Friday Feature 10/03/14: 2012 Releases from Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

Hello and Happy Friday!

 

We are back this Friday with another great Burgundy offer, this time from super-producer Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey. These are not to be missed Burgundies, and if you blink they will be gone. Many of you are familiar with this producer, and also familiar with the challenging weather that 2012 brought to the Burgundy region. There isn’t much, so let your intentions be known sooner rather than later.

 

PLEASE NOTE – The wine is due to arrive in our store the week of October 6th.

 

Have a great week-end!

 

Cheers,

 

Craig & Sheb

About Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey

 

Pierre-Yves Colin has garnished a lot of attention in the Cotes de Beaune, and the excitement surrounding his wines is palatable. His name is beginning to be uttered in the same hushed breaths as Roulot, Coche & Lafon. In 2005 he split from his family’s domaine (he is the eldest son of Marc Colin) taking with him his 6ha inheritance.

 

This is our third allocation of these wines: we can say definitively that they have been discovered and are now often housed in the cellars of the wealthiest collectors. We seem to be getting less and less. Part of this is the drastically reduced production in challenging vintages like 2013. The other reason is that Pierre-Yves is now a full-fledges rock star of his region, and his wines are in great demand.

ancegniere

2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet ‘Ancégnières’

 

Les Enseignères lays underneath the Grand Cru of Bâtard-Montrachet on both the Puligny & Chassagne sides. Pierre Yves has taken a more ancient spelling of the vineyard (starting with the letter ‘A’). Given the current pricing and proximity of the vineyard to Bâtard, this certainly may be one of last great deals in Burgundy.

 

$73.00/BTL.

6 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

videbourses
2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet “Vide Bourses 1er Cru”

 

A stony vineyard next to Bâtard, this is parcel comes from the Morey side of the family. Structured and mineral driven.

 

$110.00/BTL.

6 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

 

===

chenevottes
2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet “Chenevottes 1er Cru”

 

Chenevottes sits at the southern border of St. Aubin and is a relatively cool site that harbors two distinct lieux dits: Les Commes & Les Bondues. Pierre-Yves draws from both vineyards in his bottling. There is a lovely dichotomy at play here; a lacy dignity coupled with subtle power.

 

$105.00/ BTL.
18 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

===

enbrazees

2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet “Embrazées 1er Cru”

 

The 1er Cru of Embrazées is owned nearly in its entirety, by the Morey family, so this wine is part of the inheritance that Caroline Morey, Pierre-Yves’ wife, brings to the family. This vineyard makes a rich and more lush style of Chassagne.

 

$105.00/ BTL.
6 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

 

===

baudines

2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Chassagne-Montrachet “Les Baudines 1er Cru”

 

Also part of the Morey family legacy, Les Baudines sits on top of Embrazées, and both vineyards border Santenay in the northwestern corner. The soils here are white clay, and Les Baudines produces a taut, sleek style of white Burgundy well- suited to the Colin-Morey style.

 

$101.00/BTL.

6 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

 

===

centenaiires

2012 Pierre-Yves Colin-Morey Santenay Rouge ‘Ceps Centenaires’

 

In the lieux dit of Les Champs Claude, there is a particular section of vines that were planted in 1900, thus the ‘Ceps Centenaires’ (century vines) designation. Pierre Yves owns .3 ha of this old vines parcel. We have not had a Santenay produced at this level of quality before.

Friday Feature 09/26/14 : The New 6 for $60-Something Sampler

Hello and Happy Friday!
 
In Perman Wine News, we are in the process of finalizing some very cool wine-maker events, and special dinners, which we will announce on this newsletter. Many of you ask about tastings and how to learn more about wine. Talking directly to the farmers and the artisans who make wine is the single best way to this greater knowledge, so stay tuned.
===

 

It is the last Friday of the month, and that means time to unveil another Six for $60-Something sampler!

 

The 6 for $60-Something is Chicago (and the planet’s) best monthly value wine sampler!

 

This month’s sampler is comprised of some very satisfying, more autumnally focused wines. We return again to some blustery reds, a couple of whites, and bid adieu to the summer of rosé. However, diehard rosé fans should not despair: we always keep a few on hand even in the dead of winter.

 

All of these selections are available by the bottle and the case, but there is no better way to learn wine than by trying a variety of new wines.

 

If interested in a sampler, simply stop by the store, or send us an email and we can coordinate delivery or shipping.

6 for $60-Something Sampler
luccarelli
2013 Luccarelli Primitivo-Puglia, Italy
The Southern Italian region of Puglia, in the heel of the boot, produces quite a bit of wine from a variety of grapes, some local and some international.

 

One of the most delicious and easy to drink varieties of the region is called Primitivo.  A couple examples of this grape have made samplers in the past, but it has been a while and we were taken with the quality of this particular producer.

 

The most famous sites for growing Primitivo are in Manduria, but a risk exists in the making of this wine. Ripeness is important, but in the warm, flat terrain of this area the grapes can easily over-ripen, producing blousy, less interesting wines. For this bottling, some of the sites are harvested early, resulting in a bold juicy wine imbued with good aromatic and structural freshness.

