Le Chiusure Erbaluce di Caluso 2018

Some fresh and wonderful juice here: golden apple and pear, Meyer lemon and gooseberry, honeysuckle and white blossom, underripe apricot with a slight spritz. Finish isn’t epic, but it doesn’t need to be—it’s crisp, clean and mineral. — a month ago

Monte Maletto

Vecchie Tonneau Erbaluce di Caluso 2018

Nose has moist alpine hay, fresh sage, lime wedge, quince, fresh fennel, wet granite sand and a light natural wine vibe with vinegar notes likely derived from a little skin contact action.

Palate initially has zoomy acidity like biting directly into a lime, but it expands to Jasmin honey, over-ripe Bosc pear, light woody notes, chewy moist chalk textures with a dry-ish finish seeming to run out endlessly. Wow, this wine has me floored with quality, what an experience!

1500 bottles produced.

Cork pulled for slow oxidation 8H, then decanted 2H, more bottle time appreciated. 2023+

May be not this red? You shipped me 2 bottles of red and 2 white. The white was very oxidized I loved it.

Biancamano Erbaluce di Caluso 2019

This quite remarkable. Erbaluce is not a very noble variety, but this wine might have you think otherwise. Perfumed lemon oil, mint with a waxy or oily texture. Med to light bodied with a surprising persistence. This is like sunlight in the glass. — 6 months ago

Colline Novaresi Rugiada di Erbaluce 2017

Light bodied, with notes of kiwi and white flowers. Yet it has some of the depth of an unoaked Chardonnay. — 2 months ago

Nose of lemon curd, flintiness and huge minerals. Airy as it airs. lol. Really clean and precise nose. Gets more expansive as it airs. Flowers and apples as well but this aromatically is very mineral driven. Palate is where this delivers. Structured, intensely mineral and very dry. Yet juicy, refined and deep. Really long. Almost no fruit on the palate. Nice inner mouth florals and such dry extract and sap. So clean, balanced and juicy. Really long. Just terrific. But it takes 30ish minutes to unwind. — 6 months ago

@Matthew Cohen bubbles or Passito brings out the best. It’s too severe and unfriendly for dry whites beyond hardcore wine geeks.

Nose of white raisins, caramel spices, marmalade, really clean. Super expressive and deep. Palate has crystalline texture, icing on a cake texture, superb freshness and stunning decadent sweetness that is cut by the acids and freshness and there is a even a hint of dryness on the finish from minerality. Ok, this is worth getting exciting about. Erbaluce is so good for sweet wines as the acid is bonkers. Awesome inner mouth aromas and vibrant peaches and other fleshy ripe stone fruits. Also raisins and caramel all anchored by the most ridiculous freshness. Epic. Just incredible. — 2 months ago
