What's on The Tasting Table today?

Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie Vieilles Vignes Chateau les Fromenteaux 2013 - This unique Muscadet comes from an old vineyard planted on mica schist that is now the property of Pierre’s daughter. First, Muscadet is always dry wine, and has nothing to do with Muscat, which is sometimes sweet. Second, all the important stuff is right on the label: old vines, hand-harvested, and only 12% alcohol. In the glass, this Muscadet has a limpid, pale yellow color. The nose is delicate; not quite elusive, but if you could pin it down it suggests summer seashore air and fresh lime, with lemongrass, green tea, and crushed seashells moving in and out of the background as the wine evolves in the glass. 

Côtes de Gascogne Domaine du Chateau Larroque 2013 - Sixth-generation farmer Pascal Bozzi and his enologist partner Stéphane Beuret bring us the most elegant red wine in all of the Côtes de Gascogne. Glass-coating, super-concentrated, and deep garnet in color, this blend of Tannat, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Syray is elegantly framed by silky, round, fine-grained tannins. Perfect with roast duck breast, beef, and lamb.

 

Côtes du Rhône La Borry Domaine Saint Amant 2014 - Viognier growing on a Mistral-swept terrace at 620 meters, which is the highest vineyard in all the Côtes-du-Rhône. In the glass, the wine has a limpid, delicate yellow-green color, with discreet honeysuckle and white peach aromatics. On the palate, the flavors echo the delicate nose (with the addition of pronounced ripe yellow plums seasoned with fine minerality). The lovely texture is seamless and refined, and the finish is lengthened by delicate bitterness rather than acidity.

Contra Costa County Mataro Spinelli Three Wine Company 2011 -

The Spinelli vineyard was planted by a contemporary of Valerio Jacuzzi, Matt's grandfather. Mataro is another name given to the grape Mourvèdre and many of these old plantings in Contra Costa have disappeared in the rush to urbanization. 

These very old vines in the Spinelli vineyard produce very small yields of intensely-flavored, dark red wine with black fruit aromatics and dusty, fine-grained tannins.
