Domaine Thomas Labaille Sancerre les Mont Damnes 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

A very ambitious style, with dark, exotic toast leading the way for fig sauce, currant paste and Turkish coffee flavors that manage to stay pure and driven. The long, very polished finish let a mineral note echo. Carmenère and Petit Verdot. Drink now... Wine Spectator. A Carmenere wine from Rapel Valley in Chile. 2006 Montes Purple Angel 750ml

Light yellow. Sharply focused citrus and pear aromas, with a light dusting of minerals. Clean, light orchard fruit flavors offer good concentration and finish brisk, with good length.

Crisp and lean, with lime and lemon flavors and a clean finish. Not big, but fresh and lively. Drink now.

Quite refined, as its sweet pea, chive, lime, mineral and floral notes run along a creamy yet lively palate. Very pretty finish. Drink now.

This could be Chile's most expressive, interesting white Sauvignon. It's got typical prickly pineapple, passion fruit, scallion and pepper notes, and pure citrus flavors backing it all up. The mouthfeel is zesty and spirited, but there's natural roundness, too. Some licorice adds complexity to the finish.

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.
