Featured Wine

 

Below are the December, 2007 Featured Wines for the Wines by Jennifer Wine Club.

 


White Wine


Yvon Mau

Seigneurs de Monbazillac

Monbazillac 2005


Yvon Mau  Seigneurs de Monbazillac 2005The Yvon Mau wine-trading company was founded in Bordeaux's Gironde sur Dropt in 1897.

Around the turn of the century, the son of the founder, Yvon, could often be found riding around the Entre-Deux-Mers region on his bicycle searching for new wines. Thus was born the “Bordeaux discoverer." A few years later, the company adopted his name to serve as its identity and placed his silhouette on a penny farthing for its emblem.

The company has since grown to become one of the major players in Bordeaux wines, while remaining true to the roots of its region and village of origin.

Seigneurs de Monbazillac is a delightful blend of the traditional Bordeaux white grapes: 30% Sauvignon Blanc, 60% Semillon, and 10% Muscadelle. It shows honeyed fruits and soft, nutty flavors leading to a finish that is long and enduring. This wine is wonderful as an aperitif, or pair it with well-aged cheeses or light, fruit-based desserts.

The wine is made using grapes with "noble rot," all of which are hand-picked and -sorted. The must is racked in cold conditions, with fermentation occurring at a higher, controlled temperature until the right sugar/alcohol balance is achieved. The fermentation is then stopped by sudden cooling, followed by filtration and sulphiting.

Red Wine

Chateau Peyredon Lagravette

Listrac-Medoc 2004

 

Chateau Peyredon LagravettePaul Hostein is the current proprietor of the domaine that dates back to 1546 and is described by famed wine critic Clive Coates as one of the best in the Listrac-Medoc appellation.

Hostein eschews mechanical harvesting and prefers a more organic method of winemaking. The vines are densely planted with more than 9000 per hectare, very unusual for this part of Bordeaux.

The wine is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon and 45% Merlot and spent 18 months aging in barrel with 30% new oak and no filtration.

Enticing aromas of spice and oak lead to a great balance of fruit and oak on the palate. Cassis blends nicely with the bright berry flavors and leaves with the fruit notes dominating the finish. The complexity of fruits will help it pair well with elegant complex sauces.
