Claude Cazals

Clos Cazals Vieilles Vignes Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Champagne Chardonnay 2010

This plot cuvée was created jointly by Delphine and her father, Claude in 1995.

Its grapes come from the oldest vines of Clos, planted by Claude Cazals in 1957, located in Oger.

Clos are very rare in Champagne, there are only about twenty (21). Delphine Cazals owns one of the largest clos of the Côte des Blancs (3.70 Ha).

A passage in oak barrels is carried out for all vintages in order to bring subtle and delicate aromas.

Aging on slats for a minimum of 10 years in a vaulted cellar in Mesnil-sur-Oger is required to develop the full aromatic palette of this exceptional cuvée, highlighting all the complexity of the 100% Oger terroir.

A fine and elegant champagne with notes of white flowers and citrus fruits with an appreciable roundness and revealed by a minimal dosage between Extra-Brut and Brut Nature depending on the vintage.

Terroir: Le Clos d´Oger - GRAND CRU

Grape variety: 100% Chardonnay

Blenheim Vineyards

Painted Series Red Blend

Yes, 6 varietals….nevertheless, the Monticello tar/singe is framing this one. The 2012 was decidedly more balanced. EDIT: after a full day of air the funk wore off and the sour turned decidedly more balanced and sweet… Worthy of a one point pump ;) — 2 months ago

Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2009

Outpost 2009

Le nez est enivrant, il embaume la pièce de fruit noir et de vanille. On le carafe car je me doute qu’il doit être costaud.

En bouche c’est pareil, les fruits noirs, ( cassis, bleuets, mures), vanille, le bois est encore présent et ne s’estompe pas avec le passage en carafe, le vin est tout d’un bloc, texture soyeuse, l’acidité structure bien le tout. Ca se boit très bien mais il manque vraiment de complexité malheureusement, il n’a pas l’effet wow que je recherchais.

Super floral/violet nose with, what seems to me to be, a fleshy, rich/soft texture on the palate. This was more enjoyable than many NW Cab based wines I've had in the past, thoigh I can't tell if it is thr bottle age or character of this wine. — 2 months ago
