Boislauzon 2018 Chateauneuf du Pape Chaussy Selection

The 2018 Mas de Boislauzon Famille Chaussy Selection: "It’s led by the Grenache and its ripeness. The palate gives a classic Grenache outing of sweet plum fruit with a nudge of spice, develops tannins with fire, intent, cut, power. It shows good garrigue virtues, herbs and gorse flowers, attitude, as it finishes. It’s Châteauneuf of terroir which needs at least four years to quieten the tannins." DrinkRhone 2019

Chidaine, François 2019 Montlouis Sur Loire Les Bournais

(Wine arrives Jan 25) This is usually our favorite wine from François and Manuela Chidaine, long-time champions of organic and biodynamic farming in the Loire Valley. Named after the soil type "Les Bournais," a unique clay topsoil over limestone (tuffeau blanche) also found across the river in Vouvray and without the silex present in most Montlouis terroirs. First made in a sec-tendre style, recent vintages have been dry, with the 2019 showing perfect balance  at 2.6 g/L RS, 13% alc and 4.51 g/L total acidity. The 2019 shows the wine's normal astonishing aromatic complexity with hints of red fruits (raspberry), lime flower, pineapple, lemon zest, stone, white peach and almond. The palate is very elegant and a bit austere in it's youth, showing firm acidity with earth and mineral flavors predominant over white fruits, bitter lemon, almond and stone. Very long and very bright citrus and mineral finish. This is a beautiful Montlouis that will  pair with mildly flavored fish, ceviche and goat cheeses in it's youth, with age serve with lobster, white meats and fish in sauce, Asian foods.... It's delicious now, and should be very interesting after ten to fifteen years in the cellar. Highly recommended.  ($41.39 0n case or mixed case purchase) David Lillie

Gilles, Guillaume 2012 Cornas Chaillot

While working for Robert Michel, Guillaume Gilles began with one-half hectare inherited from his grandfather in 2002 and then took over the 1.5 hectares of Robert Michel on Chaillot in 2007. As at Lionnet, the soils are worked by tractor and by hand without herbicides. Fermentations are whole-cluster with wild yeasts and last three weeks or more, at relatively low temperature due to the cold cellar. Minimal pumping over, manual cap punching, aged in 4 to 14-year-old 400 and 600-liter casks.Guillaume is fortunate to have superb terroir in the heart of Chaillot, with soils both of decomposed granite and of clay/limestone, giving a unique purity and saline minerality to his wines. The 2012 Gilles Cornas shows bright aromas of red currant, blackberry and blueberry fruit, floral and elegant with stone and musk. The high-toned aromas contrast with dense black fruits on the palate, surprisingly deep and ripe with a bit more alcohol than normal for this wine. Firm acidity and elegant tannins frame the long finish with minerals and bright fruits lingering on the palate. This is an excellent Cornas combining brightness and power, and built to age, best perhaps 2023 to 2030.
