My very special guests today are both winemakers at the famed Domaine Carneros Winery in the Carneros AVA of Napa Valley. Zak Miller leads the Sparkling Wine team and TJ Evans is in charge of Pinot Noir production. Their journeys into winemaking are quite different but mutually inspiring. They'll share their wine stories and give us the inside scoop on what it takes to make iconic sparkling wine and world class Pinot Noir. And the best part is, they'll tell you how to get your start toward following in their footsteps. So, if you have wondered what it takes for a wine to go from grape to glass, this episode will not disappoint. So, let's meet Zak and TJ.

With Christmas around the corner we put together a list of some of our favorite wines for the holidays. The Federal Reserve's aggressive interest rate hikes hasn't slowed the uptick in wine prices. It can be fairly easy to blow up your wine budget with just one or two bottles of splurge purchases. Most of the wines on our list can all be had for under $35. Searching for one wine that pleases everybody is a fools errand. It's invariably better to select a variety of wines, open them all at once and let your guest choose what they would like to drink. There are plenty of wines here to please even your most finnicky guests. Thanks for listening to our podcast and Happy Holidays.2019 Château Vitallis Pouilly-Fuissé Vielles Vignes - Father and son team Denis and Maxime Dutron use Chardonnay from their oldest parcels, some as old as 85 years of age to craft this beautiful White Burgundy. 100% Chardonnay, natural fermentation, left on the lees for a year, 70% stainless steel the rest in barrel. Taut and mineral, with green apple and grapefruit. A distinctive Macon that may bring the ABC (anything but Chardonnay) crowd back into the fold. $272019 Ramey Russian River Valley Chardonnay - In contrast to the former old world Chardonnay the Ramey's make a 100% Chardonnay using a plethora of the old world techniques. Whole cluster pressing, native yeast barrel fermentation, lees aging, malolactic fermentation and light fining sans filtering. Baked apple and pear notes complement the layers of savory oak and baking spice. Beautifully textured and balanced. $38 2021 Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc - A perennial crowd pleaser the grapes for this Sauvignon Blanc are sourced from all over California. Its style remains remarkably consistent from year to year. Ripe melon and white peach aromas jump out of the glass. Lemon and lime flavors work well with the clean mineral finish. $122020 Michel Delhommeau “Harmonie” Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie - Michel and Nathalie Delhommeau farm the Melon de Bourgogne grapes for their Muscadet in the volcanic rich soils of the Loire Valley in northwest France. After fermentation the wine spends 5 months “Sur Lie” (in the tank on the lees). Lemon, apple, fresh and vibrant with a bracing minerality and tingling acidity on the finish. This Muscadet calls out for fresh oysters on the half shell and other light seafood dishes. $17 2021 Quivira Rosé Wine Creek Ranch - Cranberries, rhubarb and strawberries aromas compliment the zippy acidity of this 70% Grenache, 11%Counoise, 9% Mourvèdre, 5% Petite Sirah blend. Made with organically grown grapes. $202020 Concerto Reggiano Lambrusco - Most of us have never served a dry red sparkling wine. Here's your chance to wow your guests. Concerto, made from 100% Lambrusco Salamino comes in an attractive bottle that is shaped like a bowling pin. The grapes are organically farmed. When poured into a glass you get a beautiful purple froth. Dark ruby red in color the wine taste of raspberry and strawberries with hints of licorice. It's completely dry on the palate with a fresh zippy clean finish. Serve it slightly chilled not cold. $30Frederic Magnien Crémant De Bourgongne Blanc De Noir - If you love Champagne but you need to watch your coins a bit more closely try exploring sparkling wines from other regions of France. French sparkling wines that use the traditional method and are made outside of the Champagne region are called Crémant. This 100% Pinot Noir from the Burgundy area can be served as an aperitif and also has the body and weight to be served throughout a meal. A light amber color, very fine bubbles, aromas of bing cherries and strawberry. Champagne quality without the sticker shock. $202019 Siduri Russian River Valley Pinot Noir - The consistency of the Siduri brand which was acquired by Jackson Family Wines several years ago continues unabated. Adam Lee may no longer be the winemaker but the assertive and beautiful Pinot Noir style he pioneered continues. Black cherry and spicy raspberry flavors on the palate, medium in length with good acidity. A very attractive entry level Pinot Noir. $302020 Bedrock Wine Co. Old Vine Zinfandel - Morgan Twain-Peterson crafts this deep ruby colored wine from old vineyards (some 100+ years old) throughout Sonoma County. Made with native yeast fermentation and aged in French and Austrian oak puncheons and foudres. In the glass black and red fruit, lavender and pepper aromas. On the palate black plums, a round texture with good acidity and length. Drink and enjoy this youthful Zinfandel now and do yourself a favor and save a few bottles for the next few years. $222019 Hess Collection Allomi Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon - This 79% Cabernet Sauvignon 9% Petite Sirah 5%Malbec 4% Merlot 3% Petit Verdot blend comes from the Allomi vineyard in Pope Valley of northeast Napa Valley. Black and blue fruit, tobacco and oak lead the way for this seemlessly integrated full bodied red. A cushy textured mouthfeel with a long finish. $302019 Obsidian Ridge Lake County Cabernet Sauvignon - 94% Cabernet Sauvignon 2% Petit Verdot 2%Malbec 1% Petite Sirah 1% Syrah. Grown in the volcanic rich soils of the Red Hills of Lake County the wine is aged for 18 months in Hungarian oak barrels. Black fruit, black cherry and vanilla, full bodied and tannic. $35 Show LInks:Best WinesColumbia Winery Tasking RoomLets talk with Maureen DowneyAMOS Electric Autonomous Tractor Tour Visits LodiMendoza declares emergency after late season frostFreak frost hits Argentinian vineyards as Mendoza declares emergencyE & J.

