This wine is from France, Champagne region. The name of this Cuvee - “Les Aventures' - comes from a hamlet located in the Chouilly... area, the prestigious village in the Cote des Blancs classed as a Grand Cru, at the foot of the Chateau de Saran. Here there is half a hectare of vines offering Chardonnays of exceptional quality, the secret of which lies in the particular chalky nature of the soil.The blends are made by selecting the wines from the very best harvests with complementary characteristics. The cuvee currently on sale is a blend of the 2002 and 2006 harvests.Because the quest for perfection means making uncompromising choices, only 2,000 bottles are sold each year. It is thus a very exclusive cuvee which will only get better with time.These bottles have aged for many years in our 18th-century chalk cellars with the traditional “stapled' corks. The ambient humidity, a particularity of the rare cellars to have been dug out of chalk, makes the cork porous, thereby allowing an exchange between the air and the wine and thus a very special form of ageing that may vary slightly from bottle to bottle.The bottle you buy has been numbered to identify it.Like the bottling, the riddling and disgorging operations are done by hand, thus respecting the traditions of our ancestors.The authenticity of the terroir and the purity of this great wine are reflected in the very sparse, pure, sober presentation. In line with the principles that have guided the making of this cuvee, the superfluous is banished from the label to leave nothing but the essential.Ideally should be tasted at cellar temperature (11 C). Do not hesitate to put it into a carafe. read more

This wine is from United States, California region, Napa County sub-region and Napa Valley appellation. Cakebreads interpretation ...of this wine is a classic expression of the varietal, with aromas of fresh pink grapefruit, mineral, and stone fruit. On the palate, the flavors mirror the aromas. Refreshing and lively fruit acids with hints of mineral, gooseberry, melon and grapefruit all contribute to this wines overall crisp impression. The wines lovely fruit intensity and subtle vanilla oak notes carry into the clean, persistent finish. The fruit is pressed immediately after harvest partially as whole berries and partially as clusters to control skin contact. Multiple yeast strains are used to enhance the wines spectrum of aromatic and flavor complexity. To further fine-tune flavors, the alcoholic fermentation of 75 to 80 percent of the must takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and the balance in small French oak barrels. Approximately half of the tank-fermented component is then transferred to small French oak barrels, with the barrel-fermented component, for three to five months aging. The barrels range in age from one to two years old, and the majority of the wine is aged in the older barrels. The barrel-fermented component is periodically stirred, a process called batonnage, to redistribute the lees, which enriches the wines texture and helps integrate the fruit flavors with the oak nuances. Up to ten percent of Semillon adds mineral and ripe fig notes to the blend, and five percent or less of Sauvignon Musque, a clone of Sauvignon Blanc, contributes a hint of spiciness to the wine. There is no malolactic fermentation. GRAPE VARIETY: 85%-90% Sauvignon Blanc, 2%-5% Sauvignon Musque, 5%-10% Semillion ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13.5%-14.5% TOTAL ACIDITY: 0.60-0.65g/100ml RESIDUAL SUGAR: 0.04-0.09g/100ml pH: 3.50-3.60.

Intense melon and citrus fruit aromas with delicate floral and herbal notes and a slight touch of oak are confirmed on this wines vibrantly fruity palate, which shows a refined acidity balanced by a crisp texture.

The wine is sensationally rich and once again a great success from this winery, which has had such an incredible track record for world-class Chardonnays. This should drink well for another 5-7 years, as their record for aging is brilliant. .Robert Parker, December/2015. The 2010 Chardonnay is a gorgeous wine laced with expressive varietal fruit, smoke, butter, minerals and French oak. This is a fairly restrained style, yet all of the elements are in perfect balance. A long, subtle finish rounds things out very nicely. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. This is a beautiful set of wines from Pahlmeyer. The wines are increasingly more refined and elegant than in the past. The absurdly heavy bottles, on the other hand, are very 1990s. In other words - out of touch.

Far Niente Chardonnay has earned its reputation as one of the great white wines worthy of aging.The resulting Far Niente Chardonnays are classically structured wines that are lush and round on the palate, while displaying the typical intensity of fruit and spicy oak aromas that have become synonymous with our house style. While the finish is long and clean, the flavors become increasingly full and complex with time. Our experience is that these wines improve in the bottle for at least five years, although they can grow in complexity and depth for possibly ten years or more.

