Product Description

Lush, dare I say creamy in texture? Black currant, rich, earth, cured meat, cold ash. Dark, delicious, earth bound wine. One of the best “the Rocks” has to offer.

Review:

A great expression of this variety, the 2017 Barbera Jack's Vineyard has a ripe yet savory nose of mulled red and black fruits, dried herbs, flowers, and new leather. Medium-bodied on the palate, with light, polished tannins and beautiful balance, it's another ethereal, elegant version of this cuvée to enjoy over the coming 7-8 years.

Winery: Charles Smith K Vintners

Located at the base of the Blue Mountains in Walla Walla (Washington State), Charles Smith opened his first winery, K Vintners, in December of 2001. The first release, 1999 K Syrah from Walla Walla Valley, initiated the style of winemaking that Charles continues today: small lots of single vineyard Syrahs and field blends of Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Tempranillo, and Viognier, all of which are hand-picked, fermented with naturally occurring yeasts and basket pressed.

Domaine Charles Pere & Fille Pommard is made from 100 percent Pinot Noir.

Wine-making

Tasting notes

A deep ruby-purple color, the Pommard nose reveals blackberry and blueberry notes with a touch of ripe plum and cherry pith. The mouth provides firm tannins that melt across the finish, with beautiful persistent structure good for

ageing.

Food pairing suggestions: It will goes very well with coq au vin, premium beef cuts and hard cheeses 


Soil : Ancient alluvial soils to well drained pebbly clay & limestone soils in the center slope, and mix of Jurassic marl, brown calcic and limestone soils

Exposition : South East

Surface area : 1.4 hectares

Yield : 40 hl/ha


Review:

This father-and-daughter estate, based in the Hautes Côtes de Beaune, also has vines in the Pommard in the Côte de Beaune proper. The wine, a blend from seven different parcels, is structured with some dense tannins as well as generous black fruits that will develop well over the next few years.”

Royal City for REAL. Perfume of great complexity. Camphor, black cherry and forest floor. All spice building on the palate. Suave and full of finesse with cured olive and wet earth. This is where elegance reigns supreme. – Winemaker, Charles Smith

Review:

This is fantastic with dark-berry, tar, black-pepper, stone and almond aromas and flavors. It’s full-bodied and tannic, yet polished and focused. A gorgeous finish. Shows balance and reserve. Lovely tannin tension. Drink after 2024.

Review:

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Vintage Selection has a deep garnet-purple color and features exuberant notes of crushed black cherries, mulberries and blackcurrant cordial with touches of unsmoked cigars, menthol, yeast extract and pencil shavings. Full-bodied, concentrated and opulent in the mouth, it has a solid line of plush tannins and plenty of backbone freshness to lift the generous fruit to a long fruity finish.

Charles Thomas Cotes du Rhone Blanc 2021

Charles Thomas Cotes du Rhone Blanc 70% Grenache Blanc, 15% Roussanne, 10% Marsanne, 5% Viognier

Bright yellow in color. The nose has a nice aromatic expression with white peach, apricot, candied lemon and lime notes. The palate is tasty and has a great generosity, a nice sweep on the attack and a crispy and acidulous finish.

Traditional vinification. The grapes are pressed upon their arrival in the winery. Low temperature fermentation in thermo-regulated stainless steel. Each grape variety is vinified separately and then assembled before ageing.  

Excellent wine for an aperitif. It pairs perfectly with grilled fish, platters of seafood and shellfish. It also goes well with simple dishes: pizzas, salads, tabbouleh or steamed vegetables. Cheeses: Goat cheese, Blue cheese and hard cheese such Comté.
