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.
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.