Who doesn't love a good deal, especially when it comes to wine?!? In wine, you often hear about QPR as a measure for a good wine at a great price. But, can you really find good Pinot Noir at a price that is reasonable? And what is QPR anyway? We'll tell you! In this episode, we begin our search for high QPR Pinot Noir, and we taste and review three Pinot Noirs with strong reviewer ratings and that are under $20 to see if we think they fit the bill! And, we discuss what QPR is, as well as what criteria you can use to determine if a wine has a good QPR. Join us on this fun and funny adventure!

A classic example of a wine bouquet is the smell of vanilla, which usually comes from aging wine in new oak barrels.Mentions: Sam Lange, Beverly's Restaurant, Jenny and David Somera, Brenda and Matt Sparkman, Drink Washington State, Mumm, Frichette, Sara Wilson, Bottle Joy, Coeur D'alene FRESH Wine Bar, Candle in the Woods, Vicino Pizza, Naomi Boutz, Flame and Cork, Fire, Wine Text.Check out episodes 055, 095, 113, 114 and 129.Wines we enjoyed this week: Maryhill Winemaker's Red, Elsom Cellars Syrah and a 2013 Lake Coeur d'Alene Red Wine.Please find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/WineTimeFridays), Twitter (@VintageTweets) and Instagram (@WineTimeFridays).

We have arrived at The Matheson.A great new restaurant in Healdsburg,California. Chef Valette's kitchen is a place of creative collaboration. The menu is an ever-changing reflection of our micro-season's offerings. Prepared with finesse, each dish celebrates the land and the moment. Chef Matt Brimer's menu is a modern ode to Healdsburg's micro-seasonal ingredients, exploring the possibilities of a locally foraged fungi from a secret stand on the slopes of rolling forest, or the range of a Purple Heart tomato cultivated from a farm within walking distance to the restaurant. For Chef Brimer and team, finding the limitlessness in the specific moment is a play of craft and passion. This will be my first time at The Matheson and will be joined by Greg Morthale winemaker for Davis Bynum and Rodney Strong vineyards. Greg Morthole started working for Rodney Strong Vineyards in 2005, when he accepted a job as lab director. His acumen for winemaking became immediately clear and he quickly ascended to associate winemaker in late 2007. In the spring of 2010, Greg was promoted to Davis Bynum Winemaker, overseeing all aspects operations and winemaking. Morthole first met Davis Bynum in the fall of 2010 and their relationship became a real friendship with regular lunch dates where they talked about a wide range of topics. “Davis was always gentleman and we grew to have a great relationship.” We will have three great features for you today,and please click on the links at the bottom to enjoy the audio features. The first to produce single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir in 1973, Davis Bynum was instrumental in bringing the prestige to Russian River Valley vineyards, still acclaimed as one of California's finest Chardonnay and Pinot Noir growing regions. Today, almost 50 years later, the heritage of Davis Bynum lives on through the hand-crafted creation of wines grown exclusively in Russian River Valley. Please join us as we open a few great wines and enjoy the great dishes at The Matheson. Cheers! Click here and join us as we enjoy great food and wine .

