Description

De Loach Russian River Chardonnay

De Loach Russian River Chardonnay is a beautiful pale straw yellow in colour.

The nose of this Chardonnay especially entices you with its rich aromas of key lime, white peach, and baked apple pie.

Upon the first sip, a flinty brightness balances the creamy apple.

Subtle soft oak helps carry this lovely wine with a long, lingering finish.

The Producers

The winery and vineyards were originally owned and run by the De Loach family, with Cecil De Loach as winemaker.

In 2003, the family run Burgundian estate Jean-Claude Boisset purchased De Loach.

Therefore they brought the focus back to the estate’s original high quality winemaking philosophy.

Specific emphasis was on small lot winemaking, particularly of Pinot Noir from the Russian River Valley.

The winery’s 17-acre estate vineyard is now 100% organic and Biodynamic®.

A tradition especially upheld by many foremost Burgundian vineyards.

The De Loach estate vineyards are certified organic by CCOF.

The appointment of consultant winemaker Greg La Follette (formerly at Flowers on the Sonoma coast) was the start of a return to their previously excellent form.

Winemaker Brian Maloney works alongside Greg in making Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Zinfandel from their own vineyards and those of similar minded growers.

Furthermore they focus on biodynamic, organic and systainable winemaking practices.

The cool, foggy Russian River Valley climate allows for slow ripening, ideal for Chardonnay to develop full flavour maturation. The fruit comes from select sites in the heart of the valley including the Boriolo and BCD vineyards, as well as from the Norris and Wallace vineyards nestled in the Chalk Hill region.

In conclusion, the fermentation takes place in a combination of stainless steel tanks (40%) and French oak barrels (60%), of which 10% were new. The barrel fermented portion of wine was aged for nine months and achieved full malolactic conversion. These techniques contributed to an intricately layered and delicately nuanced wine.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Domaine des Brosses Sancerre 2019

The Girard family have 6 different parcels of Sancerre vineyards. Their hillside vineyards are located on classic clay and chalk soils, giving the grippy, mineral style expected of true Sancerre. Domaine des Brosses has used a machine harvester to collect the grapes since 1989. This is so that the Sauvignon Blanc is brought to the winery in the coolness of night-time, thus retaining the classic citrus and gooseberry aromas and flavours of Sancerre. Pale yellow in colour. The nose is fresh and full of hay, citrus and mineral notes. The palate is medium in body with crisp lemon acidity and an appealing creamy complexity alongside the ripe peach, elderflower and mineral flavours which last well on the long finish.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Domaine Langlois Chateau Saumur Blanc 2018

Chenin Blanc dominated dry and minerally with a tang of honeyed melon on the palate that leads to the crisp floral finish. The harvest is made entirely by hand yielding 60 hl/ha and 150kg of grapes produced 100 litres of juice in this vintage. Fermentation was controlled at between 18-20 degrees to preserve the precious aromas.
