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.

Talking Bordeaux

 

When looking for Bordeaux recommendations it's nice to be able to speak with someone who understands both the wines and the vintages.  Unfortunately, getting Robert Parker on the phone isn't the easiest thing in the world to do.  Never fear, however, because our own resident expert Ralph Sands is on the phone every week from Tuesday through Saturday (except for when he's in Bordeaux), talking Bordeaux with all those seeking council.  On Saturday morning Ralph was in the tasting bar, prepping for a big customer tasting that afternoon.  Listen to his tips about purchasing pre-arrival value in the 2009 vintage and then peruse his list of selections below!