Wines: Fresh Vine 2019 Pinot Noir & 2020 Cabernet SauvignonWhen considering what wines will fit into your lifestyle, it's important to determine for yourself which factors are important to you. For some, world-view or food sourcing best practices are paramount, for others, dietary concerns or weight management are important to consider, for some, pricing and quality are primary.In developing the concept of the Wine Taste Filter, we identified four different categories of the varying concerns most consumers have, which we are calling “mountains” and we understand each of these concerns isn't for everyone, which is why we're asking: which mountains are YOU willing to climb? We want to help you identify your priorities when fitting wine into your lifestyle by giving you information and tools to decipher those crazy wine labels and marketing buzzwords to help you determine which wines fit those priorities.Listen to hear us breakdown the categories and describe what factors fall under each.

This interview is with Levi Seed of the Joel Palmer House Restaurant. In this interview, Levi discusses how childhood experiences shaped his professional development. After surviving leukemia as a teenager, Levi discovered a passion for fine dining, and then, for wine. He passed the Certified Master Sommelier exam at 21. Stints as a sous chef, and later on as an executive chef, left him burnt out, but he couldn't pass up the opportunity in 2020 to join the Joel Palmer House as a sommelier. For the past two years, Levi has thoughtfully crafted a curated list of Oregon wines, focusing on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Levi also speaks about his approach to hospitality and wine selection, and his hopes for the future of the Oregon wine industry. This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt at Joel Palmer House Restaurant in Dayton on November 9, 2022.

It's the HOLIDAYS. Thanksgiving wines begin the holiday celebrations Please Check out non alcoholic choices also . To begin any celebration, bubbles are always appropriate. New York Hard Ciders and Thanksgiving wines NY is the only choice, in my opinion, and the best producers of Hard ciders. Angry Orchard is the most popular NY hard cider and the most widely distributed. Ryan Burk is the Cider Master. He treats cider making as though he was making a fine wine, in that he discusses, native, wild yeasts, terroir and fermentation. They use predominantly New York State apples, Baldwin, Rome and Rhode Island green apples that are grown in New York. Once they are picked in September, October, they sort by hand, on a conveyer belt. They toss out the bad apples and then run the apples through a shower. Next the apples get a good soaking to remove dirt, stones and stems. Lastly a final wash before they go to the “ mashing process.” This produces the juice sans pumice. Ryan talks about native and wild yeasts which occur naturally on the apple skins and leaves. This produces specific terroir ( my kind of language). The fermentation takes place in used barrels which are neutral, meaning no oak flavor, is imparted to the cider blend. The ciders are usually filtered. Ryan mentions that they experiment with wine yeasts also. Great video on the entire process. https://youtu.be/iIriESwXy2c The top ciders in my opinion are: https://www.angryorchard.com/, http://www.aaronburrcider.com/, http://www.badseedhardcider.com/ Our American fare is quite heavy. Therefore you want wines that will cut through the fatThanksgiving wines are the hot topic of course. Many people choose Pinot Noir or another red. These are actually not good choices because our American holiday fare is very rich. We actually want wines that cut the fat and richness of our Thanksgiving feast. Therefore a full bodied white wine such as Chardonnay, only slightly oaked, preferably unoaked is better. Sauvignon Blanc is also a perfect choice. If you want to choose domestic wines, I suggest: ZD WINES Napa: Chardonnay is stunning. They produce a very crisp Sauvignon Blanc. They make a very substantial Pinot Noir and they are famous for their Cabernet. www.ZDWines.com. Robert SINSKEY also Napa is famous for his Pinot Noir. However, choose the Pinot Blanc and the Abraxas ( white varietals blend) and definitely the Vin Gris of Pinot Noir, which is a Rose'. Yes Rose's are really the exciting wines for Thanksgiving. www.Robert SINSKEY.com all organic vines. I prefer the European style wines however, for Thanksgiving. Therefore I would choose an AOC Chablis, a chenin Blanc from Loire, a Sancerre also. You might venture into Cru Beaujolais for the reds. Serve these gamay varietal wines slightly chilled. Contact email@example.com for prices and where to purchase. www.chezvalerie.us @valeriehail

(Excuse the sound in the 1st couple of minutes. It clears up thereafter). First Friday of November and last weekend before we plunge into early darkness as DST ends and the long cold winter nears: but enough about the election as we had lots of fun on our latest "Into the Night" On @NoFilterNetwork World Series talk and an exquisite break down of the breaks of the Phillies which suddenly broke in games 4 and 5 as the Series WILL end in Houston this weekend. Live Wine talk and Tasting with the Brunos from Napa at MathewBruno.com (no relation) but the Pinot Noir pour was excellent and the finish was superb! The big story was the sigh of relief as the entire nation awaits the end of this wretched election season (formerly known as election day) and the avalanche of awful TV and radio ads, plus an International #TwoChicksAtTheSameTime story. Tony Bruno covers News, Politics, Sports & Entertainment like no other & it will keep you laughing all night long.

