LOIRE VALLEY WINE VALUES

"Bargain Garden of France" by David Schildknecht.

Chateau de LORIERE Muscadet Cotes de GrandLieu: "Offering lime, pineapple, pear and a greenhouse-like amalgma of shrubbery and flowers, this is softer thatn the Choblet's "classic" bottling but finishes with juicy generosity and a lick of salts."

Domaine des HERBAUGES "Classic" Muscadet Cotes de GrandLieu: "Amid Jerome and Luc Choblet's array of bottlings, this is a luscious, bright, full of rich, crustacean mineral suggestions, and guaranteed to get your juices flowing on your thoughts turning to the next meal."

HERBAUGES Clos de la FINE Muscadet Cotes de GrandLieu: "This lush yet refreshing Muscadet offers a distinctive and subtly creamy combination of citrus, pit fruits, yeast, grain (a bit wheat beer-like), jasmine, almond, salt and chalk."

HERBAUGES Clos de la Senaigerie Muscadet Cotes de GrandLieu: "This saline, stone-licking, pungently nutty Muscadet offers remarkable succulence and sheer cling."

BORDEAUX WINE VALUES

"Thinking outside the prestigious Appellations" by Robert Parker, Jr.

Chateau CHARMAIL Haut Medoc Cru Bourgeois Superieur: "An exquisite, sexy wine displaying sweet fruit; round, ripe tannins, an endearing opulence; and a long finish, this cuvee generally ages well for a decade."

Now sold on "Futures", Ch.Charmail belongs to our very first Bordeaux selection since 1992 (well before it went to the Bordeaux market place... unfortunately), but then already showing the potential of this magnificient estate fromSaint-Seurin de Cadourne top terroir.

LANGUEDOC WINE VALUES

"Great bargains & great ambitions" by David Schildknecht.

BORIE LA VITARELE Les Terres Blanches Saint-Chinian: "Syrah with a bit of Grenache, this captures generous black raspberry and plum as well as notes of chololate and Provencal herbs on a silken-textured palate, with subtly chalky, meaty undertones."

Chateau VIRGILE Costieres de Nimes: "Copious black cherry and raspberry, bittersweet licorice and juniper, and cococa powder inform this tannic yet audaciously ripe concentrate."
