Baumard Clos Du Papillon Savennieres 2014 
Characteristics: 100% Chenin Blanc from 35 year old vines planted to this single vineyard's schistose sandstone and ingeous rhyolite soils -an absolute marvel and Chenin Blanc at its best.

Domaine des Baumard produced some of the finest examples of Savennieres, including the single-vineyard "Clos du Papillon" from a site along the Loire notable for the presence of soapstone in its slate soils. Jean Baumard and now his son Florent are universally regarded as the finest winemakers in the appellation. Their wines are among the most unique and rewarding in the world: honeyed, dry whites of unmatched concentration, perfume, and longevity.

The butterfly shape of the vineyard gives "Clos de Papillon" its name. The soils are predominantly made of schist, sand and sandstone over rhyolite. The vines are 35 years old. Harvest is performed manually in successive passages through the vineyard. The grapes are whole-bunch pressed and fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures. The wine then remains on the lees for 9 months in tank before bottling.

Domaine des Baumard is situated right in hte heart of Anjoy, in the town of Rochefort-sur-Loire, just south of the town of Savennieres itself. The property has been in the Baumard family since 1634 but it was reconstituted and improved by Jean Baumard in the mid-1950s. Since 1992 the estate has been run with the meticulous care of Jean's son Florent and the Domaine is now regarded as one of the greatest producers in the Loire Valley and one of the greatest producers of white wine in the world.

Beaucastel Chateauneuf-du-Pape Rouge 6/750 2006 
Characteristics: Really dark brooding sort of nose. Leather and dark chocolate as well as espresso that makes for a very appealing and complex nose. The flavours are of earth and woodsy things like mushrooms and chicory but all along supported by a fleshiness, alcohol and tannins that promise long slow evolution. Alcohol is 14.5%. Notes by LAC, February 3, 2012.

Beaucastel Hommage 1/1500 2005 
Characteristics: Its deep color serves as a prelude to strong scents that are bold but never excessive. It combines smoothness and austerity, telling of the perfection of its terroir. This is a passionate wine. 11% alcohol by volume.

Cline Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 
Characteristics: Soft polished tannins and a velvety mouth-feel define this Small Berry Mourvedre. Overtones of plum and chocolate make it a perfect complement to grilled lamb or garlic studded rib roast. Dry farmed in a four acre sand-soil vineyard by the San Joaquin River, these are some of California's most historic, century-old vines. The surrounding eucalyptus trees impart a slight minty character. What's more: Cline farms the Green String way -naturally and sustainably.

Drouhin Chassagne-Montrachet Blanc 2017 
Characteristics: Joseph Drouhin 2009 Chassagne-Montrachet | 13% | From the renowned vine clad village of Chassagne-Montrachet in the Côte des blancs in the south of the Côte de Beaune of Burgundy and the tranquility of the 2009 vintage, this combines the charm of calm with the verve of Chassagne. Mid slope vineyards ensure the best of every vintage and this is no exception. Fragrant and florid even down to its flavorsome impact on the palate, this is a pure and shining example of not only the angelic power of Chassagne-Montrachet but the clear interpretation when fostered by the hands of Drouhin –an elegant house nonpareil. Despite all its creamy cedar and blossom, verve and texture, the minerality of Chassagne-Montrachet comes through clearly suggesting I have pulled the cork at a lovely time in its development. A deft balance makes quite the impression and perhaps it is for 12 months in (25% new) oak barrels. For table talk, the Drouhins tell us how the name Chassagne comes from "cassanos" a Celtic word used for a place where oak trees grow while the "rachet" means a poor, dry, infertile soil, “a paradox when thinking of the richness of the Chassagne-Montrachet wines!” I can only imagine what this might express on a Fruit or Flower day –such a marvelous wine here and now.
Wine review by Nicholas Livingston, April 22, 2014 (Leaf)

"A generous and elegant wine. Light golden colour. Intense nose of flower, brioche and candied lemon aromas, evolving towards nuances of grilled hazelnut and spice as the wine matures. On the palate, the wine is straightforward, with a nice texture and finesse. It has a long aftertaste where floral and gingerbread notes dominate".