 

The result is one of the most delicious bottles of wine you are going to find from the Primitivo varietal.  Incredibly fresh and vibrant with notes of ripe blackberry, strawberry, spice and herbs.  This is texturally plush and glides across the palate. This is a real crowd pleaser!
$13.00 BTL. / $156.00 CASE OF 12

saimabranco
2013 Casa de Saima Branco, Bairrada, Portugal

 

You regular Six for $60-Something’ers are going to recognize the name Casa de Saima.  Last month we featured the delicious Rosé from Saima, this month their fantastic white, and next month, their great red wine.

 

This wine is easily the best value white wine in my store!

 

For those of us, and I’ll include myself, still learning about Portuguese wine, the Bairrada region is well-known for producing sparkling and great red wine.  Maybe less known is its ability to make fantastic white wine from grapes like Bical and Maria Gomes (a.k.a Fernão Pires).  Some of the best Portuguese white wines I’ve tasted come from the Bairrada.

 

On my recent trip to Portugal, I was visiting Casa de Saima and winemaker / owner Graça Miranda, opened a bottle of 1995 Branco to show us the evolution of their wines.  It wasn’t just fantastic, it was world-class, and I was truly shocked at its ability to evolve in such an elegant and complex way.

 

The 2013 is a real stunner, easily one of the best white wines I have ever put on my sampler.  It is a blend of 70% Bical and 30% Maria Gomes.  Vinification has changed since that 1995 vintage which was crushed in traditional granitic open top tanks called lagares.  Now this is fermented and aged only in stainless steel tanks.

 

The nose on this wine is exotic, white flowers, bergamot, a hit of herbs and mineral.  Texturally this has nice richness, but then the finish absolutely expands and carries on for a very long time.  This is almost impossible to believe that it costs only $12.  I stupidly ordered 120 bottles for this sampler which will be gone by months end.  That mistake won’t happen again.

 

Please do not miss this great representation of a Bairrada white!

 

$12.00 BTL. / $72.00 SIX-PACK CASE

 rocdesegur2012 Château Roc de Segur Bordeaux-Libournais, France

 

The Bordelaise are very quick to pronounce nearly every harvest as the “vintage of the century”, but this type of bombastic proclamation was nearly impossible in 2012. The good news is, the difficult conditions and late ripening tendencies of the vintage heavily favored Merlot, and so the right bank did not suffer too much.

 

Château Roc de Segur is an annual best-buy here at Perman Wine Selections. Owned by the Vidal family, the vineyards located in the Entre-Deux-Mers area were replanted in 1990.  We are starting to really see the fruits of their labor.

 

This is truly a great Bordeaux value.  A blend of 65% Merlot,  27% Cabernet Sauvignon and 8% Cabernet Franc, from vines planted on clay-limestone soil. Vinification takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks, where it is then aged.

 

What you get is a bright, fruit-forward, mineral-driven red. It drinks like a classic bottle of claret, so for a minute you can pretend you’re French, steak frites, knotted scarf and all.

 

$10.00/BTL.- $120.00 CASE OF 12

bomfim

2011 Vale do Bomfim Tinto-Douro, Portugal

 

It seems that once we opened our hearts and minds to the wonder that is Portugal, we have been flooded with great wines at every price point. The quality that we are seeing from these producers is crazy high, and this wine is no exception.

 

The grapes for Vale de Bomfim comes from severalquints (single vineyards) whose main purpose is to supply fruit for Dow’s port production. However, the Symington Family who own Dow, historically  have made a red still wine for their own personal consumption. This wine was delicious enough that visitors and friends of the family repeatedly asked to purchase the wine, and the family decided to release the wine commercially.

 

The wine is composed of a typically Portuguese mixed bag: 30% Tinta Barroca, 25% Touriga Nacional, 25% Touriga Franca, 15% Tinta Roriz and 5% Tinto Cão. It was the structure and body that impressed us, because usually at this price point even the wines of the noble Duouro can be soft and fleshy. However, the Vale do Bomfim is surprisingly full-bodied and intense.

 

$10.00/BTL.-$120.00/CASE OF 12

nadler

2012 Nadler Grüner Veltliner- Carnuntum, Austria

 

There is something about Grüner, especially as we change from summer to fall, that is uniquely satisfying with it’s crisp, slightly green flavors and laser-like edges. Grüner is made for those that enjoy piquancy and vibrancy. And while many of us turn to richer reds this time of year, it is important to remember that Grüner can pair excellently with fall’s richer foods, and has a special affinity for exotic spices.

 

Young Robert Nadler’s vines are in Cartuntum, an ancient Roman stronghold. This is south of the great city of Vienna, along the Danube River near the Hungarian border on the western edge of the Pannonian Basin, a geological plain with a warmer macro-climate, despite it’s northerly altitude.

 

This is fresh, mineral driven and delicious. Stick a couple in your fridge and braise away!

 

$12.00/BTL.-$144.00/CASE OF 12

mascristine

2010 Mas Cristine Côtes du Roussillon, France

Mas Cristine is an estate located in Banyuls, 5 miles from the Spanish border and 1/2 a mile from the Southern Mediterranean coast. Vines were first planted here in 1810, and the estate is steeped in antiquity, although the winery itself is modern.

 

We bought a stack of this last spring, and got a very good price on it. Many of you absolutely loved the wine, so we checked with the distributor and were able to negotiate the same price for October’s 6 for $60 -Something Sampler.

 

Composed of Grenache and Syrah, this is a rich, brooding red with palate presence and serious body. If you like them bold and spicy, this is for you!

