Saumaize Michelin Pouilly-Fuisse Pentacrine 2014

This is named after a 5-sided marine shell fossil often found in Pouilly-Fuissé.
Tropical fruit and citrus aromas are followed by complex citrus and apple flavors balanced by a refreshing acidity.

The vines are 40-45 years old of age on average. All of the wines are 100% barrel fermented and 100% M-L fermentation.

Saumaize Michelin Pouilly-Fuisse Ronchevats 2016

Saumaize Michelin Pouilly-Fuisse Ronchevats is made from 100 percent Chardonnay.

Powerful and warm wine offering quince and sweet fruit aromas. Thick and toasty. Rich and well textured.

Review:

"(from southwest-facing vines on soil rich in clay, with clumps of calcaire; done in fûts, including a bit of new oak): Bright medium yellow. Expressive, perfumed aromas of peachy fruit salad and spicy oak. Quite rich and thick but also vibrant and alive, with its subtle peachy high tones framed by bracing citrussy acidity. Needs time in bottle to harmonize and knit. This is not a particularly mineral site, according to Christine Saumaize. Incidentally, the family's 2016 Le Haut des Crays was scheduled to be bottled in November. - Stephen Tanzer"

Trione Cabernet Sauvignon Block 21 2015

Trione Cabernet Sauvignon Block 21 is made from 85% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9% Merlot, 2% Petit Verdot, 2% Malbec and 2% Cabernet Franc.

Aged 18 Months in French oak barrels (45% new)

Our Block 21 Cabernet is a single vineyard selection from the Trione Cloverdale Ranch, located on the western flank of the Mayacamas Mountains, in the northern portion of Alexander Valley. The vines, planted in 2001 with Bordeaux clone 337, grow in clay and sandy loam soils underlain with a high percentage of gravel. Cabernet Sauvignon grown in this ideal terroir develops deep, concentrated flavors and fine, smooth tannins.

Aromatic entry filled with hints of clove, allspice and nutmeg. The impression on the palate is soft, with silky tannins and lingering hints of mocha and cedar cigar box. Also present are the fruit profiles of plum, currant, blueberries and boysenberry. The finish is long and persistent which shows the beautiful balance of tannin/acidity/oak in the structure. This wine is showing the benefit of barrel and bottle age and is drinking perfectly now and will age gracefully for the next 5-10 years.
