What We're Drinking

 

Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Jacquesson Single Vineyard Champagne

We just recieved our tiny allocation of the Jacquesson Single Vineyard Champagnes, and they will go very quickly. These wines are tiny production, and very hard to find.

The three single vineyard offerings from Jacquesson

I haven't had a a chance to taste these rarities myself- and I doubt that I will. That being said, the classic, focussed style of the 2004 vintage suits the precision work of this ancient house perfectly, and these will be great, great wines for those with a good cellar and patience. Act quickly!

2004 Jacquesson "Champs Cain" Avize Brut Champagne $249

2004 Jacquesson Aÿ "Vauzelle Terme" Brut Champagne $249

2004 Jacquesson Dizy "Corne Bautray" Brut Champagne $249

A toast to you!- Gary Westby