 

$12.00 BTL. / $144.00 CASE OF 12

Friday Feature 09/19/14: The New 6 For $120-Something Sampler

Hello and Happy Friday!

It is is that time again, the second to last Friday of the month, when we introduce our latest Six for $120-Something Sampler.

 

This month’s box contains a couple of great selections from our continuing bromance with Portugal, an affordable Burgundy, a Cabernet from Paso Robles, and more, all ready for your drinking pleasure.

 

Keep in mind that while you are welcome to choose some of the wine à la carte, but as completionists, we say you should just do the whole sampler, you can drink it this month if you really try! We know you can do it.

faiveley

2011 Maison Faiveley Bourgogne Blanc-Burgundy, France

It is a complete rarity for us to work with the larger négociants in Burgundy, although the big names like Drouhin, Latour and Bouchard all make some very serviceable, sometimes very good wines. The term négociant can conjure up some unpleasant connotations: big and soulless, a more “corporate” side to Burgundy, a place that we tend to romanticize for its farmers, bucolic hills, blue-footed chickens, and idyllic lifestyle complete with beret, baguette and stinky cheeses (Époisses anyone?).

 

Faiveley is a fair-sized négociant, with most of their holdings in Mercurey, in the Côte Chalonnaise. We tasted through a range of their 2011s and 2010s a few weeks and were struck by how clean and proper everything seemed to be. But we were especially drawn to their Bourgogne Blanc bottling, which was fresh, mineral driven, toasty and like drinking a liquid apple orchard. And although we have inured ourselves to the sticker shock which inevitably accompanies every bottle of Burgundy these days, imagine our delight to have found AFFORDABLE BURGUNDY!!!!!

 

At this price you can afford to drink Burgundy again on the regular.

 bicavv

2007 Quinta da Bica “Vinhas Velhas” Tinto, Dão, Portugal

 

Portuguese wines have become part of our regular rotation in our monthly samplers here at Perman Wine Selections.

 

With such diversity in terroir within a relatively small country, there is really something for every palate in Portugal.

 

One region that really speaks to us is that of the Dão.  There is a combination of finesse and power that one can find in both the white and the reds of the region.

 

We are very happy to support the wines of Quinta da Bica, a fantastic and very small property in the shadows of the Serra da Estrela, the tallest mountain range in Portugal.  Protected by the mountains, the vineyards enjoy good warmth during the summer, but also a dramatic temperature drop at night.

 

These are good climatic conditions for grapes such as Touriga Nacional, Jaen, Rufete, Baga, Alvarelhão, and Bastardo, grapes that all make their way into the 2007 Bica “Vinhas Velhas.”  Those last words denote “Old Vines,” 50+ year-old vines that give depth and flavor to the grapes.

 

Fermentation at Quinta da Bica happens in stainless steel tanks, and the 2007 “Vinhas Velhas” was aged for five year in used French oak barrels.

 

Decant this wine an hour before consuming if possible.  It’s aromas really open, with notes of dried cherry, blackberry, menthol and loam.  A silky texture up front finishes with notes of plums and long, gentle, baking spices.

 

It’s classic with roasted partridge, but if left your hunting cap and rifle back at the lodge, you can always go buy a nice aged steak to enjoy alongside.

 

Please open up a bottle to taste now, and know that it can age over another decade easily.  A killer value.

canrafols

2006 Can Ràfols dels Caus “Gran Caus” Tinto Reserva, Penedès, Spain

 

The red wines of the Penedés region, lying just south of Barcelona, are some of the most often overlooked wines of Spain.

 

One producer that does give some notoriety to the region, and deservedly so is that of Can Ràfols dels Caus.  Craig has had a chance to visit the estate and meet with its charismatic owner, Carlos Esteva.

 

For a long time Esteva has pushed for the Pènedes to be sub-divided further than how it is today, the Alt Penedès and the Baix Penedès.  The reason why is that the territory that his winery sits in, called the Garraf Massif is a very particular microclimate, having its own unique terroir that differentiates it from the rest of the Alt Penedès.

 

The Garraf Masif is a Mediterranean climate, with cooling breezes from the Sea, all at high altitude.  There is a mixture of soil types on the estate, with the red grapes typically sitting in a clay and chalk mixture, with very shallow soil.  The soil, the climate and the environment are well suited to Bordeaux varietals, and so with Gran Caus red you have a blend of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Merlot.

 

This is very Bordeaux in style, but yet distinctly a wine from the Garraf Masif.  Amazing to have an aged wine like this available, and it really shows its aromatic complexity with a mixture of delicate fruit, mineral, and herbal notes that one would definitely understand after walking through the vineyards of Can Ràfols dels Caus.  The tannins are well integrated, and its earthy elements call out to be served with a grilled duck breast, or hangar steak.

 

A name to know in the world of Spanish wine.

 

$24.00 BTL. / $288.00 CASE OF12

 chiarli

2013 Cleto Chiarli Lambrusco Del Fondatore-Emilia-Romagna, Italy

 

Lambrusco still suffers from the permanent scars left upon the region from the frightful product called Riunite that was so popular in the 1970s. You may remember this tag line: “Riunite on ice- so nice”.

 

We have thankfully moved on from this era, and we have access to more artisan versions of Lambrusco.

