Sancerre les Montes Damnes Thomas-Labaille 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Das Bouquet offenbart eine intensive Aromatik von Zitrusfrüchten, von Stachelbeeren und grünem Apfel. Dieser sortenreine und -typische Sauvignon Blanc, der auf Anhieb zu gefallen weiss, besticht durch seine fruchtige Struktur und seinen gehaltvollen Körper. Das Zusammenspiel von Süsse und Säure ergibt ein sensorisch spannendes Genusserlebnis im Gaumen. Das Finale ist dementsprechend: vif, vielschichtig und reich an Sinneseindrücken.

One of Chile’s most renowned winemakers – Auriello Montes Sr. – blazed the path of bringing his country’s premium selections to the world when he joined forces with wine industry vet Douglas Murray and partners Alfredo Vidaurre and Pedro Grand in 1988. Together, they formed Viña Montes, which became the standard for premium Chilean wines with the introduction of Montes Alpha Cabernet Sauvignon. In the quarter century since then, the company has been instrumental in raising awareness, affinity, and acclaim for Chilean wines in over 100 countries worldwide. Hailing from Apalta in Chile’s Cochalgua Valley, Viña Montes produces 950,000 cases annually through its vineyards La Finca de Apalta (in Apalta); El Arcangel Estate (in Marchigue); and Los Nogales Estate (in Curico). Among the company labels are Montes Alpha “M,” Montes Folly, Purple Angel, Montes Alpha, Montes Classic Series, Montes Cherub, and Montes Twins. In 2004, a new cellar was created at Apalta through an investment of more than US$7 million. Chilean architect Samuel Claro, from the Claro and Swinburn Agency, created the space, which was decorated by Paula Gutierrez, a nationally renowned designer. Here, technology and equipment reside in a peaceful environment incorporating Feng Shui elements – water, air, metal and wood- to encourage harmony and a positive atmosphere, enhancing the total experience and resulting wines.

90 points Robert Parker: `The 2007 Sauvignon Blanc Leyda Vineyard a more serious effort is an unoaked cuvee with an expressive bouquet of spring flowers citrus and fresh herbs. Light- to medium-bodied it exhibits lively white fruit flavors vibrant acidity and excellent balance. This exceptional value has a pure fruit-filled finish.` A Smart Buy from the Wine Spectator: `Bony and chiseled with lots of lime sweet pea and gooseberry notes framed by mouthwatering acidity. Very fresh with solid length. Drink now.`

Sauvignon Blanc 2012 - 90 points, Wine & Spirits/ A classic San Antonio sauvignon, this wine’s citrus and mineral notes fill an unctuous texture, reflecting the warmth of the 2012 vintage. It’s balanced by costal acidity that prickles on the tongue.

Sauvignon Blanc Reserva 2009 - Massachusett's Beverage Business/ Grown in the cool San Antonio Valley. Coolly fermented and aged in stainless steel. Fine varietal nose. Fresh, full fruit combined with just enough acid balance and long finish. The 14 percent alcohol is not apparent.

From 1947 until the early 1990s, the Cotat family made one cuvee of each wine, whether under the Francis Cotat label or the Paul Cotat label. Same wine, two labels. The French government then interceded, deciding it illegal for two “independent growers” to combine their production to make single cuvees of a wine in a shared cellar. Brothers Francis and Paul decided to retire and turn their vineyards over to their sons, Pascal (son of Francis) and Francois (son of Paul). Pascal and Francois separated their production in order to avoid the same problems their fathers had experienced. Francois continues to operate in the family cellar while Pascal has recently built new cellars. Today the cousins produce their wines in separate cellars, but each still practices the same traditional winemaking techniques mastered by their fathers.
