Lucien le Moine Vosne Romanée les Suchots Premier Cru 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

6 x 75 cl 2009 AUSTRIA 3-6 weeks arrival

Soter Vineyards:
The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District.

The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District. As a vineyard site, Mineral Springs has an extremely compelling confluence of prime exposure, and uniform, well-drained, pale sedimentary soils. Imagine half of an upside-down bowl facing due south - here the vines absorb the sun from an ideal aspect, from morning through twilight. Unlike many vineyards with small depressions and moist swales, this is a gentle, highly uniform slope. We have high expectations for the vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs and Sparkling Wine that will eventually emerge from this vineyard. Mineral Springs Vineyard is planted between 380 and 440 feet in elevation. Exposure ranges from southeast to west, with most acreage facing south and southwest. Our soils are crumbly, loamy, pale marine Keasey series sediments such as sandstone and fractured siltstone, mixed with clay. The topsoil layer is rather shallow in many places, and drainage is excellent. Read less

This smells stemmy and composty, all feral with iron and green pepper and even a touch of celery. Fairly nicely balanced, rich and broad with sufficient acidity to perk things up a touch on the palate. There’s some nice fruit here as well, clear with both mineral and very gentle vegetal tones accenting the blueberryish fruit on the mid-palate that becomes more obvious on the finish. The finish is a touch short and tough, though the blueberry fruit and violet nuances do show some aromatic lift. Hopefully time will help this because today it is a bit ordinary at best. 84pts

Deeply flushed in appearance, the wine presents an overt nose of non-fruit elements: leather, buffalo jerky and North African spices. Cranberries, red cherries, plums and potting soil chime in on the palate. The mouthfeel is soft but balanced with an easy-going juiciness. The excellent balance helps the flavors hold on through a medium-finish. 13% abv

89 points: Wonderfully fragrant, with spiced currant, sweet aromatic wood, and a bit of camphor. The palate is bold, with anise and licorice over roasted cherry.The palate flavors dance around with achoholic energy. It has a good balance with fine tannins that support, and later coat the mouth.

Winemaker's Notes: Alcohol: 12.5 % Acidity: 5 g/l RS: 2.8 g/l Content: 0,75 l This is an excellent example of typical Austrian Grüner Veltliner: a dry and fresh white wine with influences of green apples, grapefruit and lemon. All this underlined by the spice of white pepper and ripe acidity

Lovely for drinking, plus held its own taste alongside a broccoli salad with a balsamic dressing.

Rhone, FranceDomaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras is a gorgeous red wine gem from the village of Vacqueyras in the southern Rhone region of France, situated between Chateauneuf-du-Pape and Gigondas. Le Couroulu is a 40-acre estate owned by winegrower Guy Ricard that consistently produces top-notch wines. The name Couroulu is the provencal name of the bird depicted on the label. This Cuvee Classique is a rich red blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvedre. It received 90+ scores from all 3 of the top critics: Tanzer 91, Parker 90 and Wine Spectator 90. Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras is deep ruby red in color with a gorgeous nose of blackberries, black cherries, cassis, olives, leather and dried herbs. Medium-full in body with a velvety texture and soft tannins, it is concentrated and rich on the palate and well balanced to enjoy over the next 7-8 years. This seductive red is long and spicy on the finish. Enjoy Domaine le Couroulu Vacqueyras as an ideal accompaniment to lamb chops, skirt steak, daube provencal and grilled vegetables.

Castillon is one of the best parts of the of the Candocirc;tes de Bordeaux; the wines are rustic and complex, an excellent complement to slow-cooked winter meals with lots of terrific herbs and spices. The Chandacirc;teau du Baradis shows off to perfection the black fruit, spice and earth for which the region is famous. A robust, hearty alternative to your favorite Rhandocirc;ne; try this with braised lamb or pot roast.

Hailing from the largest of the Beaujolais Crus, the Château de Bagnols Brouilly is a bit richer and bolder than many of the others. Medium-bodied, and loaded with bright cherry and ripe red currant flavors, this wine makes an excellent alternative to your favorite Côtes du Rhône. It drinks best with a slight chill (15 minutes in the fridge should do it), and is terrific with roast chicken or pork dishes, carpaccio or BBQ burgers.

Natürlicher Süsswein mit feinen Aromen von gekochten Früchten und Düften von Aprikosenkonfitüre und Quittengelee, wie sie typisch für Trauben mit Botrytis-Befall sind. Am Gaumen langanhaltende aromatische Fülle.