 

Cleto Chiarli is one such producer. They own vineyards outside the town of Modena, which is the epicenter for the production zone. The bottle we offer today is made from a clone of Lambrusco called Sorbara, which differs from the more well-known variety of Grasparossa. Grasparossa is often responsible for dark, somewhat tannic Lambruscos, and Sorbara for light, frothy, quality sparklers. Chiarli’s Fondatore bottling is precisely that: lightly colored and brimming with fresh strawberries and raspberries, in possession of fragrant earthiness. Fondatore is made via champagne method, and is the perfect partner for an afternoon snack of salumi and cheese.

 

$18.00/BTL.-$108.00 CASE OF 6

 

===

wess

2013 Rainer Wess Gruner Veltliner “Wauchauer”-Wachau Austria

 

This of you who like mineral driven, higher-than-high acid wines will find yourselves right at home with this selection from Rainer Wess.

 

The vines of the Wachau are planted in steeply terraced hills that make up the walls of the Danube Valley, a cold and difficult place to make wine, but the wines are rewarding and delicious. There is a range of styles here: crisp, fresh and vibrant to dense, concentrated and unctuous.

 

The Wachauer bottling comes from some of the less treacherously graded vineyard sites, in the towns of  Unterloiben and Dürnstein, and are the first of Wess’ grapes to be harvested, producing a lean, aromatic style of Gruner, racy and thirst-quenching.

 

Despite this rather “summery” description, this is the kind of wine that works really well with an autumnal pork braise, grilled sausages or root vegetables simmered with cream and scented with nutmeg.

 

$18.00/BTL.-$216.00/PER CASE OF 12

===

broadside
2012 Broadside Cabernet Sauvignon-Paso Robles, California

 

Broadside brings a balanced and unique approach to Cabernet production in Paso Robles, which, at times, can be a bit bombastic and overwrought.

 

The grapes for this wine come from a single, high-altitude plot called Margarita, which at 1000 feet above sea level, is cool at night and enjoys a breezy, coastal influence courtesy of the Pacific Ocean. Clocking in at 13.7% (very low for Paso), they work with vines that average 15 years, and that produce very small berries. This insures a cabernet that is structured and complex, rather than one that unknits upon opening the bottle. No commercial yeast is employed (again quite rare in cabernet production) and new oak is kept to a minimum (3% at most).

 

Despite all this language that implies a certain restraint, it does still remain true to it’s region, offering a juicy panache of black and blue fruit, and is definitely a dense little tooth stainer, because we are coming to the kind of nights when that’s just what you will want.

 

Toothbrush not included.

Friday Feature 09/05/14: The Wines of Massican.

Massican Wines-Napa Valley, California

Dan Petroski started his winemaking career at the famed Russian River Estate Dumol. Despite having little experience, he showed prodigious talent, and was quickly tapped to be the winemaker at Larkmead, one of Napa’s oldest estates. And while he has kept his “day” job at Larkmead, since 2009 he has been making some extraordinarily delicious white wines under the Massican label.

One of the most fortuitous trends of the last five years has been a small group of Napa producers who have collectively taken their feet off the roaring throttle that defines the region’s style: big, in your face, wines that sometimes can be just a little too much. Petroski, along with others like Steve Matthiasson & Matthew Rorick have decided to prove that mineral-driven, crisp whites with structure and balance ARE possible in Napa Valley.

Only a handful of accounts were offered these wines, and we are pleased to be among them. As with many of the newsletter wines, the quantities are limited.

===

2013 Massican “Annia”

This is an absolutely love white blend inspired by the mysterious and thirst quenching white wines of Friuli, Italy. It’s varietal composition is 44 % Friuliano, 36% Ribolla Gialla & 20% Chardonnay. The Friuliano comes from a 63+ year old vineyard plot in Chiles Valley, and the Ribolla Gialla comes from the late George Vare’s famous plantings. These two grapes add a bracing mineral component to the wine, which clocks in at a manageable 12.5% alcohol.

$29.00/BTL.

24 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

2013 Massican Sauvignon Blanc

We have all had a less-than-inspiring Sauvignon Blanc from California, and we all know how fresh and wonderful they can be (Hello Sancerre!). Two stand-out Sauvignons from the region have always been Spottswoode and Araujo, and Massican’s version rivals both. Sweet citrus and classic, tart herbaceous flavors co-mingle in the glass.

$29.00/BTL

36 BOTTLES AVAILABLE

===

2013 Massican “Gemina”

Although in previous vintages this has been a blend, in 2013 this is 100% glorious Chardonnay from Hyde Vineyard in Carneros, a very famous spot for this Burgundian variety.

This Chardonnay offers the warm baked apple and pear flavors one would expect, coupled with a fine, crisp underpinning, owed to its not being pushed through a malolactic conversion.