Once in awhile a guest comes to the studio that takes over the show. Lia is one of those guests. Knowledgeable, fun, engaging and intriguing would be a few adjectives I would use to describe our conversation. And the wines were great too! lol. The Glenelly Estate is producing amazing Bordeaux style wines...butwait, they also produce Chardonnay and Pinot Noir; which is perfectly fine for Lia, she was raised in Burgundy, France. The history of South African wines is intriguing and the history of the proprietor of Glenelly, May de Lencquesaing, is nothing short of Bordeaux royalty. Have a listen to this fascinating story.
Oded Shakked, owner and winemaker at Longboard Vineyards, is back on California Wine Country with Steve Jaxon and Dan Berger. He was last on the show in 2020 on this episode during the pandemic, when all the guests were calling in on the phone. Previously he was also on the show in 2018 on this episode. Oded is a surfer so that explains the name Longboard Vineyards. He has lived, worked and surfed on four continents, says his website. Click the logo to visit our sponsor Bottle Barn online for the coolest bargains on wine, beer and spirits. Longboard Vineyards was founded in 1998, while Oded was a winemaker for J Vineyards. He started Longboard Vineyards as a hobby and he has been doing it solo since 2005. He speaks Hebrew, French, Spanish and English. Dan Berger likes Longboard's Pinot Noir and Oded credits his growers, including Rochioli. Dan Berger brought another of his cellar wines today, a Silvaner, which is in a bottle shaped like the old Mateus bottles. It is very dry. Join the Rodney Strong mailing list to receive special offers, information on new releases, and more. Albariño Oded has brought an Albariño. There is also a Portuguese cousin that in that language is written Alvarinho. This is the wine he would drink while on surf trips to northern Spain and Portugal. The grapes are grown in Russian River Valley. Dan says that this wine has strong acidity. Oded wanted it to be strong like that but not too strong. It was fermented in neutral barrels. Chicken apple sausage is Dan's food pairing idea. Longboard Vineyards still makes sparkling wines, Brut, Brut Rosé and Brut Z with no sugar. Sauvignon Blanc is the one most found in distribution. He also makes a Rochioli Chardonnay and this Albarinño. The Albarinño is a semi-floral variety but it is a lot more serious than a Pinot Grigio. It also has some white peach flavors. Oded sums it up with one term: yummy! Carignane and Syrah He has also brought a Carignane. At one time this was one of the most popular varietals. It is from Vincenzo Vineyard in Mendocino County. He only sells it from the barrel into a growler. "Exotic, rustic, tasty,... pizza wine," declares Dan. It is a single vineyard. Oded descsribes cherry flavors in the bouquet. The next wine to taste is a Longboard Syrah. Dan says to give it five or six more years. Oded suggests it would go with fish. The winery is located in Healdsburg at 5 Fitch Street, open 11 am to 6 pm daily. They welcome walk-ins, but groups of 6 or 8 or more can make reservations.

Maggie Holt had been to Bainberry Manor 25 years before, when she was only five years old. In fact she had lived there for 20 days before the ghosts, and tales of fathers killing daughters on the premises drove her family away and inspired her father to write a telling novel of their harrowing ordeal. Now, Maggie has inherited the old mansion and, against her mother's wishes, she's headed back to fix it up to sell. Some stories are best kept in the past, and when Maggie enters the house a former occupant, Martha, the housekeeper, Elsa and Walt, the caretaker all have their own version of events. Who can Maggie trust, and how much of her father's book was true? Listen and find out! What could we sip over ghost stories but wine from a haunted winery? Today we are tasting a 2017 Korbel Brut Natural sparkling wine that is fruit-forward, acidic, and yeasty with notes of toast. This house-style bubbly is 65% Pinot Noir and 35% Chardonnay and 100% spooky. Aaron Heck, the Korbel winery owner's son, based the movie Altergeist upon the haunted winery and suicides that happened on the property. That is not the sort of spirit you enter the wine aisle looking for! --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/readingbetweenthewines/support

