Product Description

Barrel fermented in mixed age French oak producing a medium clear lemon color. This wine has a luminescent, straw color with a subtle sheen. Meyer lemon, white nectarine, baking spice, and salt water taffy on the nose. The palette offers up warm oak spice, sandalwood, and stone fruit.

With a lemon-butter-cream texture, this wine is lush yet still very bright and fresh. Lively acidity, with a custard type of roundness/richness, and the warm oak spice follows through on the pallet. Delicious balance between richness and freshness.

As with all our whites, this wine will reward you for cellaring.

Winery: Big Table Farm Winery

In 2006 we moved to Oregon from Napa, where Brian had been making wine for ten years. We bought property in the Willamette Valley (about an hour outside of Portland).

This Oregon adventure is inspired by our desire to grow grapes, make wine, and to have the space for all of Clare’s animals and Brian’s wacky projects.

We named our farm and winery after our goal to provide a gracious and welcoming table for ourselves and friends, with a cornucopia of hand-crafted food and wine.

And now, almost ten years after we took the leap, we have developed this land into a working farm and built a barn and winery. We feel lucky to live here and we are still in awe and deeply grateful for the chance to build this dream and share it with you!

 

In 1996 Brian worked his first harvest. Having studied fermentation science at Davis, he took to the process of winemaking easily and loved it. 

While working in Napa Valley, Brian learned from some of California's most esteemed winemakers and wineries - Turley Wine cellars, Neyers Vineyards, Blankiet Estate and Marcassin, just to name a few. Brian also spent a harvest working in Australia at Trevor Jones Fine Wines. 

These varied experiences have contributed to Brian’s ability to optimize each vintage.

Ecard Maurice Savigny Beaune Premier Cru Les Serpentieres 2015

Elegant and concentrated wine filled with cherry and wild berry fruits. Spicy notes. Very good structure and acidity. This delicious Pinot Noir is a real treat. Excellent now, it can also reward cellaring for a few years.

Review:

"Moving to the reds from Lirac, the estate releases two cuvées: the base la Dame Rousse and the flagship La Reine des Bois. The 2015 Lirac la Dame Rousse is a top effort from this appellation that has classic, mineral-laced aromas and flavors of blackberries, mulberries, crushed rocks, graphite and peppery herbs. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated, it has lively acidity, notable tannic grip and plenty of length on the finish, all suggesting it will evolve nicely. - Jeb Dunnuck"

Chartron & Trebuchet Macon-Villages Chardonnay 2015

White gold in color with silver highlights. The notes of chalk and limestone make it a very tense and mineral wine. The palate is complex with aromas of lemon and orange blossom. The freshness is ensured by a good acidity that pleasantly wakes up the taste buds.

Ideal as an aperitif, but also with poultry and veal in creamy sauce, creamy risotto with meat or fish, grilled fish, cold antipasti and ratatouille, mixed salads, sushi. Perfect with Goat cheese.

Review:

Tasted as a barrel sample, the 2015 Lirac Cuvee Reservee is a beauty. Notes of dried Provencal garrigue, cedar, blackberries, blueberries and roasted herbs all jump from the glass of this concentrated, rich and seriously endowed Lirac that has a stacked mid-palate, rocking levels of concentration, ripe tannin and a great finish. It's another superstar wine to drink over the coming 7-8 years. - Wine Advocate 90-92 Points

Big Table Farm Williamette Valley Pinot Noir 2014

The use of whole cluster fermentation is the back bone of this wine. Lots of leather and oak spice on the nose. Black cherry, dried cranberry, and pomegranate, as well as cardamom and anise. Palm sugar, hay, clove and sandalwood on the palate. Very fresh and bright, approachable wine.

 


Intriguing aromas of spices, meat, dried berries and lemons follow through to a full body, velvety tannins and a fresh and fruity finish. Linear backbone to this generous wine. Drink or hold. - James Suckling 95 Points

Label shows Maple seeds drawn by Clare. The original plantings were vines obtained from Charles Coury so their origin and clonal type is unknown. 40 plus year-old vines. Bottled unfined and unfiltered. · Moderately light reddish purple color in the glass. Welcoming aromas of cherry, cardamom spice and toasty oak. Light to mid weight flavors of cherry, crystallized raspberry, cranberry, spice and smoke. Good energy and freshness, with surprising mid palate presence, gentle tannins and some finishing goodness.

Paradigm Cabernet Franc 2014

This Cabernet Franc is black cherry red in color with aromas of blueberry jam and white pepper spiciness. With wonderful ripeness we were able to make one of our best Cabernet Francs. The wine is very lush across the palate with a silky softness and sweet impression of ripe blueberry fruit. Tannins are very moderate with a nice light texture in the mid palate. This is an easy drinking Cabernet Franc, rich and complete and very enjoyable.

Paradigm Cabernet Franc is made from 76% Cabernet Franc,  13% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot, 3% Petit Verdot