6 for $60-Something Sampler

solo

Matteo Correggia “Solo” Piemonte, Italy N.V.
Matteo Correggia is a high quality producer who works in the Roero, in the northeastern corner of the Cuneo province. All the expected Piemontese varieties grow here, especially Nebbiolo and Arneis.
The “Solo” bottling is not a wine normally produced by Correggia, but 2013 was kind and brought them a little extra fruit. So they decided to combine a few tanks of Nebbiolo, Barbera and Brachetto and the end product was this delightful red blend.
Admittedly, Brachetto on its own can be a little floral, but combined with the nobility of Nebbiolo and the charm of Barbera, the resulting wine is a fresh juicy but not-without-structure affair, perfect for the last lingering days..

saima

2013 Casa de Saima Rosé- Bairrada, Portugal
Oh does it pain us to say it, but summer is winding down.
This summer we saw an insane (in a good way) amount of requests for dry Rosé from all over the world.  Most of those folks saw it as the ultimate summer drink.
We here at Perman Wine Selections view it as a year-round adult beverage, so even though we expect a slow in sales of the pink stuff, we are giving it another placement our our monthly 6 for $60-Something sampler.
This Rosé, handpicked by Craig, on a recent trip to Portugal, is a clear winner.
Casa de Saima is a name you will see a lot here in the shop because in our estimation, it is one of the Bairrada region’s best producers.  They also offer great value.  So the best of the best, and at crazy prices, how could one go wrong?
The truly, special indigenous varietal of the Bairrada is called Baga.  It forms the basis of this excellent Rosé, 80% to be exact, with the other 20% coming from perhaps Portugal’s most famous red varietal, Touriga Nacional.
They do it old-school at Casa de Saima, with a brief crushing and maceration in stone lagares (open top cement tanks, used to crush grapes by foot).  The fermentation process happens in stainless steel tanks, and after a brief resting it is bottled and sent to all the Rosé fans around the world.  Ok, actually Casa de Saima is only in 2 markets in the United States, Boston and the market called Perman Wine Selections.
So get it here, and come quick because with a dry Rosé as delicious and juicy is this, it’s going to keep the party going.

 montgras2010 MontGras “200” Reserva Cabernet-Central Valley, Chile
Chile has always been a fascinating place for wine and historically very important. It is easy to dismiss the whole of the country as a source for cheap n’easy vino, but we should not.

 

Geographically, Chile affords nearly perfect environments for premium grape growing: geologically appropriate soils, and mountains that protect grapes from extreme temperatures and the ravages of oceanic proximity.
Colhagua is one of those places and a particularly great spot for Bordeaux varieties. The Bicentennial bottling from MontGras is a blend of 85% Cabernet Sauvignon and 15% Carmenère. It offers an opulent texture, and a complex array of fruit. There is a nuanced herbal quality courtesy of the Carmènere. All in all, a lot of wine for not too many pesos!

dorices

2011 Domaine des Dorices Muscadet Sèvre Et Maine “Cuvée Choisie”- Loire Valley, France
It is no secret, we do enjoy a Muscadet or two here at Perman Wine Selections, and we were happy to find a stash of “choice blend” from Domaine Dorices at a very nice price.
Although you may be used to consuming Muscadet in it’s infancy, because of the lees aging required by the appellation, Muscadet ages extremely well. Sèvre et Maine bottlings require that the wine stay in contact with its lees (yeast left over from the fermentation process) for at least nine months.
The other thing that gets a little confusing with Muscadet is that it has nothing to do with Muscat or Moscato, so please do not expect a sweet wine here. Muscadet is just the region, the grape is a sibling of Chardonnay called Melon de Bourgogne, or the Melon of Burgundy. Clearly the Burgundians do not care very much for melons; this grape was banned from Burgundy hundreds of years ago. Thankfully, the denizens of the Atlantic Loire love melons, and there it stayed!
This is in an absolutely lovely place right now; while still citric and mineral driven, there is a mellow, almost honeyed quality, a nice result of being in the bottle for a few years.

doupia 

2011 Château d’Oupia Minervois Tradition-Languedoc, France

We often feature wines from the Languedoc on our 6 for $60 something sampler, it is such a diverse area and absolutely tremendous for delicious, value-driven wines.
MInervois is one of those places, 15 miles inland from the Meditteranean sea, situated directly between the cities of Narbonne and Carcassone, dotted with gravelly rocks and green hills alike. It is quite large, almost 5000 hectares of vines find themselves within the appellation spanning two departments: the Hérault and the Aude.
Château D’Oupia, a 12th century castle located in the village of Oupia, in the heart of the appellation, has been producing reliable, tasty wines for quite a while now. Andre Iche was first winemaker in the village to break from the co-op and make wine indecently; he is survived by his daughter who is now in charge.
The Minervois Tradition is a blend 50% Carignan (from vineyards up to 100 years old), 30% Syrah and 20% Grenache. It is aromatic, full and densely colored, with a long finish of dark fruits. Astonishingly, this is a wine you could put away for 5 years, if you wanted, but life is short so feel free to drink it all now.

errazuiz
2013 Errazuriz Sauvignon Blanc “Estate Series”- Valle de Aconcagua, Chile

In our estimation, Chile still remains the go to place for $10-ish a bottle Sauvignon Blanc.

Take this example from Errazuriz in Chile, one of the countries most iconic estates, located in the Aconcagua Valley in the North.

This wine over-delivers for its price point, displaying bright citrus, apple and herb notes on the nose.  The acidity, and it is real acidity, not added, is well-balanced and refreshing.

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the Aconcagua Costa Region, close to the Pacific Ocean, it is the right climate for a grape such as Sauvignon Blanc.

It’s more and more difficult to find high quality Sauvignon Blanc, and even wine in general for $10-ish dollars these days, and luckily we have the folks at Errazuriz to help keep hope alive.

Great as an apéritif, but also the type of wine that works with a spicier shellfish dish and some Thai curry dishes.

