  • 1749 2015 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!

    Item #: 311003

    From 100% hand-harvested Chenin Blanc, organically grown on the stony clay over schist hillsides of Saint-Aubin-de-Luigné in Anjou's Layon Valley. Unlike Thierry Germain's vineyards in Saumur, where limestone dominates, the vineyards of western Anjou are influenced by the schistous, volcanic soils of the Armorican Massif. It's this type of rock that imparts a pungent, stony bite to the dry Chenin of this region. This handy value example was vinified in 2 to 4 year old 400-litre casks, and delivers a crunchy, racy wine with fresh apple, pear skin and smoky notes. It's tightly wound, fresh and pure and very smashable. Plenty of energy, refreshment and value on offer here.

    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.

    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.

    "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

    Domaine de la Chanteleuserie means “place where the larks sing,” hence the singing bird on the front. The domaine is perched on a limestone plateau in an idyllic landscape in the heart of Touraine. The vineyards enjoy full southern exposure helping to ripen the Cabernet Franc grapes. This is the land of Cabernet Franc, better known locally as “Breton.” Though it’s known often as a blending grape in Bordeaux, it has the ability to shine nicely on it’s own in the Loire.

    The wines reveal consistency and density. High acidities are subtle on the palate as they are balanced by the grapes’ natural richness. Pouilly Fumé 2014 reveal promising aromas. The finesse and complexity shows fruits (pear, peach, exotic fruits), hints of herbaceous aromas and delicate mineral notes. Wines exhibit a fine tension counterbalanced by a rich mouthful of fullness and richness. With a long finish, Pouilly Fumé 2014 have real potential.

    One look told us this was unlike any Loire Valley Cabernet Franc we've ever had. The depth of color is noticeably pronounced. Sourced from 50-90 year old vines with very low yields of 3/4 ton per acre. Warm stony soils which absorb and reflect heat back to the vines helping to ripen the grapes. 18 months in used oak barrels. The best Cabernet Franc we have ever had from the Loire Valley.

    Medium purple with brilliant ruby reflections and staining of the tears. Very expressive on the nose with violet florals, red fruit, sage, coastal scrub, earth and forest floor. On the palate, this wine is dry and full-bodied with medium plus acidity and silky integrated tannins. The fruit is plush and with ripe flavors of cherry, red plum and red currants along with sage and forest floor. Gorgeous mouthfeel, tremendous depth of fruit and an amazingly long finish.

    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."
