Winery: Monmousseau (Alexandre)

The Alexandre Monmousseau Estate
Chateau Gaudrelle is owned by fifth generation winemaker Alexandre Monmousseau. Alexandre's father, Armand Monmousseau, is the former head of his family's sparkling wine firm in Montrichard. Alexandre, intense and confident, received his schooling in Beaune and is one of the leaders of the Sec-Tendre (soft-dry) movement that includes producers like Huet and Champalou..

Monmousseau also produces Kysela's famous Vouvray, Clos le Vigneau.  

The AOC of Vouvray covers 9 villages:
     • Vouvray
     • Vernou sur Brenne
     • Noizay
     • Chançay
     • Reugny
     • Parçay
     • Meslay
     • Rochecorbon
     • Tours-Sainte Radegonde, which is the birth place of the vineyard (end of the 4th century).

"It is amazing how good a value Vouvray has remained despite the fact that it is such a popular wine from Loire. The appellation was founded in 1936 and covers nine villages in the region. You can find sparkling wines at this estate – sec (dry) or demi-sec (basically off-dry, although for most consumers these would be considered dry) – as well as their sweet wines, which vary considerably in their degrees of sweetness and are referred to as moelleux. All four of the following cuvees performed brilliantly in my tasting." - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (June 2012)

The Alexandre Monmousseau Vineyard
Today the Monmousseau family farms 14 hectares (34.6 acres) of land: 6 hectares for Clos le Vigneau, 8 hectares for Château Gaudrelle. Clos Le Vigneau is a single vineyard from an area known as “les Gues d'Amant” or “Lover’s Gap”. Most of the vines were planted in 1929. The soil is a mixture of argilo-calcaire, silex and gravel. Alexandre Monmousseau believes in low yields for concentration and flavor. The grapes are hand harvested. Pressing is long and slow, fermentation is in stainless steel with two rackings and a light filtration before bottling.

Review:

(from a south-facing vineyard planted on bluish-green compact clay): Precise but subdued aromas of pineapple, lemon peel, orange zest and flowers, plus a suggestion of white truffle. Very suave and fine-grained, showing superb inner-mouth energy and floral lift to the delicate lemon and orange flavors. Still youthfully imploded but already conveys terrific fruit intensity. Not an exuberant style but silky, saline and deep. The alcohol here is a natural 13.5%. - Stephen Tanzer 90-92

SonVida Malbec 2013

Vintage Closeout  Sale

 

SonVida Malbec 2013 is made from 95% Malbec and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon

The most challenging of years yielded a great harvest, and a magnificent wine.  Frost in September, just as our Malbec was in budbreak.  Then a fierce Zonda wind in early November, just as the vineyard was flowering.  The result?  Yields low, BUT quality high.

SonVida Malbec 2013 celebrates intense fruit, plum, blackberry, even dark chocolate notes, with the optimal acidity and smooth tannins that are so typical of the award-winning Altamira district in the Uco Valley of Mendoza.  Above all, this latest Malbec from the Alegira vineyard boasts rare balance - a hint of the Old World in the best of the New World.


Review:

"Sonia and David Smith, a British couple that settled in Mendoza, began producing wine in 2007 in Altamira, in the Uco Valley. Their 2013 shows the most refreshing and fruity side of malbec, the crisp red fruit flavor and violet notes lifted by its effusive energy. Firm acidity and prickly tannins suggest a match with venison."

"It's rare to find a vinho verde – the famously light and refreshing "green" white wine of Portugal – that isn't delightful, but this is one of the best of the breed. And there's no better time to quaff these wines than in the spring and summer. This version is lightly effervescent, with a lively acidity that wakes up the palate. It combines lime and peach flavors with a whiff of sea breeze. Somehow it manages to be both ethereal and penetrating. The ultimate picnic wine? Perhaps. It begs to be drunk outdoors."
- The Baltimore Sun (April 23rd 2012)
