Grand Veneur Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc La Fontaine 2017


Grand Veneur Chateauneuf Du Pape Blanc La Fontaine is made from 100% Roussane.

Yellow-gold color. The nose is rich in aromas of citrus fruit, tropical fruit, quince and honey, with a touch of vanilla. On the palate, the same aromas appear together with a fatness combining exotic fruit and vanilla : the wine is rich, generous and elegant, with extraordinary length. "La Fontaine" is often considerated to be one of the best Châteauneuf du Pape white, and it is by definition a superb gastronomy wine.

Best between 1 and 8 years.

 


Review:

Limpid gold. Ripe citrus and pit fruit aromas are complemented by suggestions of candied ginger, pungent flowers and sweet butter. Fleshy and broad on the palate, offering impressively concentrated peach, pear nectar and tangerine flavors that tighten up slowly on the back half. In a hefty but energetic style, showing impressive clarity and minerally thrust on a very long, tactile finish. - Josh Raynolds"

- Antonio Galloni's Vinous (October 2018), 93 pts

"The 2017 Chateauneuf du Pape Blanc La Fontaine is all Roussanne, marked by scents of flowers and tropical fruit. A blend of barrel and tank-fermented portions, it's full-bodied, plush and rich, picking up complex hints of citrus, honey, clove, baking spices and pencil shavings on the long finish. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. - Joe Czerwinski"  - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue 238, August 31st 2018), 92-95 pts

Johann Michel Saint-Peray 2017

Made from 50% Marsanne and 50% Roussanne

Johann Michel Saint Peray Blanc has a shining golden yellow color. 

The wine is aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach.
The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.

Average age of the vines is 15 years old. 

Johann Michel owns 0.5 hectare (1.24 acre) of Saint Peray.

 

All planted on Granitic soil, with some schist vein. Aromatic with white flowers such as acacia and honeysuckle. In the mouth, you will find some lanolin flavors as well as apricot and yellow ripe peach. The finish is long, delicate and balanced.
It is waxy and very White Burgundy like.
 
Waxy and Burgundy like being the most important part of tasting wines in Saint-Peray. Most whites are thin and lacking interest. 
 
Great with fresh oysters, Grilled fish, Bresse Chicken cooked in a creamy sauce with morels ...

Review:

"The 2017 Saint-Péray Blanc from Michel checks in as an even split of Marsanne and Roussanne that was brought up all in neutral oak. It’s an outstanding wine as well as a terrific value. Notes of orchard fruits, honeyed minerality, white flowers, and hints of brioche all give way to a medium to full-bodied concentrated, yet elegant Saint-Péray that has good acidity, notable balance, and a great finish. Drink it any time over the coming decade."

Mordoree Lirac Blanc La Plume du Peintre 2017


What we are offering today is the holy grail of the Rhone Valley: Mordoree Lirac Rouge Plume de Peintre 2016. This wine is only produced in special vintages, 2012 being the last and now 2016 which is by far a superior Rhone vintage. The 2016 vintage has caused a feeding frenzy amongst collectors.

So, we have a wine rarely produced from one of Rhone’s top estates and the near perfect vintage combined with only 10 cases imported. All of which make this wine the most sought after wine not only in our portfolio, but in all of the Rhone Valley.It is no surprise this is considered the finest Lirac produced since the Delorme family of Mordoree was the force behind the rejuvenation of the Lirac region two decades ago.

A little research on the 2012 vintage shows it recently sold at auction for $170 euro a bottle! Make no mistake, this is the ultimate collector’s wine and from a vintage that puts the Rhone on our radar once again.


Review:

Tasted a week before bottling, the 2017 Lirac Blanc la Plume du Peintre is a blend of five varieties and was barrel fermented and aged in new oak (six Saint-Martin barrels, to be precise). Honey and caramel notes adorn tropical fruit, with hints of pineapple and guava framed and supported by orange and lime zest. It's full-bodied and rich, with a long, lively finish. - Wine Advocate 92-94 Points