He talks about his experience working for a Burgundian estate and goes on to explain why he later moved to California. Even though Ted currently resides at his Sonoma Coast winery, he consults for wineries across California, Oregon, and even New Zealand. In fact, he was the original consulting winemaker for Gary Andrus at Archery Summit, and has also worked with Weber Vineyard and Fuqua Vineyard. Ted compares the French, Californian, and Oregonian wine communities and also goes over what it is like running his own winery. Later, Ted talks about his winemaking philosophy and his passion for biodynamic viticulture. He also speaks about generative agriculture and his vineyard management style when it comes to growing his own Pinot Noir and Chardonnay varieties. At the end, Ted talks about the future of Littorai Wines and what plans are in the works. This interview was conducted by Rich Schmidt over Zoom on June 6th, 2022.

The Psychosis of Instagram, Social Media Why are we so compelled to strive for LIKES, VIEWS, FRIENDS, GOING VIRAL?” Price Pritchett, Ph.D. guides us to believe in our potential for the ability to CREATE. We are here to create something powerful, unique and even spiritual that lasts through eternity. He teaches us that schools that give “ failing” grades to children are teaching them that they are FAILURES even at a young age. The schools set them up for the inability to experiment, to think differently, to use their imagination, to take RISKS!! When we relish these numbers on social media we are feeding our minds a type of psychosis. Example.. I experienced this and backed out of a class that was teaching vital (NOT viral ) information and techniques. However, this teaching simply didn't ring TRUE with my inner values. I don't need to create something that is based on views, likes or going viral. My mission is to serve others and help them create a blueprint for a life they deserve: That process begins with changing a mindset, through the process of journaling. Then guiding people to Tap Down the NEGATIVE. LASTLY, daily visioning. Price Pritchett teaches us these same steps in his short book You2 Strategy.

