Domaine Ricard Touraine Les Trois Chenes 2019

Blend: 100% Sauvignon Blanc 

Browsers Club

 

This wine drinks well above its price point. Perhaps more like a Sancerre than the neighbors there would be comfortable admitting, this is a very classy white wine and among the best whites we have ever offered for the price. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from old vines (the oldest planted in 1947) on a gentle slope near the top of the hill. The vineyards face directly south, and the soil is clay and limestone. The grapes are hand-harvested and pass through a sorting table. Yields average about 35 hl/ha. The wine is barrel-fermented for 3 months, then aged in barrel for 8 months, with lees-stirring every 4 days or so. 

A delicious mouthful of Sauvignon Blanc that overachieves not only its appellation but also those to the east, notably Sancerre. Great texture, bright white peach fruit, classy vanilla notes and good underlying acidity make this an absolute pleasure to drink.

 

Domaine de la Rouletiere Jean-Marc Gilet 2020 Vouvray Sec "Cuvee Silex"

Blend: 100% Chenin blanc

Dry Chenin Blanc is a thing of beauty. This one is made with 100% Chenin Blanc that comes from clay soils littered with small pieces of silex.  It is aged in stainless steel tanks and older barrels (+ 10 years old). This medium to full-bodied wine has notes of apple, fresh almonds, peach, and citrus fruit.

Imagine all the pairings with spicy foods and savory summer grilling without any perceptible sweetness. This wine is my go-to for sausages (especially the jalapeno and cheese kind). Also goes well with broiled fish and goat cheese.

 

Due Santi Cammin 2020

Blend: 100% Merlot


 

This is Cape Cod spritz masquerading as wine. Massive doses of cranberry and a little hint of citrus and pepper make this a perfect aperitivo. Get out the corn nuts and the Lays and pop the corks (just give it a good pull) for your next football playoff party or crush this down on Thursday when you can’t take another minute of WFH. That’s mostly how we drink it around here.



Blend:
100% Merlot 

This stands up to some of the best rosé wines on the market. Our little Merlot movie star pink wine is for those that know the reward in beginning an evening with a soft touch. But definitely want to transition into red. This wine when taken from cold to cool in 30-40 minutes becomes so many delightful things. However, with that hint of volcanic soil and the freshness of red berries we always know it is Due Santi. Our best vintage yet. 


Chateau Bonnin Lussac St. Emilion 2016

Blend: 95% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Franc

 
Browsers Club Product

I've always been a sucker for a great St. Emilion. However, most are prohibitively expensive. This wine solves my hankering and delivers exceptional depth and quality for the price.
This is a small producer in Lussac Saint Emilion, one of the satellite appellations outside of the more famous Saint Emilion. Soils between the two are similar, with a mixture of limestone, clay, and sand.  The wines of Lussac usually over-deliver for their considerably lower prices than the wines from their big brother.  Husband and wife team Patricia and Phillipe Bonnin purchased the 9 hectare estate in 1997.  The vineyards are an average age of 25 years old.
Made with a blend of 95% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon, this wine shows concentrated cherry and plum flavors, a hint of tobacco, vanilla, and clove.  The tannins are well-integrated on the finish, making this wine a wonderful candidate to accompany hearty stews, a veal chop with mushrooms, or roasted pork tenderloin.

 

Domaine Berthoumieu Madiran Charles de Batz 2015 

Blend: 90% Tannat, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon

 

Browsers Club

 

This is a really big and meaty wine. Perhaps the biggest red we have ever offered. I traveled to this part of France with Charles the year this wine was harvested. I became enamored with Madiran on that seminal journey to SW France. This is one of the best wines in the region. I will let Charles’ words speak for this beauty.

The domaine’s top red wine is the cuvée Charles de Batz, which was the original name of d'Artignan. The wine is composed of 90% Tannat with 10% Cabernet Sauvignon from vines that are 50-100 years old. After being completely destemmed, the Cabernet and Tannat are fermented separately in cement tanks. During this time, a bit of micro-oxygenation or microboullage takes place. The wine then goes into oak (50% new) in an underground cellar where it also undergoes malolactic fermentation. After 12 months in wood, it is blended and bottled after a very light filtration.

Very ripe, rich Madiran that takes no prisoners. This wine succeeds in obtaining more fruit than tannin! The color is nearly opaque—wine doesn't get much darker than this. It displays notes of black fruit (blackcurrant and blackberry) along with just a hint of red fruit. There is a cedar-like creaminess to the oak which is extremely well-integrated. Tannins pick up on the finish but, let's face it, this is Madiran and that is to be expected. These tannins seem to dissolve when the wine is matched with richly flavored meats like leg of lamb, duck, goose, or game.
