Senor de Lesmos Rioja Reserva Especial

Senor de Lesmos Rioja Reserva Especial

Bodega Casa Juan is located in Rioja Alavesea, the Basque area of Rioja.  The winery is a converted flour mill, featuring concrete tanks for fermenting and blending the wine and barrels for ageing that are used for up to seven years. These are traditional Riojas in winemaking and spirit, though the site-specificity of their Laguardia and Villabuena vineyards confers a fruit character all its own to these wines. The reserva especial is a special blend of 50% Tempranillo and 50% Mazuelo, that is aged in a different selection of barrels than usual. Some more new oak comes into play, but that is only relative to Angel’s very conservative, light toast, high proportion of older barrels aging regimen. This is the rarest and smallest production of the Lesmos wines, and possibly their very best.

Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino

Claudia Ferrero and her husband/winemaker Pablo Härri’s estate is called the Podere Pascena and it sits in the southwesterly corner of Montalcino where they are bordered by Argiano and Banfi’s Riserva vineyard “Poggio all’Oro”. Pablo Harri spent 15 years as the lead winemaker at Banfi before starting his own winery. The small production of this wine which averages about 600 cases per year is aged in two French Allier casks of 21 and 30 hectoliters for 2 years and then in bottle for another two years before release.

Bruno Michel Cuvée Pauline Blanc de Blanc 2002

Bruno Michel Cuvée Pauline Blanc de Blanc 2002

Estate vines of 35-60 years old in Moussy in Pierry, south of Epernay. It has been fermented in old oak barrels and aged for 10 months in them before being bottled and aged on the lees for 7 years. The wine has a pale color, with a spring of tiny bubbles and a nose of sweet spice cake and fragrant white flowers. This is elegant, complex Champagne with a very long, gentle finish. It should keep for more than a decade, but will certainly make any occasion between now and then special!

Bruno Michel Assemblée Rosé Brut

Bruno Michel Assemblée Rosé Brut

Organic certified grower Champagne from a top producer. Both gourmand and elegant, this cuvée is loved for its ruby color, spicy aromas, and the notes of red berries in its finish. It’s very brilliant color comes from a careful harvest, where only the best grape clusters were selected at optimal ripeness, and from the saignée winemaking method.

This rosé is a great highlight to complement the end of a meal with friends, and pairs well with a dessert made with red berries or a crumble.

Brut (residual sugar: 6g/l)
