Domaine de la Chaise Touraine Sauvignon 2016 – New Vintage

Descriptions:

Owned by the Davault family for six generations, Domaine de la Chaise is composed of 140 acres of vines located on the hillsides of Saint Georges sur Cher. Christophe Davault is the winemaker.

The juicy ripeness reflects a distinctly “New World” style –an especially rich and ripe character; the finish is long with grapefruit-y astringency. The full- flavoured nature of this wine belies the overall light body (only 12.5% ABV).

A crisp, refreshing, dry white wine. Very fragrant with pineapple, passion and grapefruit aromas. The palate is round and well balanced with a nice, delicate minerality.

Perfect on it’s own or serve with goat cheese, salads, seafood, shellfish risotto, grilled

Dominique Piron Brouilly 2014

Descriptions:

Immediately exuberant, with a diverse array of floral notes, there’s also some white pepper and crushed cherry notes. The palate, as with all of the Piron wines, is utterly pure and focused. So much great-value drinking in this.

Brouilly [broo-EE] goes marvelously with roasted or grilled chicken, fish, burgers, or pork. Pairs nicely with Camembert & Brie cheeses.

Casa de Santar Tinto Red

Descriptions:

50% Touriga Nacional, 25% Alfrocheiro and 25% Tinta Roriz

Casa de Santar is the oldest and most emblematic wine estate in the Dão region, for the history, size and prestige of its wines. The seventeenth century estate has been held by the same family (now represented by the son of the Countess of Santar, Tereza de Lencastre de Mello) for fifteen generations.

This estate wine is structured, mineral, dark in character and firm in tannins. There’s black raspberry and cherry on the nose with supporting notes of leather and damp earth.

The palate is medium bodied with good dark berry flavours and supporting acidity that gives this wine shape. All ripe fruit and cushioned tannins, this is a dense, very fruity wine. It is a power- house of richness and solid structure. Concentrated, with a touch of bitterness.

It’s a serious wine for aging; but is drinkable with its fruitiness now. It’s rare to find complexity like this at this price point.
