What's on The Tasting Table today?

AOP Languedoc Rouge Domaine Magellan 2012 - In the glass, the Domaine Magellan Rouge wine has a dark ruby color, warming to a limpid magenta at the edge. Black cherries, raspberries, lavender, and cassis move in and out of the background, adding cinnamon, fennel, and a fleeting suggestion of roasted chestnuts as the nose evolves in the glass. On the palate, the wine is chewy, yet elegant, with a tightly wound kernel of sweet mineral-infused black and red fruit that echoes the nose, along with ripe olives and sweet baking spices, all fanning out like a peacock’s tail, and gaining weight over time in the glass. Then perfectly integrated, fine-grained tannins punctuate the refreshing lingering finish.

Beaujolais Blanc Domaine Gilles Gelin 2014 -

In 1976, Gérard Gelin purchased the Château des Nugues in Lancié, along with 32 hectares of vineyards in the appellations Morgon, Fleurie, and Beaujolais-Villages. The vines average 45 years of age, with some parcels still in production that are over 100 years old. Today, Domaine Gelin is managed by Gérard’s son Gilles, who has taken the estate to the head of the class in Beaujolais. The nose will blossom gracefully, with ripe Asian pears, blanched almonds, and Alba freesia moving in and out of the background as it evolves in the glass (later there’s a shimmering, sunny suggestion of dried lemon zest and marzipan). Like the best wines of Pouilly-Fuissé and Saint Véran, this Beaujolais-Villages Blanc offers a wonderful balance of substance with freshness. On the palate, the unoaked, limestone infused Chardonnay flavors are sustained by vibrant mouthwatering acidity, and the finish goes on and on.

 

Champagne Blanc de Blancs Diebolt-Vallois NV - There is more human presence in a bottle of wine like this than there is in any mass-market Champagne – no matter how much more expensive, or how prestigious the label. The color is a lovely pale gold, with a streaming bead of tiny precise bubbles. At first, the elegant nose suggests green apples and white flowers. On the palate, the wine is both creamy and firm, with a fine mineral structure, and a feathery, delicate mousse. The flavors evolve with more white flowers, green apples, caraway seeds, minerals, and lemon zest, and the long finish is carried by lively acidity and the velvety, persistent mousse.

Coste della Sesia Rosso Uvaggio Proprietà Sperino 2012 - Today, after more than ten years of arduous work restoring the vineyards and renovating the winery, Paolo and his son Luca (who lives in Lessona and manages the estate) have given new life to Proprietà Sperino, and are now at the vanguard of a renaissance of this historic wine growing area. The wine has a limpid dark garnet color, warming to deep mahogany at the edge. The nose of sweet amarena cherries, pine needles, and dried rose petals is seasoned with a faint suggestion of wild mint and sweet herbs. On the palate, this elegant wine is even finer and more Chambolle-Musigny-like than earlier vintages: polished (and powerful), with deep, mineral-infused red fruit flavors framed in ripe, elegant, fine-grained tannins.
