White Wine

2008 Barons de Rothschild (Lafite)

"Val de l'Ours" Chardonnay

Vin de Pays d'Oc

Languedoc, France

 

Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) With its exceptional location and terroir, the Château d’Aussières has been one of the great estates of the Languedoc since the Roman era. In 1999, Domaines Barons de Rothschild (Lafite) began to revitalize the vineyards on the 1,359 acre estate, and now bring their legendary touch to this mythical Languedoc region in creating Val de l'Ours (Valley of the Bear).

DBR planted Chardonnay at Aussieres because it is particularly cold (the coldest valley in the Languedoc), which produces an atypical style for a Languedoc white - very light, fresh & interesting.

Ninety percent of the must was vinified in stainless steel vats and 10% in barrel to provide complexity, with four months aging in stainless steel vats and barrels, producing a wine with a beautiful bright color. The nose this year is particularly fruity with very harmonious notes of citrus and exotic fruits. Delicate attack in the mouth rapidly followed by a sensation of freshness. The wine presents good body and perfect balance between acidity and smoothness. The finish is balanced and elegant and makes this wine suitable for all occasions - as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a first course or seafood course.

Bodegas San Isidro

Gémina Monastrell 2007

Jumilla, Spain

 

Gemina MonastrellThe Jumilla Designation of Origin (D.O. Vinos de Jumilla) was created in 1966. The wines are carefully prepared in its seven towns located in the southeast of Spain. Today the town of Jumilla, previously known as Gémina, is the hub of the D.O., with 50% of the wine industry and almost all of the area’s bottling plants.

A late phylloxera attack in 1989 led to a fresh start throughout Jumilla: the vineyards were replanted to produce lighter but still fruity red, white and rosé wines made from native grape varieties, particularly Monastrell. Because of its ability to endure the cold winters and hot, dry summers, Monastrell has become Jumilla's signature red grape, representing a full 80% of plantings.

The 2007 Gémina Monastrell is produced with very old Monastrell pre-phylloxera vines harvested at their optimum point of maturity, and is aged three months in American and French new oak barrels. The result is a wine of dark ruby color, with a bouquet of cedar, mineral, plum, and blueberry. Forward and sweet on the palate, the wine has structure, ripe blue fruit flavors, and a lengthy, pure finish.

Enjoy now through 2014.

D.O. Jumilla