This week's show covers the southern part of the Côte de Beaune, south of Meursault. In this part of the Côte de Beaune you will find some of the most famed, stunning Chardonnay on earth. We start with a recap of episode 455 to tie these two shows together. Then we work our way through the southern half of the Côte de Beaune and the most famed Chardonnays in the world from the Montrachet family of vineyards. Like the first show, this is quite a download and we try to provide a structure for understanding this study in terroir, which sets us up well to do deeper dives on other parts of Bourgogne so we can understand the villages even better. As in the first show, we don't need much in the notes besides this wonderful map from the Vins de Bourgogne site, but I'll throw a few things down here just for recap. Here are the show notes: We discuss the pricing of Burgundy and why wines are so expensive. We talk about the difference between Burgundy and Napa that was sparked by a conversation on Patreon. Here is the podcast I talk about with Laurent Delaunaywhere we address some of the pricing issues. We talk a bit about the negociant system and the secondary market before moving to the communes. _____________________________ This show covers the southern communes of the Côte de Beaune only, from Blagny to Marange Blagny (Blaeh-NE -- Pinot Noir) Between Puligny-Montrachet and Meursault, Blagny is a small village appellation with red wines exclusively of Pinot Noir. The majority of wine is classified as Premier Cru. Whites are permitted to be Meursault or Puligny-Montrachet, but not Blagny – since white is often better here, Blagny is not well-known because the name is only for red Blagny has steeper vineyards than most spots in Burgundy and they are at higher altitudes 340- 400 metres/1,116 -1,312 ft vineyards. In the past, vignerons didn't want to make wine in the village because it was too cool, but with climate change it is becoming more popular Blagny's Pinot is like red fruit, black fruit, sandalwood, and spice. With age which it needs because tannins can be strong, leather, pepper, cocoa, licorice, earthy, gamy notes appear. St. Aubin: (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) Aubin is between Chassagne-Montrachet and Puligny-Montrachet, but it does not lie on the main Côte d'Or escarpment, but rather in a valley west of Chassagne. In warmer years, this cooler climate area does well, especially the top Premier cru En Remilly, Murgers des Dents de Chien (means teeth of the dog -due to the sharp stones there) and La Chatenière Aubin grows a majority of white (Chardonnay), and the best sites arecloser to Puligny and Chassagne. Common notes are white flowers, lime, flint, chalk, mineral, almond, hazelnut, orange, mineral, and cinnamon. St. Aubin blanc can be sharp in youth or can be full – depending on vintage, terroir and producer. With age the wine is more like beeswax and honey and marzipan. Whites can age up to 10 years. The Pinot Noir is has black fruit with spice and cocoa notes. The wine can be tannic in youth but becomes softer and more herbal with 5-8 years. Puligny-Montrachet & Chassagne-Montrachet (with Meursault, termed the "Côte des blancs" or “the slope of the "whites" Puligny-Montrachet (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) A very small vineyard area (95 ha/235 acres) of nearly all Chardonnay –the terroir is complex in Puligny. The hillside has many different limestone, marl, and alluvial soils. The slopes face east and southeast. Four Grands Crus of Montrachet are located in the borders of Puligny. Top Premiers Crus: Le Cailleret, Les Pucelles, Les Demoiselles, Les Combettes, Folatières The Chardonnay is known for floral, mineral, marzipan, hazelnut, lemongrass, croissant, honey, lemon curd, limeade, peach, and green apple aromas and flavors. Producers traditionally use oak fermentation and aging but the flavors are restrained. We discuss the Grands Crus, all in the southern part of the appellation: Bâtard-Montrachet (10.27 ha/25.38 acres, shared with Chassagne) and Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet (3.43 ha/8.48 acres, all in Puligny) are lower down the hill from Montrachet. The wines are honeyed and minerally, but less rich than Le Montrachet and Chevalier-Montrachet Le Montrachet (9.59 ha/ 23.7 acres, shared with Chassagne) is considered the best white wine on earth. The Grand Cru is from the ideal mid-slope. The wines are (apparently) elegant with powerful fruit, minerality, smoke, toasty aromas and flavors. Bottles start at about US$600/bottle Chevalier-Montrachet (7.48 ha/18.48 acres, only in Puligny) is nearly as good as Le Montrachet, lying at a higher elevation, with less clay Photo Credit: BIVB Chassagne (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir) Chassagne is one of the largest communes in the Cote d'Or with 761 acres/308 ha – Chardonnay is 70% of production and Pinot Noir is 30%. With complex soils, there is a range of quality and flavor in the village wines. The Chardonnay has pronounced mineral, white flower (verbena, honeysuckle), toasted almonds, toast (from oak), and fresh butter. The wine can be like peach in riper years. They are full but always have a backbone of acidity. The Pinots are fruity with black fruit, strawberry briar, and earth notes. It is soft but has tannin and needs time to mellow. There are 55 Premier crus of varying quality, since most of the steep slopes are for Premier Crus and Grands Crus of Chardonnay, much of the Village wine on the flatter areas is Pinot Noir Grands Crus: Shared with Puligny: Bâtard Montrachet, Le Montrachet Criots-Bâtard-Montrachet: 100% in Chassagne -- 1.57 ha/3.88 acres, very small production From the Bourgogne Website: To remember their names, here is the story they offer: The Seigneur of Montrachet set off on a crusade, entrusting his virgin daughter to his favorite Chevalier (knight). In his absence, what happened, happened, and a child was born illegitimately. On his return from the Crusades, the Seigneur discovered this Bâtard (bastard), who started to cry when he saw him. The Seigneur then said: “Criots-Bâtard!” (The bastard cries!). But he was a good man, and welcomed the child into the family with these words: “Bienvenues-Bâtard-Montrachet” (Welcome, Bastard of Montrachet). Santenay (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) This is the last major village of the Côte d'Or and makes nearly all red wine, only 1/8 is Chardonnay. The orientation is still eastern and southern but here there is a shift to more southerly facing vineyards, still with limestone and clay. Santenay's Pinot Noir is earthy, with dark flower notes like rose petals, violet, red fruit and licorice. It can have lighter tannin, is acidic, and is a great intro to Burgundy that we can sort of afford. The Chardonnay is minerally and floral with great acidity, and a trace of nuts and spice. Maranges MAHR-ohnjhze (Pinot Noir and Chardonnay) This is where a total shift takes place and the Côte de Beaune terroir changes. In Maranges, the hills face south and southwest and the slopes become gentler, soils break down and become more of a patchwork. Gentler slopes, more heat and heavy clay lead to dark, rich wines (they were used as vins de médecin, to beef up the wines of the Côte de Nuits in bad years, so they never focused much on their own quality). Maranges is located in a different administrative department, Saône-et-Loire, where the Côte Chalonnaise lies. It's made up of three villages of Cheilly-lès-Maranges, Dezize lès-Maranges and Sampigny-lès-Maranges The Pinot Noir is fuller and darker with red preserves, black cherry, earth, licorice, pepper, and less nuance. The wines have smooth tannin, medium acidity and are similar to those of the Côte Chalonnaise. The Chardonnay is floral with minerals and honey, it is an easy drinking wine. We hope you enjoyed the two part series on the Côte de Beaune. Lots to learn and this is just the start.
