What's on The Tasting Table today?

Côtes du Roussillon l'Effet Papillon Blanc Les Vignes de l'Aire 2014 -

Without a doubt, this is the finest white “Effet Papillon” to date, and the first to be estate bottled by Marjorie and Stèphane Gallet. Here the Grenache Blanc has picked up a freshness and minerality unlike previous vintages. The fruit is focused, with lots of extract, and the mouthfeel is full and at the same time “weightless.” Delicious!

Lubéron Cuvée le Châtaignier Rosé Domaine de la Citadelle 2014 - Natural farming (no chemical fertilizers or herbicides), low yields, and strict selection of fruit at harvest have helped create elegant versions of the typical wines from this neglected appellation. In the glass, the wine has a limpid, pale pink color. The nose opens discreetly with wild strawberries, fresh white flowers, herbes de Provence, and the cinnamon-like side of fresh green perilla. On the palate, the wine is full bodied and concentrated, with red cherries and persimmon joining the wild strawberries and red currants; all seasoned with fresh acidity and mouthfilling saline minerality.

Steeger St. Jost Großes Gewächs Riesling Trocken Weingut Ratzenberger 2008 - The St. Jost vineyard in the small village of Steeg, is part of the steep slope referred to as the "Altar of Bacchus" by the Romans, who planted vineyards there in the first century B.C. The vineyard produces wine of amazing aromatic and textural complexity rivaled only by the Premier, and Grand Cru of Burgundy.

Dolcetto di Dogliani Sori' dij But Anna Maria Abbona 2013 - Anna Maria Abbona leads the elite of Dogliani, producing four different Dolcettos, of which the “Sori dij But” is the classic expression of Dogliani. In the glass, the wine has a deep garnet color, with dark plums, ripe blueberries, crushed violets, and fresh hay in the nose. On the palate, the wine unfurls with rich warm black fruit and exotic tea, framed by soft, silky round tannins and fine minerality that cleanses the palate. The flavors persist through a long clean finish.
