What's on The Tasting Table today?

Touraine Les Trois Chênes Domaine Ricard 2013 -

Cuvée les Trois Chênes comes from a parcel of Sauvignon Blanc that was planted by Vincent’s grandfather in 1947, on a south-facing slope of sand and flint. The winemaking is pure Didier Dagueneau: fermentation for twelve weeks in a mix of new and used barriques, and aging on the lees with frequent batonnage for eight more months. The wood contributes texture, but nothing to distract from the ripe nectarine, boxwood, sweet baking spices, and wet stone aromatics, and is completely integrated with the Asian pear, bitter honey, and ripe citrus on the palate.

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.

Rasteau Xavier Vignon 2012 -

The Rasteau is a rich, full-bodied red wine with terrific concentration, and a silky texture. A small portion of this wine was aged in fûts neuf (new barrels), which add a touch of toast to the nose. Produced from Grenach, Syrah, and Mourvèdre grown in a variety of vineyard soils.