The Wine Wire: The Son of Txakolina

 

 

 

By now, most of you are familiar with the dry, slightly sparkling wine that hails from the Basque region of Spain called “Txakolina”. It’s easy to drink and difficult to say. One of our favorite producers, Ameztoi, in Gertaria, has also begun making a “Metodo Tradicional” Rosé, which he calls, “Hijo”, or son in the Basque language. This is a fully sparkling, secondary-fermentation-in-the-bottle rosé of Txakolina, and very delicious. Like all these types of things, it is limited too.

figueira
2012 Casal Figueira “António” Branco- Lisboa, Portugal
Casal Figueira was born out of the passion of António Carvalho. He is someone that I never had the chance to meet, but I can relate to the type of passion he had.
While I strongly believe that there is no more exciting “emerging” wine country than Portugal, it must also be noted that being a small, quality-first producer within Portugal is a downright daunting task.  The local Portuguese market for small-production, obscure wines has an almost nonexistent customer base.
So imagine a passionate winemaker like António Carvalho working with just a few hectares of vines, vinifying them, and then trying to sell them in a market that rarely values the type of wines he produced.
Marta Soares, an artist from Lisbon, rented a small studio space in the countryside north of Lisbon.  Located within the same space as António’s winery, she noticed the same passion and devotion that I spoke about.  It was one of the attributes she fell in love with, and soon the couple was married.  Marta began assisting António, her first endeavor into the wine business.
Fast forward to a tragic day during the harvest of 2009 when António was treading Castelão grapes in a lagar with a co-worker.  As the co-worker took a quick break and António continued, he had a heart attack and passed away.
Marta has carried on with António’s work. Channeling the same passion, she produces what is one of Portugal’s best white wines, made from the local and very obscure Vital grape.  I spent a good portion of the day with Marta on my recent trip, and had an opportunity to see these old-vines nestled in the hills of the Montejunto mountain, meeting some of the owners of these vineyards, and reflecting on what it is to be truly passionate about what you do for a living.
The 2012 Casal Figueira “António” is stunning.  Aromatic notes of citrus peel, wild herbs and almond.  Medium-weight on the palate, with lemon, orange and mineral.  Incredibly lengthy and superbly complex.
Pay careful attention to the serving temperature of this wine, as it must not be too cold.  Think of it as a fine Premier Cru Meursault, serving at a similar temperature and pouring it into a Burgundy glass. It was fantastic paired with some local clams that day, and is an ideal pairing to seafood.
I’m really proud to have this wine in my store, and I hope that each and everyone of you will get a chance to try it.

xinomavro

2009 Domaine Karydas Naoussa- Macedonia, Greece

I will admit that several years ago, I often passed on the opportunity to taste or explore wines from Greece. My history with these wines had been cheap commercial bottlings that  offered very little charm. But things have changed, and as of late we have been sampling many great wines, offering not only charm, but often high quality levels coupled with tremendous value.
It is the spirit of the above paragraph that we feature a fantastic red from Domaine Karydas. This wine is made from 100% Xinomavro. For the trivia lovers among you, this is one of three grapes that begins with the letter “X”. Xinomavro, when farmed correctly, often draws comparisons to Nebbiolo, in color, structure and acidity. This, along with Agiorgitiko, is the dominant grape of northern Greece.
While Xinomavro is often blended with other grapes, Domaine Karydas has identified a plot called Ano Gastro, hillside vineyards composed of sand, clay and limestone (wine friendly soils!!). The site is small, only 6 acres, and the vines are carefully tended. Upon harvesting, the wine spends about 2 years in barriques, 50% of which are new.
Now at 6 years of age, there is really nice integration between wood and fruit. The wine is accomplished and generous. If I were blind tasting this, it would be very, very difficult not to make conclusions that pointed to a 2004 Barolo. There is an elegant nobility to this wine, dried cherries, tobacco, earth and firm tannins. Eaters of lamb will rejoice!

frangy

2013 Domaine Lupin Roussette de Savoie Frangy- Savoie, France

If you are in the mood for a delicate, mineral-driven, cool-climate white, you have come to the right place.
Over the last 10 years, there has been an exponential rise in interest in the sleepy and hardly-mentioned regions of the Savoie. The Savoie is responsible for a host of light, frothy red wines, delightful sparklers and the kind of white described above.
Roussette de Savoie is one of three wine zones, and works solely with the grape Altesse (which, confusingly enough, is also called Roussette). Altesse shares genealogical traits with the more widely planted Swiss variety, Chasselas.
Frangy is a recognized Cru of Roussette de Savoie, and consists of a smattering of small vineyards all within the Vallée des Usses. Lupin works with only 5 hectares on a hillside called Les Aricoques. Most of the vines are about 25 years old, with the exception of a 60+ years old parcel which is bottled separately under the name “Cuvêe du Pépe”. The fermentation  and aging for both wines is done in stainless steel.
Fans of cheese, this is your wine. Its lemon-y, citric nature, aforementioned minerality, and freshness naturally cut through the richness of alpine cheeses such as the glorious Comté, the effusive Tomme de Savoie, and the earthy, salty goodness of Raclette and Emmenthal.