This wine is from Germany, Mosel-saar-ruwer region, Mittel Mosel sub-region and Brauneberg appellation. The Juffer Sonnenuhr is th...e choicest center cut of the Brauneberg - the steepest and most south-facing part of the hillside. This Grosse Lage (grand cru) site produces profound, distinctive wines with great purity and concentration.. Vinous 93 points - Here we're up to 13 percent alcohol, but the Haags maintain that not only is enhanced must weight typical for this site, so is an ability to buffer and ameliorate any effects of elevated alcohol, and this is borne out in the present instance; indeed, I'm amazed at the sense of elegance this conveys. Underlying nuttiness here is slightly less pithy and piquant than in the corresponding Juffer, suggesting hazelnut and hickory, while white peach, grapefruit and lime present a united front of juiciness and animation even as their pits and seeds convey piquancy. The finish is vibrant, gripping, subtly tinged with saliva-liberating salinity and remarkably refreshing for a Grosses Gewachs. This wasn't harvested until November, 'but given how healthy the raw material was,' remarked Haag, 'I let it stand in the press overnight.' The corresponding Juffer received slightly shorter pre-fermentative skin contact. (Two-thirds of the volume was fermented and aged in cask.).June/2017Wine Advocate 92 points - Picked in one passage after mid-October, the 2015 Brauneberg Juffer Sonnenuhr Riesling Trocken GG is very clear, deep and mineral on the aromatic nose; there are ripe Riesling and concentrated lemon aromas intermixed with crushed stone flavors. Macerated for three to 12 hours, fermented and aged in stainless steel oak fuder (50/50), this silky textured and very elegant Riesling cru is full-bodied, round and well structured. It reveals a delicate, mineral freshness with a lingering salinity and a fine (tannin) grip. Still young, this Sonnenuhr will surely benefit from further bottle aging..Stephan Reinhardt, April/2017James Suckling 91 points - As usual, this is more backward than the Juffer (which surrounds this site on three sides), and combines the high notes of that wine with more depth and an earthy touch.

This wine is from United States, California region, Santa Cruz County sub-region and Santa Cruz Mountains appellation. In the late... 1940s and early 1960s, Martin Ray planted six acres of chardonnay vines propagated from a Burgundian selection grown in the original Paul Masson vineyard. We now farm 20 acres of estate chardonnay, from which we produce 1,200 to 2,000 cases per year. Yields average one to two tons per acre, far below the average for chardonnay in California.. The full bodied Estate Chardonnay displays fine underlying acidity and a long finish. Hints of cardamom, anise and hazelnut add interest to the core lemon, mineral flavors. Of all Mount Eden's estate-grown wines, the Chardonnay is most in need of further bottle aging at release, requiring an additional two to four years to fully reveal its true character. Many vintages are still fresh and enjoyable after fifteen years, explaining why Mount Eden Estate Chardonnay is considered one of California's longest-lived white wines.

This wine is from South Africa, Coastal Region region, Stellenbosch sub-region. The grapes were picked in four different passes in... order to achieve optimum ripeness and balance in the final wine. The grapes were handpicked in the early morning hours, with bunch selection done in the vineyard. Fruit was cooled down and then gently pressed, whole bunch, and the juice was settled overnight without the use of settling enzymes. Fermentation occurred naturally in French oak barrels (25% new), using indigenous yeasts. The wine was aged on its lees in barrel for 11 months, without any topping or batonage.. This has range, depth and definition, with a racy ginger spine piercing the lovely core of Jonagold apple, jasmine, citrus oil and white peach.

This wine is from United States, California region, North Coast sub-region. Made at Schramsberg from the red wine grape Pinot Noir..., this is a delicious, fruitful, full-bodied sparkling wine. Schramsberg pioneered the Blanc de Noirs style in the United States, releasing the first such American sparkler in 1967.Hugh Johnson wrote in his Picket Encyclopedia of Wine: Schramsberg*** a dedicated specialist: California's best sparkling. Blanc de Noirs outstanding.' The 1992 Blanc de Noirs won a gold medal at the World Wine Championships; the 1996 and 1997 both won gold medals at the Orange County Fair.. Making a white wine from a red grape requires great care: handpicked fruit, early morning harvest, optimal fruit maturity, delicate pressing. A balance of bright flavors, crisp acidity, and minimal tannins is achieved. Three years of yeast contact knits all the elements together in a mature, toasty style. Blanc de Noirs presents layers of roasted almond, caramel, cherry and spice. The wine is especially appealing with lighter meats such as veal and pork tenderloin, caviar and smoked fish, risotto with chanterelles and vegetables, or cheese souffles.
