Frisky French

Saturday, October 20th, 2pm

Saturday we frolic around France, tasting here and there with wild abandon.  Join us as we hop and jump from north to south, from the cool climate of Alsace to the warm hills of the Mediterranean.  It is a tasty adventure.
 
2017 Kuentz Bas , Alsace Blanc $12
60% Sylvaner, 15% Muscat, 15% Auxerrois, 10% Gewürztraminer
Kuentz-Bas was established by the Kuentz family in 1795.   It sits at one of the highest points in Alsace, and the vineyards stretch out from the village over an area of ten hectares. Their traditional blend shows notes of very ripe pear dominate the nose. The palate shows crisp acidity to aid the spicy pear fruit.  It is bone dry with smoky yet bright flavors.
 
2017 Roger Nevue, Sancerre, Cote des Embouffants  $22
Sauvignon Blanc
“The Clos des Bouffants, the primary Neveu family Sancerre holding, is a steep, due-south exposed, limestone vineyard located less than a half mile from the Neveu cellar. The wine shows aromas of ripe rhubarb and gooseberry leap from the pale lemon juice, along with hints of lime, chalk, and flint. It has a mineral texture with high acidity, and vibrant green fruits follow through to a long, lingering finish.
 
2015 Regis Bouvier, Bourgogne Rouge $20
Pinot Noir
From a 1.5-hectare vineyard of 35-year-old vines situated in clay and limestone soils, this is a bright red cherry-leaning-towards-plum fruit, super juicy Pinot. There are lots of ways to spin this, as a hedonistic red Burgundy, as a delicious Pinot Noir. Experience the touch and finesse, the Burgundian soul, the pure deliciousness of a true Pinot bargain.
 
2016 Ensedune, Couteaux de Enserune $10
Marselan
At the edge of the Mediterranean Sea, the Oppidum Romain d’Ensérune dominates the terroir of the Ensédune wines. It is characterized by one of the warmest and driest climates of France located at the west of Béziers. Proud of a thousand-year-old tradition, the Ensérune winegrowers were keen to develop their vineyards by acclimatizing grape varieties from various horizons. This Marselan has lively, balsamic, small berry fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry, wild strawberry) aromas, with a lovely, mellow concentration. It’s a perfect easy-drinking wine.
 
2014 Michel Gassier, Nostre Pais Rouge, Costières de Nîmes $19
35% Grenache, 25% Carignan, 20% Syrah, 15% Mourvèdre, 5% Cinsault
One of the bigger, richer versions of this cuvee, the 2014 Nostre Païs was fermented with one-third whole clusters and aged in equal parts 500-liter barrels and concrete tanks. Its deep ruby/purple color is followed by terrific notes of blackberries, blackcurrants, roasted herbs and licorice. It has serious mid-palate depth, integrated acidity and present, yet ripe tannin, all suggesting it will evolve gracefully for at least 4-6 years.  Organic

Tuscany

Travignoli was founded in the 1700’s and has been operating by the Busi family since the 1800s.

2012 Villa Travignoli, Tegolaia Rufina Reserva  $16
The Chianti Rùfina Riserva Tegolaia is made entirely from Sangiovese, harvested and selected in the first week of October. The evolution of this Chianti Riserva takes place for 18 months in wooden barrels, where the product matures its organoleptic characteristics and its own character.  The wine has aromas of strong fruity notes, supported by the presence of spicy and sapid notes.

A classic and complex Brunello.  Tilled earth, ripe dark-skinned berry, leather and menthol aromas show this wine’s Sangiovese pedigree.

Firm, ripe tannins provide the framework.

Ugni Blanc
While most sparkling wines from Saumur in the Loire Valley are made with Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay, the Blanc de Blanc is 100% Ugni Blanc.

The Estival is a blend, but it’s fermented all together.  The Chardonnay is harvested unripe like in “Champagne” to get the high acidity to balance the fully ripe Gewurztraminer and the Moscato Bianco’s fruity flavors. You can feel the sweetness of the Gewurz and Moscato and the sharp acidity of the Chardonnay with lots of different flavors in between.
 
2018 Pie de Palo Malbec $13
100% Malbec
Pie de Palo is situated 20 km south of Mendoza City, Argentina, in Cruz de Piedra district, Maipu County, where the climate is moderate in the summer and winter months.  This Malbec is made in stainless steel tanks as opposed to oak, so the fruit flavors are bright and fresh. Cherry, raspberry, and other red fruits make it a very versatile Malbec.
 
2016 Apaltagua, Gran Reserva Envero Carmenere  $18
90% Carmenere, 10% Cabernet Sauvignon
The grapes in our Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero come from our own 60 hectare vineyards in Apalta in the Colchagua Valley in Chile.  Apaltagua Gran Reserva Envero shows ripe blackberries, tobacco, and spices. It possesses a remarkable combination of ripe fruit notes and oak mixed with vanilla. Its flavor is juicy, full, and concentrated, highlighting the softness in the mouth and the raspberry and plum tannins with a touch of tobacco. It has a long and lingering finish.
 
2016 In Sheep’s Clothing Cabernet Sauvignon $19

In Sheep’s Clothing delivers a ripeness of fruit flavors while preserving the acidity that gives the wine a slice of freshness.
