With a forward nose of vivid fruits, from gooseberry to white peach and white grapefruit, melded with a touch of river water, lanolin and nougat, the palate on 1749 continued and expanded on the initial fruit-laden theme. Sweet yet almost tart, notes of star fruit, more gooseberry and white grapefruit merged with a lush mouthfeel, counterbalanced by good acidity to keep it clean and buoyant. Hints of apricots, orange blossoms and clover honey furthered the delicious depth on the palate. The finish is fresh and quick but with a lingering fruit essence and mixed floral touch that reverberates nicely.

    This wine is perfect for the warm weather we’ve been having and has a classic Loire Valley profile with a nice dollop of New Zealand-esque citrus-- it’s balanced, clean, fresh, uplifting and clearly a worthy Hi-Time Wine of the Month. Enjoy!

    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 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. Pictured above, R to L, Catherine, daughter Céline and husband Didier Champalou.

    From a ripe vintage comes this rich Chenin Blanc redolent of lanolin, pollen, ripe pear and quince over a base of wet stones. The richness in the mouth is cut but the rapier like acidity and the fruit is contrasted nicely by the crisp mineral notes.

    The towering, regal Château de Brézé just outside of Saumur is not only a UNESCO World Heritage site but also, historically, an important reference in fine French wine. Lauded by King Réné Anjou in the 15th century classical literature, the Château de Brézé wines were regarded with such esteem that the royals exchanged them annually with the great Sauternes of Château d’Yquem. The vineyards belonging to the Château de Brézé entered a Renaissance of their own in 2009 when Count de Colbert conferred upon Yves and Arnaud Lambert management of the viticultural estate. The father and son team have immediately converted the entire 25 hectares to organic methods, with official certification as of the 2012 vintage. This movement stems first and foremost from the desire to express each individual Clos in its purest, most vibrant form.
    The Lamberts strive for consistent methods in the cellar, so that each individual terroir is what shines through. Only the traditional champagne methods for the crémants, which—grown on the estate’s chalkiest soils—gives the more prestigious appellation a clear run for its money. The Saumur Blanc and Rouge are vinified and aged exclusively in stainless steel to maintain fruit and freshness. As one moves up in the range and the wines gain in power and density, each of the five Clos wines see an increasing percentage of new oak and longer élevage.

    New owner Arnaud Lambert restored this 15th century estate in 2009 and converted the property to organic farming (currently being converted to biodynamic). The hill of Brézé is one of the great terroirs of the Loire Valley benefiting from higher elevation, cooling wind, and the friable, limestone soil know as Tuffeau intermixed with clay and sand. The Clos du Midi Saumur Blanc is fruity and vibrant on the palate. The fruit is very present (lemon, lime). An excellent representation of a dry Chenin Blanc from Château de Brézé.

    100 % CHENIN BLANC - No dosage. This feels beautifully fresh, energetic, with polished orchard fruit nose, complemented by a light and minerally seam. The palate is certainly vivacious, filled with desiccated fruit, backed up by great acidity, and a fine pétillance. Full, composed, and striking, with a long, fruit-rich finish, this is very impressive.

    "The 2012 Grolleau is a beautiful showing from Clau de Nell, offering bright aromas of black raspberry and black berries followed by fresh violets, minerals and black tea leaf which all come together as this slowly begins to unwind in the glass. This medium-bodied red continues to impress on the palate with lovely focus, balance and vibrant acidity that takes it all the way through the mouthwatering finish. This age worthy Grolleau will need some additional bottle age before it hits full-stride, but that being said there is already so much to like here." INTERNATIONAL WINE REPORT 93 POINTS

    Bretonniere comes from a 3 hectare monopole vineyard in Vouvray. Bretonniere combines remarkable density and richness with vivacity deriving from the wine's minerality and focused acidity. It can be enjoyed young for the accessible fruit - especially if decanted - or aged for many years which will bring out the nuances of a great Chenin Blanc from a top site in Vouvray.

    WINE SPECTATOR 92 POINTS - " Juicy, with good energy in reserve, this has a core of ginger, quince, apple and fig notes that should open up soon enough, backed by a light minerally thread through the finish. Chenin Blanc. Drink now through 2019. 40 cases imported."

    100% Sauvignon Blanc.

    When tasting the wines of Denis Jamain, it is clear that the appellation of Reuilly, in the eastern Loire, is experiencing a renaissance, moving far beyond its former status as the "poor man's Sancerre." This land was once a source of great pride, having been part of a gift of the 7th century king, Dagobert, to the Royal Abbey of Saint Denis. Phylloxera had ravaged the majority of the vineyards here in the late 19th century, but Camille Rousseau (Denis’ maternal grandfather) had faith in the future of Reuilly. In 1935, he planted his first vines here, in addition to farming a large oak forest on the outskirts of town. Denis shares his grandfather's passion for the vineyards and the forest, as well as his hometown pride. Though he studied in the United States and speaks excellent English, this charismatic and friendly gentleman wanted nothing more than to return home to take over the family domaine. In 1990, Denis began adding to the family holdings. Today, he farms a total of seventeen hectares in the heart of the appellation, with eleven planted to Sauvignon Blanc, four planted to Pinot Noir, and two planted to Pinot Gris, which makes his superb and distinctive Reuilly rose.

    The soils here are rich, resting on the prized Kimmeridgian limestone, a geological chain that connects the Loire Valley with Chablis in Burgundy. This limestone is valued for its high content of marine and shell fossils dating back 150 million years ago to the Jurassic period. These minerals are without equal for producing some of the most beautiful whites in France. Denis has been practicing sustainable agriculture for many years and has recently started the conversion process for organic certification. Though he uses both stainless steel tanks and oak, Denis is very proud to be able to select special oaks from his grandfather's forest to make his barrels. This is the concept of "local" in its purest form.
