Chereau Carre Wine Tasting with the Winemaker at Le Caveau Fine Wines

  • Oct 16, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Le Caveau Fine Wines

All: I noticed that Le Caveau is having a tasting coming up soon and thought you would be interested in attending.  The cost is $10 per person and you pay when you get to the shop for the tasting.  For this one, you WILL have to RSVP the shop to attend the tasting; this is not a walk-in, drop by tasting.  PLEASE RSVP THE SHOP by calling Le Caveau Fine Wines at[masked]  or e-mailing them at [masked]   If you do not RSVP, then you will not be able to get into the tasting.   The details of the tasting are located below:

Join us on Wednesday, October 16th from 6-8pm as we welcome Louise Chéreau, of the famed Chéreau Carré estate in the Muscadet wine region of the Loire Valley. This tasting is RSVP only and attendance will be limited! The cost of the event will be $10 or free to our Terroir Club Members. You can RSVP by emailing us at [masked] or calling the shop at [masked]. We will taste through these selections:

2011 Château l'Oiselinière de la Ramée Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie

2007 Chateau de Chasseloir Comte Leloup Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie ‘Cuvée des Ceps Centenaires’
92 Points: Latest rendition of the Loire wine with the longest name as well as one of the region’s most distinguished track records...the 2007 once again represents a sensational value. Scents of sea breeze; honeydew and musk melon; and fresh lemon lead into an expansive yet persistently refreshing palate, featuring rich hints of nut oils beneath bright, juicy, brine-crusted waves of melon and citrus. The finishing amalgam of musk melon, lemon, salt, chalk, and chicken stock is invigorating and lip-smacking as well as strikingly tactile in its sense of minerality. Close your eyes and just try making yourself believe that salt water and chalk have not somehow been transported into this wine – not that I’m letting my skeptical guard slip without a fight! Expect this – based on an impeccable track record – to be worth following for at least the next ten years, not that you should wait one month let alone year longer than necessary to make its acquaintance. Somehow I missed out on tasting the 2008 rendition of this classic cuvee from ungrafted vines, a deficiency I might have to wait until 2012 and a full tour of the Loire to remedy. -David Schildknecht. (, #190, Aug 2010).

2004 Chateau l'Oiseliniere Muscadet de Sevre et Maine ‘Le Clos’
92 Points: The 2004 Le Clos du Chateau l’Oiseliniere Muscadet de Sevre et Maine Sur Lie is once again an impressive and unusually ripe and lush wine for its appellation, yet one that preserves vivid salinity and a somehow crystalline, ore-like and tactile sense of mineral enhancement that I otherwise associate with great whites of Austria’s Wachau. A stronger than (for this cuvee) usual citricity – suggestive of lemon, lime, and tangerine – lends this a vivacity and practically face-smacking (not to mention lip-smacking) brightness, and while there is palpable density present as well as the aforementioned sense of fullness and lushness, there is also a lovely sense of levity that helps reel you back in for the next unforgettable sip. -David Schildknecht (, #190, Aug 2010)

2011 Clos Cibonne Cotes de Provence Rose Cuvee ‘Speciale des Vignettes’
93 points: Bright orange-pink. Smoky, spice-accented aromas of redcurrant, cherry and blood orange, plus a hint of floral oils. Chewy, penetrating and expansive on the palate, offering intense dried red fruit and citrus pith flavors that gain sweetness with air. Concentrated but energetic as well, which bodes well for food-matching. Shows superb focus and length on the tactile, red fruit-dominated finish. -Josh Raynolds (Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, Jul 13)

2012 Clos Cibonne 'Cuvée Spéciale' Tibouren Rouge
