A Great Malbec and a Delicate Saumur tasted on 10-3

We tried 2 wines yesterday from completely different parts of the world, an Argentinian Malbec and a Saumur Blanc. The former is from Achaval Ferrer, arguably the best Argentinian Malbec estate, and the latter is from Chateau de Breze, one of the most prestigious vineyards in the Loire dating back to the 16thcentury. Both of these wines I thought were outstanding values and both are available in limited quantities to the Atlanta market.

 

The 2016 Chateau de Brezeis a great example of what Chenin Blanc can exhibit at its best. It has subtle aromas that combine white fruit, citrus and floral elements. On the palate, bright flavors of apple and melon are set within a framework of Citrus and spice.  This wine is absolutely delightful and go well with Chicken, Turkey or a cheese plate - $19.99

 

The 2016 AF by Achaval Ferrer Blend, Lujan de Cuyo is a wine that has all of the elements that one would expect in a Malbec from a top Argentinian estate. This wine has aromas of Plum and Tobacco on the nose and follows up with dense flavors of black cherry and blackberry that finish with mineral and lingering dark fruit. – $19.99

 

 

2016 Achaval Ferrer AF Blend - James Suckling / 91

“Fresh blueberries, peppermint, light violets and a hint of orange rind and nutmeg. Full body, succulent tannins, plenty of crisp acidity and a juicy finish. A more floral rendition of this wine. Drink now.”
