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.

Selección Blanco 2009 - Vega Tolosa: Selección Blanco 2009 - Weißwein von Vega Tolosa Die Selección Blanco von Vega Tolosa ist eine weiße Cuvée, die im Glas in einem hellen Strohgelb mit goldgelben Nuancen leuchtet. Das Bukett dieses Weißweines ist komplex und zeigt eine vielfältige Palette von Aromen wie Zitrusfrüchten, tropischen Früchten, Ananas und Banane. Er wirkt dabei leicht würzig und mineralisch, verfügt über eine angenehme Säurestruktur, ist frisch und kompakt im Geschmack, während sich am Gaumen wieder viel Fruchtigkeit findet. Dies ist ein idealer Begeliter zur Pasta mit Meeresfrüchten, dezent gewürztem, weißen Fisch, gebratenem Huhn oder Shrimps.Weingut: Vega TolosaLand: SpanienRegion: Kastilien-La Mancha - Albacete (D.O.

Light straw color. This wine has notes of citrus, lychee and peach with a very subtle hint of vanilla. On the palate, this wine is mouthfilling with a finish that bounces with crisp acidity.

Die Früchte der alten Reben ergeben einen intensiven, geschmacksvollen Verdejo. Sortentypische Aromen nach frischen Früchten (v.a. Pfirsich) und etwas Fenchel.

Trockener, aromatischer Weisswein mit intensiven Aromen nach frischen Haselnüssen und Butter. Im Gaumen weist er eine angenehme Säure auf, ist rassig und gut strukturiert. Ein reicher und komplexer Wein.
