Review:


"Limpid yellow. A wild, expansive bouquet displays an array of citrus pith and pit fruits, succulent and (once-) illicit herbs, dried flowers and honey, along with a smoky mineral flourish the emerges with air. Stains the palate with juicy pear nectar, candied fennel, chamomile and bitter quinine flavors that take a sweeter turn on the back half. The impressively long, chewy, focused finish echoes the floral note and leaves a refreshingly bitter pear skin note behind. Color me impressed. I'd love to see this wine, when it gets bottled, up against some high-end Châteauneuf-du-Pape whites. Raised in barriques. - Josh Raynolds"

Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Casse Tetes 2018

Chavy-Chouet Meursault Les Casse Tetes is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

A "casse tête" in French is a conundrum or puzzle and the name of this plot refers to the hardness of the soil and the challenge it was for our ancestors to plant vines on this pebbly limestone ground.
Surface Area : 1.5 acres (0.6 hectares)
Age of the vines: 45 years old
Planting density : 10,000 vines per hectares
Soil Type : Limestone
Tasting notes: Concentrated, powerful, and lively, Les Casse-Têtes is the very quintessence of the Meursault appellation. Its sophistication, structure, and assured elegance reflect the character of the soil.

The 2018 Meursault Les Casses-Têtes comes from vines on rocky soils, less decomposed than other climats, where Romaric Chavy explained it is crucial to pick at exactly the right time. This has an intense bouquet of crushed stone, orange peel and light oyster shell aromas. The palate is taut and fresh on the entry, delivering a fine bead of acidity and tangerine and light mango notes, and spicier than the Les Narvaux, with a little more cohesion on the persistent finish. This is superb.

Corne Loup Tavel Rose 2019

Corne Loup Tavel Rose is made from  60% Grenache, 15% Cinsault, 10% Syrah, 15% mix of Mourvèdre, Clairette & Carignan

Elegant, refreshing, food-friendly and versatile, this Tavel offers mouth-watering aromas of strawberry and berry pie.


Corne Loup Tavel represents the pinnacle of the rose pyramid quality wise that can be achieved in the Southern Rhone. The town of Tavel has been famous for its rose wine since the time of the Popes in Avignon (1300's). Tavel is about 2,300 acres in size and produces about 500,000 cases yearly of 9 liter cases, plus can age for 2-3 years, unlike many other roses. Produced from a blend of  Grenache, Cinsualt, Syrah, Mourvedre, Cinsault and Carignan, the wine comes from a famous sub-parcel called the Plateau de Vallongue between Tavel and Lirac AOC's.


The 20 hectare-vineyards are located in the hamlets of Oliver, Campet, Vestides and Vallongue. The Tavel from this producer is a blend of all 3 soils types you can find in the AOC:


  • Vestides is located West of the village of Tavel. The terroir is made of flat white stones.
  • Vallongue is located Northeast of the Village of Tavel. The terroir is similar to Chateauneuf du Pape, with a lot of pebble stones. (Galets Roules).
  • Olivet is located South-East of the village of Tavel. The terroir is made of sandy soils and some stones.


Dry and lively, it is an ideal wine for barbecues as it makes a wonderful sipper that's also capable of matching with a wide variety of summer foods, including grilled chicken, seafood and summer salads




 

Product Description

Oliver Mango is 100% Naturally flavored wine made with light honey and fresh mango.
Awarded Gold Medal, Best of Varietal and Best of Class - Jerry D. Mead's International Wine Competition

Winery: Oliver Winery

The Oliver Estate
Oliver Winery started in the 1960's as a hobby in the basement of Indiana University law professor William Oliver. His enthusiasm for making wine led him to establish a vineyard north west of Bloomington. Soon the flourishing vines produced grapes far in excess of his needs as a hobby winemaker, and he began plans to open a commercial winery.

Professor Oliver was instrumental in passing legislation allowing for the creation of small wineries in Indiana . The Indiana Small Winery Act passed in 1971 and Oliver Winery opened to the public in 1972. Initially sales were modest, but grew quickly after we began making Camelot Mead, a light wine made from honey.

Professor Oliver's son, Bill, took charge of the winery in 1983. He focused on enhancing the visitor experience by increasing wine quality and variety, establishing our gardens, and providing great customer service. Sales grew steadily in the 80's reaching 25,000 cases by 1990.

In 1993 Kathleen Oliver joined the winery as General Manager. This allowed Bill to focus on winemaking and viticulture and Creekbend Vineyard was started in 1994. Retail sales continued to grow and allowed for the construction of a new tasting room in 1997. By 2000 sales had reached 60,000 cases.

While retail sales marked the greatest growth prior to 2000, the years after saw tremendous growth in wine sold through wholesale channels. Major facility expansions occurred in 2002 and 2007 making Oliver Winery one of the largest wineries in the eastern United States. In 2002, interstate expansion began as Kentucky became the first state outside of Indiana to offer Oliver wines. By 2008 we had distribution in 14 states. In 2008 total case sales exceeded 270,000 cases.

The Vineyard
They farm 35 acres of vineyard land called Creekbend Vineyard, located in Monroe County and sitting on a ridge top overlooking the Beanblossom Valley. The site, with moderately sloped, well-drained soil atop limestone bedrock, is part of the geographic region known as the Norman Uplands. The vineyards are a mix of vinifera (Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, as well as small experimental plantings of Merlot, Pinot Noir and Pinot Grigio), Native American varieties and interspecific hybrids (Chardonel, Marechal Foch, Chambourcin and Traminette).
