Red Wine

“the first obligation of a wine is to be red…”, Harry Waugh. What more needs saying; here is where wine lovers demand and find complexity beyond the measure of any other wines. The wide variety of grapes being made into red wine permutated by terrior, vintage and wine maker yield a cornucopia of possibilities to suit nearly every taste or deviation thereof. The differences and similarities often elicit thoughtful contemplation as well as geeky lugubriosity.

This is where you can use the “Taste Profile” search feature to its expedient best. Chose the style you are anxious to try and let the search engine narrow the choices.

Gaillard Cote-Rotie Rose Pourpre 2004 
Characteristics: Pierre Gaillard’s 2004 Rose Pourpre is strong, refined and worth ageing. Derived from the parcel of Côte Rozier on the slopes of Ampuis from a gifted parcel just below the justly famous La Landonne vineyard whose wines retail between $400 and $500 a bottle, this south facing amphitheater is comprised of the same brown schist, rich in iron oxide and remains one of the warmest parts of Côte Rôtie. This plot, measuring less than two acres, turns out exhilarating Syrah wines with extremely peppery noses balanced by the sweet and sour tension of plums and roasted meats. Given ten years to come into its own and mature into a great wine, the 2004 Rose Pourpre embodies this to be sure but now also bears tertiary notes of lofty pine resin and heady roses in bloom –all grounded by a meaty bouillon bottom –there is nothing like an aged Syrah that is still fresh despite all these savory, dry roasted mushroom depths. This is a fragrant wonder just opening into a glorious and graceful stride.

Girardin Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentieres 2015 
Characteristics: Vincent Girardin 2009 Savigny-les-Beaune Serpentières, Côte de Beaune | 13.5% | Delicious wine from 50 year old vines of Pinot Noir on the Premier Cru climat of Les Serpentières. The village of Savigny-les-Beaune is located in the Côte de Beaune, a couple miles north of the village of Beaune. The wine area of Savigny-les-Beaune is one of the oldest of Burgundy and a lot of parcels belonged to the Dukes of Burgundy and to the Abbeys of Citeaux and Maizières. "Les Serpentières" is located at the opposite of the Marconnets' plot and here the soil are chalky with stones and gravels a bit of clay. In 228 liter French oak barrels of which 15% are new, malolactic fermentation takes place and the wine is then aged 14 months, and then bottled without fining or filtration following the moon calendar. A wine with plenty of fruit with well integrated structure, this is full and round, very long and charming start to finish. In terms of food pairings, this is versatile but for starters think starters, pâtés, white and red meat.

Marchesi Pancrazi Pinot Noir villa Bagnolo 2010 
Characteristics: Pinot Noir Villa di Bagnolo Toscana IGT: 100% Pinot Nero almost exclusively from Burgundian clones. The vineyards are south-facing, and the microclimate is cool and well ventilated, with significant temperature variance between daytime and nighttime. Altitude is moderate, 0-492 feet a.s.l., favoring grape maturation. The soil is shaly and clayey, volcanic in origin (Monte Ferrato is an extinct volcano) and particularly rich in iron, which is instrumental to Pinot Noir complexity. Water supplies in the Bagnolo area are abundant throughout the year and the soil itself has high levels of humidity; these are crucial factors for the variety, which is especially sensitive to drought. The wine is aged one year in French oak barriques followed by one year of bottle aging. Small crops and cru characteristics endow the wine with superb intensity, purple color, remarkable fruit aromas reminiscent of blackberries & plums, also mint nuances, coffee, licorice & vanilla; round, soft, luscious & lingering on the palate.

Mongeard-Mugneret Echezeaux Grand Cru 2014 
Characteristics: Echezeaux wines are a clear garnet or ruby red, the exact hue often varying considerably. When young these wines have vanilla-scented, smoky, woody aromas or a hint of torrefaction, combined with suggestions of red fruits and spices. After a few years the nose becomes more vegetable or animal, with the scent of mushrooms, truffles or woodland undergrowth. The great complexity of the bouquet makes this a wine which is both rich and feminine; it is silky, fat and mellow, with fine, delicate and fairly supple tannins. In the mouth the attack is spirited, the balance pleasant and there is a succulent fullness with aromas of red fruits.

Mont Olivet Chateauneuf-du-Pape 6/1500 2016 
Characteristics: Garrigue and ripe raspberries meld licorice, sage, rosemary and lavender! Fragrant with roses all over the palate and long onto the finish this is exemplary Chateauneuf-du-Pape in that it is thoroughly packed with engaging red and black fruit but really expressive of the fragrant garrigue one loves to find and thrilled when found at this intensity. If you love the heady scent of woodlands, eat game, or simply like to sip wines of soul and inimitable character, this needs ticking off your list of sought after joys -you will have a friend for life.
