Alain de la Treille Rose d'Anjou 2019

Alain de la Treille Rose d'Anjou is made from 50% Gamay, 50% Grolleau

The Rosé d'Anjou AOC, also known as Anjou Rosé AOC, produces medium-sweet rosés. Wines are made predominantly from Grolleau, with percentages of Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Gamay, Malbec and Pineau d'Aunis permitted. Anjou soils reflect the geological identity of its border position between Armorican and Parisian basins. The terroirs consist of metamorphic and crystalline rocks (schist, sandstone) known as Anjou Noir, and ‘Terres Blanches’ (white earth) limestone known as Anjou Blanc. The AOC covers 1,890 hectares (4,668 acres).

The Grolleau grape derives its name from the French word ‘grolle’, meaning crow – a reflection of the dark black color of the grapes.

Crisp and refreshing with vibrant aromas of strawberry and raspberry. Juicy and well-balanced with a long finish.

Selective juice extraction to preserve color & aromas. Temperature controlled fermentation is followed by aging on the fine lees. No malolactic fermentation; no oak.


To be served chilled (10°C/50°F) with barbecued meats, salads, any spicy food, poultry dishes and of course appetizers.

Review:

"Limpid orange-pink. Sharply focused raspberry and cherry scents pick up a suave floral quality with air. Offers nicely concentrated red fruit and candied rose flavors; a late jolt of spiciness adds lift and firm cut. Closes long and precise, with repeating florality and a subtle wisp of anise. This Rosé is rich enough to work with full-flavored dishes but it displays a surprisingly light touch and a tangy edge that make it enjoyable by itself. - Josh Raynolds"

Review:


"The most interesting rosé from Jaume is the company's 2018 Tavel Le Crétacé, a blend of 60% Grenache, 20% Syrah and 10% each Cinsault and Mourvèdre, sourced from a single supplier. Berry-scented, floral and fun, it's medium to full-bodied, even a bit creamy on the palate, then fresh, zesty and spicy on the long finish, Tasted twice (once blind), with consistent notes. - Joe Czerwinski"

Review:

"This impeccably run estate makes great wines from throughout the Rhône Valley, and their rosés are always terrific. The 2019 Tavel Le Crétacé has a complex bouquet of wild strawberries, cherry blossoms, and spring flowers. This carries to a medium-bodied Tavel that has terrific overall balance, a clean, refreshing texture, and a crisp finish. It’s a richer, balanced, dry rosé geared for the dinner table. I’d be happy to have it on my table any time over the coming 6-12 months."

- Wine Enthusiast (September 2020), 91 pts

"Lean and focused, the Le Crétacé rosé from Tavel reveals pomegranate and red cherry skin on the nose. Distinctly dry on the palate with a firm acidic backbone, pure flavors, and a lingering finish. A superb pairing with roast salmon. A blend of 60% Grenache, 30% Syrah and 10% Mourvèdre made saignée method with no malo. 14.5% alc"

- International Wine Review (May 2020), 91 pts

"Brilliant orange-pink. Mineral- and spice-inflected raspberry and blood orange aromas are complemented by a suave lavender nuance. Smooth and focused on the palate, offering concentrated red berry and citrus fruit flavors braced by a spine of juicy acidity. Shows excellent tenacity on the mineral-tinged finish, which leaves a hint of candied flowers behind. All stainless steel. - Josh Raynolds" - Antonio Galloni's Vinous (June 2020), 91 pts

Alexandre Monmousseau Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Personelle 2010 (half-bottle)

Alexandre Monmousseau Gaudrelle Vouvray Reserve Personelle 2010 is made from 100 percent Chenin Blanc

Fine Chenin Blanc typicity, with aromas of ripe apples and honeyed notes. Rich, smooth, rounded palate with great structure and weight. Has the acidity to support ageing for 10 years.

Review:

"A luscious sweet wine, very honeyed and liquorous. As a complete contrast, the wine has that intense acidity that is the hallmark of Loire sweet wines. The combination is a fragrant nectar that will benefit from aging. — R.V."

"An impressive first release for this all-Pinot Noir bubbly from Paraje Altamira, aged for 18 months on its lees before disgorgement. It’s a creamy, bready, well-balanced style, with fine bubbles and a dry, palate-cleansing finish. A fizz to watch. 2017-22"
- Tim Atkin (Argentina Special Report 2017), 92 pts

"Perhaps with the same sort of structural power that Altamira reds possess, this sparkling rosé shows something immutable in body, lively texture, bracing acidity. The wine spent 18 months on the lees and this, no doubt, provides flavor complexities well beyond the fruit, but still the fruit predominates with intense aromas, substantial, and crisp, lively acidity. If what you’re looking for is a sparkler for carpaccio or roast beef, this is it."

"Washington's Columbia Valley isn't known for the Sangiovese grape variety, nor for rosés. As a result, Waterbrook's lightly floral bottling is a nice surprise".

Winery: Waterbrook Winery

The Waterbrook Winery Estate
Waterbrook Winery was founded in 1984 by Eric and Janet Rindal and is located in Washington State's lovely Walla Walla Valley. This name was chosen to complement the translation from Nez Perce Indian dialect for the name Walla Walla, meaning "running water". Production has slowly increased to a total of 30,000 cases annually.

“Nearly definitive Washington State winery; top choice for genuinely expressive wines of moderate prices.” - Anthony Dias' blue pocket guide to wine 2006

The
Waterbrook Winery Vineyards
The region is characterized by dry, arid conditions with long daylight hours and cool nights, which allow the grapes to ripen at a slow, even pace. The Walla Walla Valley is slightly cooler and wetter. The regions must all rely completely on irrigation throughout the season as rainfall averages only 8 to 11 inches annually. Grapes are purchased from some of Columbia Valley's finest and oldest vineyards. Since exceptional wines can only be made from exceptional fruit, close contact with growers is maintained throughout the year. 
- Red Mountains, Yakima Valley: The area's southwestern slope has produced some of the most coveted grapes in the Columbia Valley and sealed its reputation as one of the top sights for superlative fruit in Washington State. The unique combination of topography, soil, altitude and microclimate produce the perfect environment for red wine grapes. 

- Waterbrook Vineyard, Walla Walla Valley: Planted in the spring of 1998 this twelve acre chardonnay vineyard is in the heart of the Walla Walla Valley. The vineyard's growth is consistent and uniform but not overly vegitative, showing great potential in the years ahead. It's first harvest is successful with low tonage and exceptional flavored fruit.
