Time to Hit the Library


Châteauneuf du Pape

Library Wines


Just in time for the holidays we have received a few bottles of older vintages from Château de Beaucastel, one of most renowned Châteauneuf makers.  Looking for a special bottle for a present, for that over the top dinner, or just looking to fill a hole or two in the cellar?  This might be for you. 

Buy one of each vintage

and take $52 off (that’s 10%)


2003 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape delivers a surprisingly fresh profile, yet ten years after the vintage, it is entering the early stages of maturity. Loaded with red and black currants, iron, beef blood, rolled stone, and garrigue on the nose, with no roasted fruit or over ripeness, it shines on the palate with excellent depth and richness. Medium to full-bodied, supple and integrated, with plenty of ripe fruit, it should continue to evolve for a handful of years.  WA 90pts.

2006 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Its dense plum/ruby/purple color is followed by a big, sweet perfume of black truffles, camphor, earth, incense, new saddle leather, and loads of peppery, blackberry, and herb-infused, meaty, black cherry fruit. Deep, full-bodied, and dense, with sweet tannin, this explosively rich Châteauneuf is a stronger effort than the 2005, 2004, or 2003.  WA 95pts

2009 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
Made from this estate’s classic blend, it possesses soft tannins as well as a silky, open-knit seductiveness, a dense plum/purple color and a beautiful perfume of smoky Provencal herbs intermixed with grilled steak juices, garrigue, kirsch and blue as well as black fruits. The wine is full-bodied, unctuously textured, and silky smooth (the latter characteristic being somewhat atypical for a young Beaucastel WA 94pts

2012 Château de Beaucastel Châteauneuf du Pape  $130
the 2012 Châteauneuf du Pape offers a full-bodied, decadent style to go with awesome black and blue fruits, garrigue, licorice, crushed flowers and violets. The purity here is truly something, and it has fabulous mid-palate concentration, building tannin and massive texture. Given all of the fruit and texture here, it will no doubt drink well in its youth, but it should still be alive and kicking after two decades as well.  96pts WA

Brighten Up the Weekend

It is a grey December here in Madrona.  But here at the wine shop we have somethings lined up to brighten your weekend.  Make a space in your plans to stop in and add a little glow to the grey.

Saturday, all the way from the Willamette Valley we have winemaker Chris Berg of Roots Wine Co. in the shop to show off his wines.  Stop by after 2 and meet the maker.
2018 Roots Sparkling Rosé $19
2017 Roots Estate Pinot Gris $16
2017 Roots Cancilla Vineyard Chardonnay $22
2018 “Klee” Pinot Noir $19
2017 Roots Crosshairs Cuveé Pinot Noir $22

Sunday, we are taking a trip back in time.  It has been 15 years since the movie Sideways first trashed Merlot drinkers, yet we still find Merlot much maligned (and very unfairly so.)  This Sunday we’ll tray and right that by pouring two Merlots that break the stereotype.  
 
2015 Cotarella Sodale Lazio Merlot  $16
Sodale is composed of 100% Merlot.  These Merlot vines thrive on the calcium-rich, volcanic soils of Montefiascone in Lazio.  Sodale is redolent with inky black fruit, sweet spice, and mineral- all of which are woven together tightly with a degree of finesse that calls its revered cousin, Montiano, to mind. On the palate the wine is juicy yet structured with abundant tannin that is polished and supple in texture.

2010 Masciarelli Marina Cvetic Merlot  $20
Founded by Abruzzo native Gianni Masciarelli in 1981, Masciarelli and its wines have become the standard-bearer for the Abruzzo region   The Marina Cvetic is intensely dark color, virtually black; dark fruits, earth on somewhat subdued nose; massive red cherry, blackberry, red plum, raspberry on the palate.  This is really big for a merlot, more tannin and grip than you expect A year in new French oak delivers vanilla but thankfully not huge oak; drying finish that extends significantly. This is not a mild, gentrified merlot, but a big, dark red wine.  Was $30 now $20

Madrona Wine Merchants offers free wine tastings featuring 4-5 selections on a theme every Saturday from 2 until the bottles run out and on Sunday, we offer a mini-tasting of two wines all day from 11-5.

Roots Wine Company

with winemaker Chris Berg

Saturday, December 7th, 2pm

In 1999, the Berg family planted seven acres of mostly Pinot Noir on the 20-acre property near Yamhill in the Willamette Valley. In 2002, they picked their first harvest of a whopping three tons, which were made into 72 cases of Pinot Noir.  Today, Roots produces approximately 5,000 cases annually.  Besides their estate fruit they also source from neighboring vineyards in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA.  While Pinot Noir is the main focus, they also make an estate Pinot Gris and a Chardonnay sourced from Cancilla Vineyard.  Stop by on Saturday when winemaker Chris Berg will be with us showing off his creations.

2017 Roots Cancilla Vineyard Chardonnay $22
Oregon seems made for Chardonnay. 
 
2018 “Klee” Pinot Noir $19
In homage to one of winemaker/owner Chris Berg’s favorite artists, Klee is named for the famous Baus Haus artist Paul Klee.  The 2018 is vibrant and layered; the hallmarks of Oregon Pinot are all here: dark/sour cherry, plum, cola, soil, delicate body, bright acid, fine tannins. Remarkably complex at a great price
 
2017 Roots Crosshairs Cuveé Pinot Noir $22
This wine is made from grapes sourced from Roots Estate Vineyard (35%), as well as the following Yamhill-Carlton AVA sites: Saffron Fields (30%), Fairsing (20%) and Yamhill Springs (15%).

Pascal Ponson 1er Cru Champagne $39
80% Pinot Meunier, 10% Pinot Noir, 10% Chardonnay
Pascal Ponson is a small grower producer from Montagne de Reims. His Brut has rich and creamy aromas of red and yellow apple, quince, lemon blossom, white mushroom, honeysuckle, hazelnut, and delicate purple flowers are woven around a strong core of mineral notes. There is a lot of complexity here for the price.
2017 Dauvissat Petit Chablis $20
Chardonnay
Made from Vincent Dauvissat’s outlier vines located above Les Clos, on limestone soils, this wine has good focus and minerality with some of the savory complexity that’s the domain’s hallmark. It is very rich with classic notes of white flowers, citrus zest and struck flint over its silky fruit.
2007 Becker Landgraf Riesling, Gau-Odernheimer Trocken $24
Julia trained as a chartered engineer, Johannes as an oenologist, subsequently making the wines at his parents’ estate in Rheingau. In 2005 they married, and Johannes joined Julia in running her family estate in Gau-Odernheim. They dry-farm with as little intervention as possible, using only organic fertilizer, and interspersing green fallow plots in the vineyards. Their vineyard sites are distinctive, but are essentially calcareous clay. This aged Riesling has a pure, mineral driven Riesling notes accompanied by all the secondary note that only age provides.
2016 Edmond Monnot Maranges Les Saugeot $26
Pinot Noir
After taking over his father’s estate, Stephan Monnot built a new winery on the steep hillside below the family home designed to facilitate all movement of the wine by gravity for a more gentle journey from press to fermentation tank to barrel. His wines offer a great ratio of price to quality. This Maranges shows hints of pine and earth, mingled with tangy cherries and silky tannins on the finish. Drinking great now.
