Champagne is the most iconic sparkling wine in the world, produced in the region of Champagne in France. Synonymous with celebration, champagne is typically produced from a few specific varieties of grapes: pinot noir, chardonnay, and pinot meunier. With effervescent flavors of citrus, almond, and apple, champagne comes in varying levels of sweetness and has a moderate amount of alcohol. The most treasured Champagnes age for a minimum of 3 years.
The Champagne region is located 140 kilometres from Paris, France. While the vines in this region have been producing wine since the Roman era, it is only in the past couple of hundred years that winemakers began producing Champagne using méthode champenoise - the complex method that produces the style of Champagne the world knows and loves today. Another important component of the production of champagne is the chalk and limestone soils which dominate the Champagne region. Vines grown in these conditions result in wines that are high in acidity - a key component to making good sparkling wine. Champagne's northerly location - about as north as grapes can ripen - also allow for higher acidity and lower alcohol levels which are also very important for producing quality sparkling wine.
1 x Chateau Malescot 'La Dame de Malescot' 2011 ~ Bordeaux, France
90/100 Falstaff Magazine
Made by one of France's 'Top 10' winemakers, famous for his 1855 classified "Grand Cru" Bordeaux. This wine is that wine's sought after brother!
Winemaker, Jean-Luc Zuger has been praised by wine media as "miraculous".
Winestyle "...elegant, full-bodied, harmonious, with hints of ripe cherry, black currant and blackberry, spicy notes, pleasant acidity, soft woody nuances and dry long finish"
Le Point magazine "Candied cherry, beautiful expressive nose, soft palate, velvety tannins, fresh, good finesse, a finish that will give you a surprise, superb fruit … all the power of a Cabernet." (French translation)
The Wine Cellar Insider "Winemaker, Jean-Luc Zuger is on fire at Chateau Malescot St. Exupery. The wines being made at the property today are stunning!"
Chateau Malescot St. Exupery has a long history in the Bordeaux wine region and is a Grand Cru Classé Chateau in the original Bordeaux Wine Official Classification of 1855. Malescot St. Exupery can be traced all the way back to 1616 when the Margaux estate was owned by the Escousses family. The Escousses were best known as notaries for the King.
1 x Rameau d'Or Golden Bough Provence Rosé 2020 ~ Provence, France
Epicure Good Food, Wine Guide, The Age "Outstanding French Rosé...The bouquet is subtle, and more than simple fruit. Good depth of flavour."
Terry Georga "Rameau d'Or is the most classic of Provencal rosés; from the pale pink-salmon verging on peach-flesh colour, to the savoury spice and fruit it portrays. A delicate blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Counoise from Cotes du Provence it is a refreshing, versatile wine that suits aperitif drinking and the quintessential summer rosé."
The Winemaker "A delicate coloured rosé showing the traditional pale onion skin tones of rose from the sunny Provence area of Southern France. On the nose, the wine offers a hint of wild strawberries and delicate spicy notes reminiscent of rose petal Turkish delight. On the palate, the wine shows immediate soft berry-fruit flavours that are immediately appealing. Then a hint of white pepper and fennel spice comes through providing a fresh, almost tangy finish which lingers on the palate."
Wine of the Week "Fabulous lunchtime wine with attractive bottle presentation and a back label story to the entrance. The most delicate pink hue, subtle aromas of cherry and raspberry and almost bone dry to the taste which is savoury rather than fruity with spice and pepper nuances and a tangy finish."
