(WT090220-01) 19 FRANCE LOIRE LES COUTES, DOMAINE PASCAL & NICOLAS REVERDY  $26.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE LOIRE) 14.1%; at Maimbray; on Marne clay-limestone; unfiltered; Peter Weygandt selection. Oh, there's some real depth and dimension and minerality to this one. The clay body, the limestone calcaire. Peach and gooseberry auras./ Body, savor, terroir, amplitude. Texturally, one of the most exciting 2019 Sancerres I've tasted. Suitable replacement for the Hippolyte Reverdy. Long finish. Enjoyed by the group. 17.2.

(WT090220-02) 18 CHATEAU DE CHANTEGRIVE, GRAVES BLANC  $19.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BORDEAUX) 13.5%; chateau bottled; Famille Leveque at Podensac; half each semillon, sauvignon. Light H2S. Not much fruit forthcoming. A woody undertow./ Palate pretty quiet, flavor-wise. Has weight; takes up space. Again, the oak suggestion. Let's see what happens after some aeration. Well, not much more. This will require cellaring. 15.8+.

(WT090220-03) 19 CHABLIS, DOMAINE FOURREY  $23.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 13.5%; vineyard between Milly and Fleys; 25 year old vines. Prominently flinty nose. Less fruit and more terroir than earlier vintages. Remains kind of a Johnny One Note./ Medium bodied. Rather dilute, fluid. The group complained about too much malolactic fermentation character for a Chablis. 15.7.

(WT090220-04) 18 BOURGOGNE CHARDONNAY, THIERRY & PASCALE MATROT  $26.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 12.5%; vineyard near Meursault; 30 yr. old vines; aged 10 weeks in barrels, 20% new; Daniel Haas selection. The oak is not yet fully integrated. Puts a lid on the fruit and terroir./ Some of that mealy-grainy Meursault character. There's amplitude here. Weight and volume. Potential oak-fruit-bouquet complexity. Good acidity. For its modest alcohol content, this has a lot of presence. I'd be cellaring it. Even some oak tannin. After aeration, the oak seemed to settle in. 16.7+.

(WT090220-05) 19 BANDOL ROSE, LA BASTIDE BLANCHE  $22.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE MEDITERRANEAN) 14%; domaine bottled; 71% mourvedre, 14% grenache, 12% cinsault, 3% clairette; Peter Weygandt selection. Wow, loaded with fruit aroma, range, depth. Aims to please./ Strong mourvedre purple fruit emphasis, and positive mourvedre astringency. Palate less alluring, more textural, weightier, and drier for mealtime applications. Impressive overall. Will likely improve well into its second year. 17.0+.

(WT090220-06) 18 BOURGOGNE PINOT NOIR, NICOLAS POTEL  $19.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BURGUNDY) 13%; made from parcels in Santenay, Pommard, Volnay, Chambolle-Musigny and Vosne-Romanee (80%) as well as declassified village appellations of Auxey-Duresses and Maranges (20%). Fruit-forward, heart on sleeve Potel styling. Surprisingly powerful in the Taster glass. What starts out 'innocent' gathers richness and depth as it airs. Well, this can't be easily dismissed after all./ Definitely plenty of the dark, plummy pinot elements of the Nuits villages. In back, dry and sapid, with fine tannin that will hold it together while bottle bouquet forms. Value! 16.7+.

(WT090220-07) 18 LANGHE NEBBIOLO BOTTI, AZ. AGR. PECCHENINO  $28.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 14%; 15 acre vineyard in southern Langhe at 480 meters; aged 18 mo. in 2500 liter French oak barrels. Well, this is certainly powerful in the Taster glass. Deep, ripe, smoky, smoldering black fruit and tar./ Medium bodied Dogliani nebbiolo, with good nebbiolo framework. Dense, earthy basis with floral aromatics of rose and violet hovering over. Good acidity. Still a quite compact and tannic wine. Chewy aftertaste. I like its makings. 16.7+.

(WT090220-08) 18 ETNA ROSSO, TENUTA DELLE TERRE NERE  $21.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13.5%; from nerellos mascalese & cappucino; yields of 2 tons/acre. Strong and abundant bing and maraschino cherry aromas and a hint of red coffee-bean cherries. Lots of depth and carry-through./ Full bodied, full flavored. Cherry, chocolate, cinnamon, coffee. Lush fruit texture meets drying fine tannins that perform the balancing act. Overall, very substantial and very satisfying mouthful of Etna rosso. With cellar potential. 16.8+.

(WT090220-09) 17 VALPOLICELLA RIPASSO CLASSICO SUPERIORE, CORTE ARMANO  $21.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (ITALY) 13.5%; 70% corvina, 30% rondinella; in Feb. after the harvest, pomace from the amarone fermentation is added; aged a year in large oak barrels thereafter. Dark color./ Heady, robust, rich, singed, and wholly ample. Quite the contrast from the modern styling of the Righetti a couple of weeks back. This is the real, traditional ripasso deal./ Youthful and compact. Still, the energy is there. After aeration, this opened up well for the group, gathering the richness and warmth associated with ripasso and even some oak complement to the fruit. Long and lovely. 16.9+.

(WT090220-10) 16 CHATEAU COUTET, GRAND CRU, SAINT EMILION  $34.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (FRANCE BORDEAUX) 14.5%; 60% merlot (vines up to 100 yrs. old), 30% cab franc, 7% malbec, 3% cab sauv; aged 18 mo. in barrique. Splendid face of 2016 Saint Emilion. Silky, refined, reserved, noble, confident. Quietly confirms its pedigree./ The palate is sweeter and fruitier than the nose indicated, which just adds to the wine's complexity and entertainment value. Two ring circus full of outstanding performances. What more could you want? 17.4+.

(WT090220-11) 18 TURLEY JUVENILE CALIFORNIA ZINFANDEL  $23.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (U.S. WEST COAST) 15.2%; from vine 6-25 years old in 18 of Turley's best sites. Turley's most modest zin is still one generous wine. Raspberry and cranberry nose I associate with Dry Creek Valley zinfandels. And there's more than that. Black pepper savors./ Sweet and juicy amalgam of growing zones, skillfully assembled. Flavors of red and black raspberry, and plum. Wears its power well. The alcohol is actually cooling. Nothing sweetish or pandering about this. It delivers generosity and value. 16.7.

(WT090220-12) 17 SCHLOSS VOLLRADS RIESLING  $21.99
09/02/20 Wednesday Group Tasting Notes
- (GERMANY) 10%; estate bottled; medium sweet; Wine Enthusiast 91/100. Dry and astute Rheingau nose. Not a fruity riesling. Seems tailored for mealtime use./ The palate is medium sweet as promised, and the acid is prominent, racy, and well buffered. Everything fits together well, though this is a little sweeter than the wines the late Graf promoted. The wine reportedly continued to spread its peacock's tail into the following day. 16.3+.
