2017 MAISON IDIART TOURAINE SAUVIGNON BLANC "750ML"
2017 MAISON IDIART TOURAINE SAUVIGNON BLANC "750ML"
Bottle Price $14.99

Summer Sipper. As Good As Sancerre At Half The Price.

I met Nicolas Idiart many years ago. He is one of the most passionate lovers of great wine that I know. His knowledge and his experience are superb. He is a third generation wine maker. Both his father and Grandfather made wine in Bordeaux which is where he is from. He studied Winemaking a the prestigious wine school, the University of Bordeaux at graduated at the extremely young age of 19. He then worked for one of the most famous Bordeaux negociants spending many years in the US and has a great understanding of our palates. His passion was always to make great wine. He had a look at Bordeaux and the amount of money it would have costed him to buy the correct vineyards to make great wine was prohibitive and quality to Nicolas was the most important thing. He settled on the Loire valley, a vineyard in the Touraine where he had the terroir to make world class Sauvignon Blanc.

I have managed to secure 100 cases of his incredible 2016 Maison Idiart Touraine Sauvignon Blanc to offer for the summer months. To make this Sauvignon blanc he joint force with Frdric Vron who owned the famous Domaine Vron in the Touraine appellation. Now if you love Sancerre like I do you have to taste this wine. The Loire is famous for its great Sauvignon Blancs in particular those coming from the Sancerre. As the popularity of Sancerre has increased so have prices. Quality Sancerre is all between $25 and $35 a bottle for the 2016 vintage. Today's wine is $14.99 and it blows away these same Sancerre. If I could blind taste on these wines I guarantee you would not be able to tell the difference. The smart money and the insiders know that Touraine Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire is the way to go.

TASTING NOTES: The wine displays an array of aromas lime and lemongrass, apricot argume fruits and Passion fruit. Alive and fresh on the palate with excellent ripe fruit. It has superb crystalline acidity that makes Loire Valley Sauv Blancs so good balanced by the richness of the superb 2016 vintage

2017 BRIZIARELLI GRECHETTO IGT "750ML"
Bottle Price $15.99

Crisp; Fresh and Dry

Wonderfully fresh. Pale yellow with greenish hues. The wine opens up with aromas pear, hazelnut, elderberry and hawthorn. A crowd pleaser that has great drinkability. The estate is owned by the Briziarelli family, founded in 1906 by the patron of Pio Briziarelli (1878-1966). The winery was started in 2002 by Pio Briziarelli, a innovative businessman who is a leader in the bricks industry and decided to expand into wine.

Bordering on Tuscany and right above Rome is the lesser-known and lesser-traveled region of Umbria. It’s here where you’ll find some of the most amazing, delightfully undervalued Italian wines – from the crisp, dry white wines of Grechetto to the deep colored, antioxidant-rich reds of Sagrantino.

Sourced from Mendoza’s high altitude Uco Valley and showcases the cool climate style of Malbec. Rich, opulently textured, dark fruits, floral aromatics with a supple, fresh finish.

Valle de Uco is one of the sweet spots in Mendoza

The 2013 vintage for us was a great year as all our vineyards enjoyed excellent weather conditions and escaped from suffering any pest, hail storm, extremely hot days, etc. These conditions meant that our Allamand Valle de Uco Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 shows more fresh fruit, optimum maturity, and more complexity than our previous years. In the mouth the wine is more serious than the previous vintage

showing more body, structure, and power in the palate.

Perfumed peach stone fruits, green pear, quince, and lovely complex struck match flinty notes. Subtle smoky depth, pineapple, jasmine and supple soft texture. Very elegant with ultra-fine musk and spiced apple richness. Wow, what a wine. True marriage of classism and precision. 55% Chenin Blanc, 20% Sémillon, 25% Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Note: The wine is limpid pale gold in color, with initial aromatic impressions of pear and stone fruit followed by notes of lanolin, lime leaf, citrus peel and smoke on the nose. These lead into a very refined palate of pears, peaches and apricots, with further flavors of lanolin, white pepper, allspice and integrated vanilla. A clean, precise line of citrus underscores the whole in a texture that shows breadth and body without heaviness. The finish is long and succulent, punctuated by vibrant, high toned acidity.

40% Touriga Franca; 40% Tinta Roriz; 20% Tinta Cao.

This is a beautiful Sino, rather full in the mouth for this level, soft and caressing on the palate and simply bursting with flavor. There is not a lot of mid-palate concentration, despite the full-bodied initial feel, but the juicy finish is laced with sweet fruit and it is quite delicious. There are ripe tannins for support. The wine has a fresh, bright feel that should make it easily approachable, but it may improve further over the next year, too. It is impeccably balanced and quiet lovely for mid-term consumption.

The wine is a classic Douro blend dominated by Touriga Franca, giving a rich, soft and juicy character that is ready to drink. It has great fruit, spice and integrated tannins.

Fresh and elegant with very seductive balanced fruit and soft approachable tannins. This is a wine that expresses the wild beauty of its Douro Origins.

2015 CASTELLARI BERGAGLIO "FORNACI" GAVI "750ML"
2015 CASTELLARI BERGAGLIO "FORNACI" GAVI "750ML"
Bottle Price $21.99
Sale Price $19.99

Great White Buy! The Noble White Wine Of Piedmont

Gavi, is a wine that takes its name from the region’s main village. The village of Gavi, is in southern Piedmont, bordering Liguria, and the wine is made from the Cortese grape. Although Cortese is grown all over the northwest, it was first recorded as a Piedmontese variety in 1659.

Founded in 1890, Castellari Bergaglio is a family-run winery that Gambero Rosso hails as “one of the appellation’s principal reference points”. Fourth generation Marco Castellari Bergaglio best describes the family philosophy: “We wish to craft wines that reflect terroir, not stereotype.”

They focus on making the finest Gavi and do not make red wines.

At 984 feet above sea level, we find the estate of Castellari Bergaglio, totaling 12 hectares under vine. Gavi di Tassarolo Fornaci is a single vineyard wine named after a brick oven – fornace in Italian – that used to stand in place of the vineyards, within the township of Tassarolo. Winemaker is the very talented Roberto Gerbino who consults all over Italy.

The grapes are transferred to the cellar immediately and undergo soft pressing to extract the very best from the fruit. Fermentation takes place slowly at a controlled temperature (18-20°C, to maintain the typically rich aromas of the Cortese di Gavi varietal) and lasts for up to 20 days.

Tasting notes: Those looking for an intriguing Gavi with great finesse and ideal balance can do no better that Fornaci with its Floral nuance of hawthorn and lily complement fruiter notes of banana, followed by subtly pungent citrus, hay, and mint. In the mouth it is compact, spherical, and harmonious, very much in line with the bouquet, and it concludes with a lengthy, cleanly-delineated finish.