 saima
2012 Casa de Saima Espumante Bruto Reserva-Bairrada, Portugal
Finding great sparkling for under $20 has become a big challenge these days, particularly those made in the Champagne method.
When I traveled to Portugal for the first time in 2013, I knew that some sparkling was produced, particularly in the Bairrada region, but I didn’t have a full understanding of both the potential and the tradition around it.
Bairrada is an Atlantic influenced region located in Northern Portugal, about 35 kilometers north of Coimbra.
In Portugal it is widely known for its sparkling wine, typically made from a blend, with the star varietals being Maria Gomes (a.k.a. Fernão Pires) and Bical.  In a typical producers range of wines, they also will make a sparkling based around the red varietal, Baga.  This grape, which is widely known to make sturdy, tannic, long-lived red wines, can produce good sparkling, usually with just a very short contact of juice to skin so that it does not pick up tannin.
Over the coming months I plan on introducing you to the full range of excellent wines from a very small Bairrada producer called Casa de Saima.  Since I will talk in detail about the winery over the coming months, I just want to focus today’s writings on their sparkling wines.
This Espumante Bruto Reserva is truly one of the best sparkling wine values you will find anywhere in the world!
It is made from Bical, Maria Gomes and Chardonnay, with secondary fermentation in bottle.
This is a style of sparkling that will appeal to the masses. It has the complexity and freshness to appeal to the sparkling wine fanatic, as well as the clean, fruit-driven style that makes it oh-so-easy to drink.
One of the great culinary traditions of Bairrada is Leitão assado, aka, Roasted Baby Pig.  Walk into a restaurant that specializes in this delicacy and you will see the room filled with people enjoy bottles of Espumante with baby pig and, to my surprise, segments of fresh orange.  It is a phenomenal pairing, and just about as fun of a meal as you can possibly have.
This sparkling wine will be a new Perman Wine staple, and as such you can count on us to have good supply for all your sparkling wine needs.  At this price point, you can pour it for large gatherings, or like us, just have a bottle always chilling in the refrigerator for that daily glass (ok, glasses) of bubbly goodness!

Montirius

2010 Domaine Montirius Vacqueyras “Les Clos”-Southern Rhône Valley, France

Vacqueyras often gets mentioned in the same breath as Gigondas. They are neighboring appellations, and the vineyards lie at the foothills of the Dentelles de Montmirail. Both were once part of the more general Côtes du Rhône Villages, but Gigondas got it’s upgrade in 1972 and Vacqueyras followed in 1990.
You can think of Vacqueyras as a super-charged Côtes du Rhône; always a Grenache based blend with red and black fruit, white pepper and silky, but firm tannins.
Domaine Montirius is a biodynamic producer who farm 58 hectares total, all with an obviously ecologically conscious touch. The single vineyard, “Les Clos” is composed of complex blue marl and clay, and planted with Grenache & Syrah. These clay based soils impart a richer, more textured character to the wines, and you will be pleased, we are sure, by the balance of fruit and spice of this wine. The wine is aged in cement vats, and therefore a very pure, expression of this Mediterranean paradise.
We are also offering the wine at a tremendous price. And, as these things go, when it is gone, it  is gone.

pif2

2013 Clos Roche Blanche Touraine Rouge “Cuvée Pif”-Loire Valley, France

In the small village of Mareuil Sur Cher, in the Touraine region of the Loire Valley, the rather wild looking Didier Barrouillet does, and has been doing, his thing for many years now. Like any good French hippie, he farms without the use of chemicals, and relies upon other plant life and beneficial animals to take care of insects and disease. He produces small amounts of Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay, Côt (Malbec) and Cabernet Franc.
The Cuvée  Pif is a blend of Côt and Cabernet Franc, Pif roughly translates to red nose, and is slang cheap drinking wine, although this wine certainly doesn’t taste cheap.
Didier comes from the non-interventionist school of winemaking; but in that all of winemaking involves some intervention, this term is somewhat meaningless. However,
if you are a lover of earthy, cool climate red from the Loire Valley and have had success with wines like Chinon and Bourgeuil, this is a wine that should be on your radar. Didier is somewhat famous in certain circles, so there is not any available outside the sampler. This too, is a wine that can age gracefully, for several years to come.

The Wine Wire: Luneau-Papin Muscadet Sèvre et Maine “Butte de la Roche”

Just five days ago, Eric Asimov, in a New York Times article , bemoaned the lack of enthusiasm for Muscadet, even though the appellation is at an all-time high for quality bottlings. We are happy that our savvy customers have always drunk the stuff with and have been early adopters of, what a friend of mine always calls, “somm-crack”.

The region of Muscadet is gorgeous to drive through, just a half an hour outside the city of Nantes in the western part of the Loire Valley. The main grape we talk about here is Melon de Bourgogne, a 16th century outcast from the Burgundy region and sibling of Chardonnay. It eventually made its way up to the French Atlantic, where it found a home in the Pays Nantais (Nantes Country). In Muscadet, Melon makes a dry, crisp fresh and lees-y wine, a great alternative to Chablis.

Friday Feature 08/15/14: Dry Riesling Galore from Keller, Koehler-Ruprecht & Dönnhoff

Hello & Happy Friday!

 

DRY RIESLING!

 

Largely ignored by the majority, those in the know understand its stature as one of the most important and complex varietals we have in the wine world.

 

So today we have decided to focus on it, offering a few exceptional values, as well as some of the most rare selections that Germany has to offer.

 

Koehler-Ruprecht, Klaus-Peter Keller, and Dönnhoff: We aren’t messing around.

 

As part of our public service announcement, we must urge those that think all Riesling is sweet that they MUST try one of these DRY Riesling.

