    Sommelier

    The opinion of the wine taster

    This wine made his mark with originality and a distinctive style, based on the deep maturity of grapes and on the freshness and elegance of the taste. His ageing in oak barrels offer chocolate and toasted notes on the palate. It’s one of the best Chilean Carmenere according to Parker.

    85% carmenere, 15% cabernet sauvignon. The grape variety carmenere was originally from Bordeaux, but it disappeared with the philloxera invasion (insects which feed roots of vines). Before, some plants where exported to Chili, this explain the importance presence of this grape variety in Chilean wines. The Carmenere wines are fleshy, supple and rich.

     Anecdote

     Winemaker

    The Klurs are an old dynasty of winemakers, like often happens in Alsace. Grapevine culture and winegrowing find their origins in the 17th century and it’s a family business. Clément and Francine Klur are also very committed to the biological and biodynamic agriculture and in the ecology.

  3. Roussette de Savoie 2012, Domaine Grisard

    Roussette de Savoie 2012, Domaine Grisard

    Sommelier

    The opinion of the sommelier

    « I’ve traveled a lot in Savoy these days, and I really wanted to find a nice roussette to taste, and I found this beautiful cuvée of Philippe Grisard. The roussette is a white grape variety very interesting for wine tasting because it has a nice acidity, a floral bouquet, and tannins, that is rare for white wines. »

    Feuille

    Grape Variety

    The roussette, also called “goddess”, is one of the rare white grape varieties where we can feel the tannins. Wines produced from this grape have a fine acidity that reminds mountains’ freshness. They have a medium keeping potential (4 to 5 years).

    Oeil

    Appearance

     Fine greenish gold colours with light green reflec- tions. The disk is thin, shiny and limpid.

     

    Nez

    Nose

    Nose is intense, amusing. Flowers' flavours dominate the aromatic palette, followed by notes of acacia trees, sweet spices and honey.

    Bouche

    Taste

    Taste is round - that means without roughtness (we feel like making the wine moving in our mouth) - supple and fresh. It's very well balanced.

    Verre

     Service

    Service : between 10 et 12°C.  Open just before serving. Keeping potential until 2018.

     Anecdote

    Winemaker

    Selected among the 10 winemakers of the year by Bettane and Desseauve in 2000, Philippe Grisard is a solid value in Savoy. He is well-known in the entire region for his vineyards growing talents: Indeed he makes the seeds for many wineries in Savoy.

     Terroir

    Terroir

     The Domaine Grisard extends for 15 hectares in the Combe de Savoie, between Chambéry and Albertville. Vineyards are located on mountains slopes in the natural park of Bauges. The muddy limestone slopes have draining capacity. This helps the production of wine with a high acidity level.
