A' Puddara Etna Bianco Carricante 2013

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Boston Symphony Orchestra. Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading GERSHWIN (Piano Concerto in F), GERSHWIN (Variations on “I Got Rhythm,” for piano and orchestra) and STRAVINSKY (Petrushka) with the amazing Jean-Yves Thibaude as the piano soloist on the two first works presented today. Jean-Yves is by far among our favorite pianists to grace the Koussevitzky Shed stage, so graceful, yet poignant!

Hot days call for cool wines, today there are some fun ones planned for sharing.

Similar notes from our last bottle.
Savory herbs, beeswax, citrus pith. So wonderful!

Domaine J. A. Ferret

Les Ménétrierès Cuvée Spéciale Hors-Classe Pouilly-Fuissé Chardonnay 2012

Les Ménétrières is a one-hectare, southeast-facing vineyard with one third of the vines 40-years-old, one third 20-years, and a third are 10-years which are planted on shale in the upper half of the vineyard and pearly slabs in the lower half. The soils here are composed of alluvial deposits, layered with a sub-soil consisting of limestone and limestone marl streaks, with top layers rich in stone-free limestone deposits and light marls. These mineral rich soils greatly reflect in the 2012, which shows gorgeous streaks of minerality woven together with stunning aromas of Asian pear, white peach, lemon zest, almond, smoke, saline and a spicy floral character. It continues to impress as it expands on the palate with its lovely oily texture, which is beautifully cut by wonderful acidity that carries on through the delicious, mineral laced finish. Today, the Les Ménétrières seems to be the most complete and compelling wine I have tasted from the Domaine in this vintage. It is already showing tons of character and I only expect it to further evolve in the bottle — 13 days ago

This is a real winner. Monthly wine club selection from Weygandts. Tannic constraint on the punchy fruit, clean acidic finish. — 2 days ago

Dry Creek Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Fantastic. Rich fruit, nice touch of oak and long finish. Tastes great now and I think this will be best in next couple years so you can enjoy the fruit. Crushes most Napa cabs at the price point. — 3 days ago

Azores Wine Co.

António Maçanita Isabella a Proibida 2016

Very interesting wine from the Azores. I heard the producer Antonio Macanita on Levi Dalton’s podcast and have been wanting to try - amusing to have the chance to do so off the northern coast of Newfoundland. Tons of ripe strawberry on the nose, and lots of light red fruit on first sip. With a bit of air the deeper earthy / volcanic notes come through, all knitted together with exceptional acid. Versatile pairing wine and generally both interesting and delicious. — 18 days ago

Le Brut 1er Cru Champagne Blend

Out of a 375mL. Fine mousse, bruised pear, toasted mallow...some real zip on the finish. Refreshing and lovely. The new packaging is also win for this producer; much better looking. — 18 days ago
