2015 Domaine Langlois Chateau Sancerre

In Sauvignon Blanc on February 23, 2017 at 12:05 pm


Sancerre is a region on the far inland side of the Loire Valley, up from Nantes, past Vouvray and Saumur and nearly into the heart of France.  And it is this place – a set of steep slopes of Kimmeridgean Marl soils – that produces a wine like no other.  Our example is the producer Langlois Chateau Sancerre.

The first sensations are of mango and papaya followed by fresh ginger, hints of Kaffir lime leaf and raita layered across the nose.  The soil is completely Kimmeridgean Marl, a fossilized sea-life chalk that imparts a grandly stated aromatic complexity of green poivre, wildflower aromas of asperge des bois, bluebells and Moutarde noire.  Texture rules this palate: a chiseled, finely etched chalk, drying the mouth, yet with citrus-inspired aromas mingling in candied lemons, poached white fruits, and a lingering lift of pepper.  Please contact us for pricing and availability: sommelier@waterfordwine.com or 414-289-9463.

Is any wine “bigger” than an Australian Shiraz?  Doubtful.

But Australia is a continent, not just a small community, and Syrah is grown worldwide.  The grape offers a fantastic diversity of flavors and tastes, all the while remaining one of the most majestic wines in the world.

Sadly, most people do not gravitate to Shiraz in their drinking pleasure.  The solution?  To taste as many Syrahs as possible in order to convert the world to how amazing these wines can be.

2015 d’Ourea Tire Bouchon Cotes du Rhone

In Cote du Rhone, Uncategorized on February 23, 2017 at 12:01 pm

doureaCork Puller (Tire Bouchon) is a great name for this fun Cotes du Rhone that is just darn easy to crank open and throw back.  Bright cherry fruit aromas come straight out of the glass mixed with black pepper, healing touches of spice, seek blackberries and hints of herbes de Provence.  The palate is full-bodied, doctor yet also has zip and verve – the perfect kinda red wine for roasted lamb with garlic aioli, or grilled tuna with a sun-dried tomato salsa, or even just slightly chilled alongside a thick-cut bacon, avocado and tomato sandwich. The finish is smooth and supple, and ends with a fruit-driven minerality. You’ll want to guzzle it down just as much as I do.
