What's on The Tasting Table today?
Bourgogne Pinot Noir Domaine des Terres de Velle 2013
- Dried cherries, tea roses, and wild strawberries distinguish this Pinot Noir (some of which is from a forty-year-old parcel in Montpoulains) from Sophie and Fabrice Laronze. Exotic, ageable Bourgogne!
Mâcon-Solutré Domaine Jean-Pierre Sève 2014
Jean-Pierre Sève represents the fourth generation of his family to grow Chardonnay on this seven-hectare estate in Solutré-Pouilly. But Jean-Pierre is the first to draw the attention of the Michelin stars. With its notes ofAsian pears, dried honey, and a fleeting suggestion of toasted barley, seasoned with mouth watering, saline minerality, the overall impression of the wine is one of shimmering, stony energy.
Indicazione Geografica Tipica Toscana Trittico Poggio Al Sole 2012
Trittico is the “baby Super Tuscan” that Giovanni had in mind when he stopped production of “Seraselva” in 2005. The wine is made from Sangiovese (70%), with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot in equal parts making up the balance.
Rheinhessen Riesling Trocken Weingut Keller 2014
This dry Riesling is generous, pure, and complex, with ripe white peach, green apple, and citrus flavors unfolding with vibrant limestone mineral intensity, and the finish is long and refreshing, with plenty of fresh acidity, depth, and cut. This is flat-out great wine: worthy accompaniment to the most elegant seafood, and one of the happiest non-Burgundy accompaniments to a simple roasted chicken that I have ever experienced.
