Domaine Faillenc St. Marie: The vineyard supplying this wine was built on top of the remains of a Roman winery in Domaine Faillenc, in the Corbieres district of Languedoc. On small property with only eigth hectares of vineyards on extremely dry terrain. The terroir is composed of inhospitable, rocky limestone terraces. Only vines, olive trees and some scraggly brush survive under these harsh conditions. As a result, yields are naturally low. The grapes are strongly marked by their environment and this powerful character shows through in the wines. This white is named “Pas des Louvres,” meaning “path of the she-wolves.” Varietals include a blend of Roussanne, Macabeu, Bourboulenc, and Clairette. During fermentation, the varietals are pressed and vinified together to create extra body and complexity.
Chateau Soucherie Anjou Rouge: The vines used for this wine are up to 40 years old over gravely soil. This blend is about 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Grolleau and both will go under cold maceration before the Cab Franc ferments for 20 days and the Grolleau ferments for 10. Then this wine ages for nine months on tees without extraction. The minerality and graphite expression of the soil translates through the wine and it ends up being more intense with aspects of menthol, licorice, and some brighter black currant. This bottle is full bodied with a slightly sappy structure and a good longevity to its tannin.
Morey Saint Denis Clos des Ormes: This beautiful premier cru (100% pinot noir) is a Louis Jadot and hails from the northern region of Morey Saint Denis in Burgundy. The name “Clos des Ormes” is used to show respect to the elm trees that heralded the vineyard area long ago. The region itself focuses on presenting 5 Grand Crus, and 17 Premier Crus. The vines grow from soil that is well drained but heavier in clay and chalk. This wine has a deep purple color with just as full flavor, but a very silky texture that can be detected in all pinot noirs. Hints of brown spice and cola, and attracts the drinker with dark berry notes.
Cobetckoe Myckathoe Soviet Sparkling: This Soviet style sparkling wine, actually hailing from Lithuania, will have a zipping acidity and a clean, minerally finish. The varietal blend is a cross between Aligote and Chardonnay offering dryness and structure. This blend will offer noticeable acidity in its light body with notes of green plum, pear, and honeysuckle. A delightful pair with dessert to bid adieu to another beautiful evening!
