Le Pente de Chavigny, Mikaël Bouges

Publicerat: december 11, 2011 i Uncategorized

Mikaël Bouges based in Faverolles-sur-Cher on the south of Loire river. 2005 was his first year on his own, and inspired by Carherine and Didier at Clos Roche Blanche (organic). From 2000 worked Mikaël with his father Elie Bouges at a 17 heactare estate, Domaine de la Puannerie in Saint-Julien-de-Chdon, a neighbouring commune to Faverolles-sur-Cher.
At the moment have Mikaël eight hectares of land, six in Faverolles and tow in Saint-Julien-de-Chedon. The vines are half young ones and older vines between 60-80 years old. Mikaël have Sauvignon Blanc, Menu Pineau and Chenin Blanc plus some ares of Gamay. His main intrest is in the Menu Pineau,Pineau de la Loire(chenin blanc) and Cot.
With this wine Le Pente de Chavigny has he worked oraganically since 2002 .

This wine comes from the Touraine region of the slightly more north-east.
The fragrance is young and fruity elderberries but also pears warm nice tangy smells, some minerality and floral elements, not further complexity, but has great shape to maintain quality throughout. if I’m going to force some apples so it becomes overripe against rotten yellow apple.

Medium plus acidity, with slightly fatter and warmer mouth feel, damn comfortable balance with good fruitiness moderate acidity, and no direct tangible alcohol, the wine will remain a part of the transit and a little extra push has been the wine in the finish, something fire and peppery than Iam used to. The taste is more form biting green apple, black currant leaf, gooseberry

generally a good wine for the money, the balance is good, quality are the same, would not keep the wine more than 2-3 years to when it might be to passé …

Jean -Yves Peron is a young producer, and started his winery in 2004 and its his 5th vintage now . Jean-Yves winery is in Savoie, on a mere on tow hectares on a steep terrain at an altitude of 400-500 meters in Conflans, close to Albertvill,French Alps.

Jean-Yves Person , Champ Levat 2007, made of Mondeuse,Vin de Payes D`Allobrogie is a well made beautiful wine, with smooth tannins, and colors similar to a Pinot . Mondeuse is a rather rustic variety,comared to a comparable variety which is Syrah .
Alot of the terraces is on schist / slate ,and will give the mineral character

The wine is unfiltered red one , relatively large red heart that is wide, with a reddish-pink with a bit of itself, a development still, close to a Pinot …
Aromas explode at ones in the nose, elegant fruit scents of red fruits with a nice spicy fragrance, dominated by raspberry, violets,strawberries, a stimulating scent of charketurier, leather, more and more complex scent, a bit of burnt rubber and earthy .. I can continue very long;
You will notice some tannins but they are soft ones, medium acidity, fruity, feel deffenitivt the natural grape, red berries creeping up and not exactly a peppery as the smell, but an dry animal feeling , alcohol is undesirable, a simple but good wine, short length, reminds me a little on pinot and syrah in a weird combo.
A rewarding wine for wine lovers who want to go a little beyond their habits, a wine that I can see going super with different types of food

Gut Oggau – Winifred ( Rose ) 2010

Publicerat: november 16, 2011 i Uncategorized


My Notes:

The color is really very beautiful, with a small media center.
I spin the glass and I see a fire red orange color against a little salmon-colored tone.
The aroma is slightly more than neutral with some obesity / heat against floral, sweet red berries completely. not quite complex, but with fine fruit on the nose;
This is a dry wine with a medium plus acid with a red currant, raspberry direction, candy-like red gums, with a warm finish, a little spicy tones shown, a small hint of bitterness and mineral elements, but a balanced wine with good length and well worth my time.


Basic About This Wine in general:

The small town Oggau located on the west bank of Lake Neusiedl has been known for its wines since the Romans and probably has the longest tradition of red wines in Austria.
The Gut Oggau estate has also a long history, andhave now been dusted off and revitalized for the future by Eduard Tscheppe and Stephanie Tscheppe-Eselböck. And the philosophy essential hock point them to bio-dynamic viticulture.

Utseendet är gyllengul, ganska utvecklande färg med en syn av något koncentrerad karaktär.
Viner var ganska kallt och jag fick inte så mycket ut av det, nu börjar det arta sig efter några plus grader till, doften är medium framtalande med mineralitet, även mot mogen orange frukt,persika,apelsin,blodapelsin hållet ,honung och toast/vanilj. Vinet är tydligt sägande från den gamla världen då den inte är överpumpad med hög alkohol på nästan och för mycket av allt.
Vinet har allt mer och mer en utvecklande stigning och komplexiteten verkar komma mer och mer efter att vinet blir allt varmare i glaset . Ett vin som fortfarande verkar några år för ungt, men ger väldigt fin upplevelse . Doften annars avger en fin frukt som är balanserad , kanske pga ett bra år och vinet har kvaliteten med sig dels, detta är inget vin som är tungt som blästar på med massa skit utan levererar ärlighet och klantfritt.
Till vad det verkligen smakar, med en ingång av medium syrlighet , rund mjuk och fin frukt koncentration..troligen då av malolaktisk jäsning(antar jag), med smak av vanilj, behaglig orange röd frukt, med en liten mer mogen fruktsöttma av det ungefär samma som dofterna men med en liten mer mineralitet och som att bita i ett grönt äpple .. en ok balanserad munkänsla , och avslutar sig snärtande och ren, med en liten bitter avslutning, och bevarar längden generöst
