Famille Bréchet

Plateau des Chênes Lirac Grenache Blanc Blend 2015

Reminds of the Sanguis Beekeeper bottling.,
Winery notes
Not an easy wine to find, check out K&L

blend of Grenache Blanc, Clairette, and Roussanne, this wine is distinctly floral and lush, exemplifying the quality that the famed Brechet family of Châteauneuf-du-Pape’s Château Vaudieu brings to every wine in their lineup. The Brechet family has an estate in Châteauneuf-du-Pape, and just across the river from it they own a few small parcels in Lirac. This lovely little wine is at once floral, delicate, and rich, with a surprisingly weighty palate and a round quality on the tongue that enhances its depth. You might think a white from 2015 is a bit on the old side, but this little gem is just hitting its stride. With its couple of added years of age it has mellowed out, creating an almost honeyed quality in the glass that intensifies the complexity and lengthens the finish. It’s simply begging to be paired with a lightly spiced Asian cuisine such as a milder Thai dish or a traditional pork Bahn Mi.

Black Sears Vineyard Old Vine Reserve Zinfandel 2012

This wine is no joke, big everywhere. Great aromas of fig compote, rum cake, vanilla, berries, and tobacco. Mouth is rich and structured, feel a little heat. — 8 years ago

Secret Stones Rockpile Zinfandel 2015

New producer to me. Pretty strong reviews and I can see why. This is not your jammy fruit bomb zin that are super common. Finesse in style but retaining richness in flavor. Reminiscent of Carlisle style zins with higher acidity, lower ABV and encompassing the entire fruit spectrum. Ripe raspberries, blueberries and blackberries accompanied by Mexican vanilla and sandalwood aromatics. Energetic on the palate. Delicious. Thanks for opening, @Jack Thompson . — 3 years ago

@David T : And nice to enjoy one at 14.4 ABV when many others are 15-16%!

@Shay A In my perfect world, they would all be 12-13%. However, some producers mask the higher ABV levels of today better than others.

Montecillo Vineyard Zinfandel 2015

The nose on this is vibrant, predominantly blackberry and licorice. I thought there was more of a loganberry mixed with earthy leaves on the palate. You might disagree but it is still delicious. The best part is that it will linger on your palate so you can keep enjoying it. — 4 years ago
