The wines of Chasse-Spleen come from Moulis-en-Medoc, a small village to the north-west of Margaux. Like Margaux, the soil content has a large amount of gravel, but uniquely Moulis hosts underlying layers of clay and limestone. Chateau Chasse Spleen is the most well known of the producers in this village, producing Bordeaux blends with high portions of Cabernet Sauvignon.
In the past ten or so years, the wines of Jean-Marie Fourrier have gone from one of the best-kept secrets in Burgundy to one of the best-known quantities. These are wines of almost heartbreaking delicacy, brimming with fragile pure red fruit and spice. The viticulture here is first rate and the use of new oak is fabulously restrained, notable in a village where it is often applied lavishly. "Aux Réas" sits just south of the village of Vosne Romanée itself, adjacent to the 1er Cru "Clos des Réas." In an appellation that produces perhaps the most coveted and expensive wines in the region, this is an astonishing value.
Aromatically this showed very tight in June, but it was fabulous on the palate — complex red fruit and terroir, very ripe tannin and beautiful acidity, amazing length. A delicious and most refined wine. JW
A great vintage for our "house" Champagne producer. We love Chartogne-Taillet for it's verve, freshness, balance and style, and the 02 has all that with the complexity and seriousness of a great vintage — for an incredible price.
Olivier Collin's "Les Maillons" bottling is an arresting and unique bottle of wine. Unlike Collin's other single vineyard wines, which come from close to his winery in Congy, Les Maillons is half an hour away by car, and these 40+ year old vines are planted on dark, clay rich soil. As always with Collin's Champagnes, the grapes are harvested at low yields and very ripe, resulting in a rich, complex finished product that is packed with intense, stony flavors. Les Maillons is faintly pink in the glass, and offers vivid red fruit aromas of sour cherry, red currant, and cranberry. The wine is unapologetically dry on the palate and fleshes out with time open. Don't serve it too cold! -Sophie Barrett
From the marvelous father/son team Bernard and Matthieu Baudry comes this beatiful Chinon from the difficult 2013 vintage. The wine comes from parcels in Saint-Louans on clay/limestone and in 2013 it contains much of the juice from les Grezeaux, the Baudry's great gravel-based parcel in Cravant. The aromas are bright and earthy with raspberry/strawberry fruit and hints of citrus, fresh herbs and pepper. The palate is fairly light with raspberry, earth, licorice and herbal notes backed with bright acidity. Serve quite cool with pork, chicken, charcuterie and mild cheeses or with a fish in sauce. This will be an interesting mature wine with 5 to 8 years of cellaring...
This is a beautiful Demi-Sec with lovely exotic fruit aromas, creamy lemon and stone on the palate backed up with great chalky acidity. Highly recommended.
*This wine is in the warehouse and will not be available for pick-up or delivery until after Labor Day.2008 is a great vintage for moelleux and demi-sec Vouvray as the high acidity of the vintage gives fabulous brightness and balance to the extra sweetness. The Huet 2008 Haut-Lieu is superb now with terrines, foie gras, vegetable soups, mild cheeses and much more - and don't hesitate to age ten more years.
