Curral Atlantis

Château Le Grand Faurie

St. Émilion Grand Cru 2009

Man this is just so good. Forest floor, mushroom, a lot of deliciousness. An unmistakable Bordeaux. Had a rough day so thought would pop this open. This is one of these hidden little gems you discover. Like stumbling across the lost city of Atlantis. Too good to be true. — 2 years ago

Atlantis White Blend 2017


Delicious: had a savory nutty biscuit w/dill which gave way to white flowers, tangerine & dried pineapple. Very expressive, steely stony minerally grippy sappy w/linear acidic backbone. Really unusual, nice heft & persistence on finish. — 10 months ago

Atlantis Fe2O3-1a Syrah 2005

Shay A

As if Part 1 of Saturday night wasn’t incredible enough, Part 2 of the final and main event for the Fall WNH was all Sine Qua Non wines. The most spectacular lineup of wines I’ve ever seen, and an overall wonderful ending to an amazing trip with fantastic people.

One of the oldest SQNs I’ve ever had, and as expected, it was still incredibly young and vibrant. The power that Manfred’s Syrah have has mellowed, but the flavor profile is still very much impressive with baked red and black fruit pies, sweet cherry, and savory spice. This got darker towards the finish with a roasted plum note. Simply incredible. Awesome bottle,

Unlitro Alicante Blend

Unlitro is a blend of Alicante Nero, Carignane, and Alicante Bouschet. Brightly earthy and juicy, so drinkable, almost fizzy. Laura likes the dark velvety fruit, rich fizzy texture. I was getting undertones of blackened fish and fresh rubber- like that episode of GIJOE where they raise Atlantis by sinking tires to the sea floor. — 5 years ago

Atlantis Albariño 2018

Albariño w stylu bogatszym i obfitszym. Nie ma tu mineralnej kostyczności, zamiast niej dużo owoców cytrusowych z grejpfrutem na czele. Do tego słodkie jabłka. Mineralny, słonawy, nieco metaliczny rdzeń jest, ale otoczony soczystością owoców. Bardzo dobra wersja galicyjskiego albariño. — a year ago

Atlantis Fe2O3-2c Grenache 2005

2005 Sine Qua Non "Atlantis Fe203-2a" California Grenache
15.3% alcohol. 93% Grenache and 7% Syrah. So I return yet again to sing the praises of one Manfred Krankl, the Man, the Myth, the Legend. I originally pulled this bottle for an El Ideas dinner I was unfortunately unable to attend. The bad news is that I missed the artistry of @phillipfoss. The good news is that it’s here tonight. This is a wine that demands your complete and undivided attention which it never would have received in a restaurant setting with other wines. It needs to be doted on like the pretty girl at the dance. It needs to be the absolute center of attention. One of the highlights (and there are legion) of any SQN for me is the aromatic extravaganza I’ve come to expect, and this wine’s initial profile when the cork is pulled is akin to walking into a florist. That perfumed fragrance just floods the room. More swirling reveals sandalwood, anise, dark berries with some orange peel and just a touch of mint. It’s intense. It’s like when the server removes the cloche on an @grantachatz Alinea dish, and that scent wafts up and just engulfs you. You become immersed in that sensory overload. The show continues with an initial palate of succulent red fruits and kirsch, with notes of dark chocolate, espresso and that mint I mentioned on the nose. Subsequent returns to the glass reveal hints of grilled meats, sage and forest floor. Tannins and texture are pure silk. Persistent, fresh and slightly spicy finish of great length. The wine is beautifully integrated. Complex. Elegant. Wonderfully pure. Perfection? Let’s just say that if this wine isn’t first in its class, it doesn’t take long to call the roll.
