Château la Rame Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc Blend Sainte Croix du Mont 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Seeking extreme ripeness, the harvest is done entirely by hand and proceeds in successive passes over a series of weeks. The fermentation occurs over a three to six week period at controlled temperatures [between 18 and 22 degrees centigrade]. The traditional cuvee is then aged for two years in "cuve" before bottling.

This wine has been brooding in my cellar for about 4 years and I am not a believer in antipodal wine longevity. Perhaps I should change that opinion for this sanguineous wine is holding strong at age 7 years with notes of cassis on the nose followed by semi-sweet blackberry and bitter almond on the palate. Very mouth filling medicinal and warm, the wine is very well crafted and to be recommended. 90 points. May be held another 5 years at least.

Mouth coating wine. Jammy and powerful and decadent. Delightful expression of carménere. - Tasted at Hostile Grape 10/8/09

Purple Angel 2006 - Montes: Purple Angel 2006 - Rotwein von MontesDer Montes Purple Angel ist ein Ausnahme-Wein, der streng limitiert ist und von dem wir daher auch nur eine Flasche pro Kunden abgeben können. Aufgrund der idealen Wachstumsbedingungen zeigt sich dieser Wein in einem tiefen Purpurrot. Auch durch die unterschiedlichen Lagen und Rebsorten kann er mit einem komplexen Bukett aus eleganten dunklen Fruchtnoten von Pflaumen und Blaubeeren des Apalta-Carmenère aufwarten. Zusätzlich erleben wir die lebhafte Würze eines Carmenère aus Marchigüe und die wildfruchtigen Brombeeraromen des Petit Verdot. Den Gaumen verwöhnt er mit seiner Vollmundigkeit, Intensität, seinem Körperreichtum und mit reichlich reifem Tannin, das dem Wein seine Festigkeit und Struktur verleiht. Trinken Sie ihn allein zum Entspannen oder zu kräftigen Wildgerichten, saftig geschmorter Lammkeule mit vielen Kräutern, Rinderbraten oder gegrilltem Fleisch mit würzigen Saucen.Weingut: MontesLand: ChileRegion: Colchagua ValleyRebsorten: 92% Carmenère, 8% Petit VerdotAlkoholgehalt: 14,5 Vol. %Säuregehalt: 3,5 g/lRestsüße: 2,5 g/lInhalt: 0,75 lEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16 - 18°CFassreife: in Barriques gereift (18 Monate)Auszeichnungen des Montes Purple Angel 2006:96 Parker Punkte91 Punkte- The Wine Spectator Mai 2009 Rotwein > Chile > Colchagua Valley

Every year this Sauvignon Blanc manages to deliver fresh citrus aromas and flavors, a full blast of zest, and all the food-matching capabilities one could ask for. On the nose, it's mostly passion fruit, while flavors include green apple and kiwi.

Fresh and snappy, with aromas of pine, citrus and tropical fruits. Montes usually shows a good hand with Sauvignon, and they have in this case. The wine is full and melony but also racy and touched by a little green bean and asparagus. And that's as complex as it gets.

Lebendiger und nach dunklen Früchten und Gewürzen riechender Duft. Eleganter Wein mit ausgereifter Tanninne, die dem Wein Struktur und Griff verleiht. Im Gaumen bilden sich Geschmäcker von schwarzen Beeren.

Flavors of bright citrus and passion fruit, adorned by fresh green beans and a touch of pepper, define this very refreshing sauvignon blanc. Last year's vintage hit Wine Enthusiast's Top 100 Best Buys list, and accolades for Montes show no sign of waning! Savor this Sauvignon with bacon-wrapped scallops.
