Mont Tauch Les Garrigues Grenache Blanc 09 – 14.57 – Vin de Pays du Torgan – Languedoc-Roussillon. 88 Wine Spectator… “tropical and white fruit notes, lead by ripe peach, guava and mango. Lush, spicy finish features plenty of vanilla and cream. Drink now thru 2014. Commended by Decanter World Wine Awards 2010. Mineral & rich. Great to see a 100% Grenache Blanc. Interesting pepper & spice notes for a white wine. Light beeswax, peach, pear, and golden delicious apple. Enough to be a crossover wine for California Chardonnay lovers. Creamy. Vanilla & peaches come out more on the finish.
Prieure Bourgogne Rouge 08 – 15.97 – At the entrance of the sleepy village of Savigny les Beaune resides this lovely estate. A family affair, the vines and cellar are tended by Jean-Michel and his son Stephen, whilst Yvonne manages commerce. In their careful hands they are excellent stewards of these beautiful parcels of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and a tiny bit of Aligote. This Bourgogne Pinot Noir is from a tiny 2 hectare plot just outside the Savigny appellation. It extols the virtues of pure Pinot fruit with captivating ripe perfume and soft silky balance.
