Sancerre les Monts Dame Bailly Reverdy 2005

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.

Traveled to Chile specifically to seek this gem. 2005 is amazing! The only wine to bring me to tears...¡Enhorabuena Montes!

An intriguing 23:2 blend of Carmenère and Petit Verdot, two grapes you don't see everyday. Lots of blackberry fruit and spice in this moderately tannic premium Chilean wine. It was perfectly drinkable, but clearly would have benefited from more time in the cellar when tasted in the late Summer 2008. Let it breathe. It comes in a ridiculously heavy bottle to complement its price tag (when its empty it feels like it is still full). I know this is one of the premiere wines of Chile, but the price tag is a bit silly. I'd love this at $30... or even $40.

love it, 90% Carmanere (grapes known to have extincted since 1880 in Bordeaux and resurfaced in Chile only since the last decade). aroma - blackcurrent, casis, coffee

Great wine. Hefty but balanced, and intriguing at every turn. I'm trying not to drink my last bottle of 2005 for another few years...it's got five more years in it at least!

The Ste.-Croix-de-Mont appellation is considered the finest of the trio of sweet wines (with Loupiac and Cadillac) across the river from Sauternes. This wine is botrytis-affected in a somewhat lighter style than traditional Sauternes.



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.