 

The following wines are from wineries that are the equivalent of the DRC Montrachet’s of Burgundy, the Ravenau “Les Clos” of Chablis, Coche-Dury “Corton-Charlemagne” and …

 

Now that we thinking of it, when we talk about famous, THE most famous white wines of the world, we ONLY talk about Chardonnay, and usually from Burgundy.

 

The greatest Dry Rieslings (see some these below) are as good as these wines above, if not better.  They are a fraction of the price, and quite frankly, they work better with a myriad of food pairings.

 

Instead of reducing Riesling to a summer time quaff, lets celebrate it for what it is – one of the greatest grape varietals on earth.

 

Have a Fantastic Weekend!

KoehlerRuprecht

Koehler-Ruprecht: Iconic Wines from the Pfalz Region

 

When we use a world like “icon” we don’t take it lightly.  It is widely known in wine-geekdom that Koehler-Ruprecht, is counted as one of the greatest producers of dry Riesling in Germany and the world.
These are wines that need to be in the glasses of all Riesling fans, and more importantly in the glasses of those curious, as you certainly will be transformed into a fan.
If you have a moment, please check out this video, as it will give you all the background you need to know about the winery.
Today’s offering includes some “everyday” wines for those still learning, as well as some of the rare Reserve wines that I have special ordered directly from the winery.
All wines being offered today are from Koehler-Ruprecht’s top vineyard site called Saumagen.  In an interview with its winemaker Dominik Sona, he told me a little bit about Saumagen.
“The Saumagen vineyard is a south facing slope with a limestone soil. The vineyard is high in elevation and sheltered by the forest from the west winds, which gives the grapes the chance to ripen slow. Even in warm years, we are able to pick late, due to those conditions.
The vineyards was established by the Romans. It used to be a limestone quarry in their time and after no longer using it as such, they planted vines on the slopes or terraces.”
The Reserve wines that come from this vineyard aren’t made every year, only in the best vintages which they believe to have the complexity and potential to age.  The first year produced was 1998, and 2001, 2004, 2005, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2011 have followed.  Sona suggested that they are getting better ripening in recent years, probably due to global warming.
The Reserve wines are always very, very rare.  From only 500 bottles in 2005 the 2008 vintage where they made a “high” number of 1500 bottles.
One of the great things about an offer like this is that it gives you a rare opportunity to taste wine from a single vineyard, harvested at different ripeness levels.  Seeing a Spätlese Trocken and an Auslese Trocken are quite rare, and here you have the ability to taste both.
Choosing from this list is somewhat difficult and we are happy to provide more information and advice upon request.  Keep in mind that the Reserve wines are from fantastic vintages with slightly different nuances.
These are incredible examples of Dry Riesling from the Pfalz!

keller
Weingut Keller
Located in Flörsheim-Dalsheim, not far from Frankfurt, the Keller estate is not located in the prime real estate zone of the Rheinhessen, yet Klaus Peter Keller has, along with his Father, changed the way they worked the vineyards and have become, one of the greatest producers in Germany.

Meticulous pruning, along with the adoption of a biodynamic viticultural philosophy and careful winemaking are coupled with a great respect to the individual terroir. All this contributes to the success of the Keller wines, as well as passion and hard work. Their focus on clonal selection also serves them well.

There are a few German terms that can be confusing. We are offering a few of things from the Keller Estate in this email, a wonderful dry Riesling (tröcken) that is affordable and made for youthful drinking, although feel free to age it.

Then there is the business of the mixed Grosses Gewächs case. Grosses Gewächs translates to “great growth” and applies to certain vineyard sites (or portions thereof) and to top-level wines made in a dry style.

In the case of Weingut Keller, they work with four Grosses Gewächs total. The mixed 6 pack case we are offering today (and this must be purchased as a 6 pack, we are unable to break adhering to Klaus-Peter’s wishes) is all 2012 Riesling, and will contain 1 bottle each of Abts Erde and Mortsein, two bottles of the incomparable G-Max, a wine so coveted that the Kellers keep the location of the vineyard a locked secret, and 2 bottles each of Hipping, a relatively new vineyard for Keller, purchased from Franz Schmitt, composed of red slate.

Lastly, we have a scant few bottles of 2011 Abts Erde left and will offer those as well, for individual sale. Abts Erde is a particularly compelling wine, imbued with minerality, a honeyed purity and incredible length. As Craig puts it, “this is simply one of the greatest Dry Riesling’s I’ve ever tasted.

donnhoff

Weingut Dönnhoff 
This 200 year old estate has been renowned across the world ever since Helmut started making the wines in 1971, and today his son Cornelius stands at the helm, upholding that top level of quality. The Dönnhoffs are located in the upper Nahe, and their vineyards, steeply terraced and composed of slate and various volcanic soils, contain some of the oldest Riesling vineyards in the region.

 

Today we are featuring two bottles each of three different Grosses Gewachs, all for individual sale. Just to re-cap, a Grosses Gewächs is akin to a Grand Cru vineyard and the Rieslings are fermented dry.

 

One other small note; although many people buy these Grosses Gewächs (Hermannshöle, Dellchen & Felsenberg) for long-term aging, we just want to also point out that with a solid decanting, these wines are quite pretty and drink beautifully when young. And although we might be considered blasphemous for the previous statement, we are going to stick by it.
