Muga Blanco 2015

Muga Blanco 2015

Ref: A0760215

The grapes, 90% Viura and 10% Malvasia, are double checked before going into the winery with up to 50% of the harvest being rejected if necessary. Slow fermentation follows in new French oak after which the wine spends 3 months on fine lees. (2015 13.5% abv)

The result wine is a bright yellow, very pale wine with a remarkable greenish component (bigger than is usual due to vintage). This green hue tells us about the excellent state of conservation of this wine. On the nose it is the most floral vintage that we can remember. Usually, the fresh fruit (especially peaches) is the first thing one notices but this time, fresh fruit lies in the background with notes of green cut hay and citrus, pineapple and apple. The typical spices of the oak lie way in the background but we can expect them to appear more strongly after some time in the bottle.

In 2015 Robert Parker commented:- Muga Blanco (Barrel Fermented) 2014 "is from an extremely dry vintage that required a strict selection of the white grapes that are intermixed with the reds in the old vineyards. It is 90% Viura with the rest Malvasia. The must is fermented in new, mostly Nevers, 500-litre oak barrels with partial malolactic (about 20%) and aged for five months in contact with their lees. 150,000 bottles were produced. The Mugas have been paying special attention to their whites and I've seen a big improvement in this barrel-fermented bottling. It has a flowery, clean nose with notes of white fruit and spices. The palate is fresh with well-integrated oak., pungent spicy flavours and good acidity. Drink 2014-2016. (88 points)

Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
Chassagne Montrachet Blanc 2014, Jean-Marc Morey
A fantastic white Burgundy from Jean-Marc Morey, Côte de Beaune, which exhibits a purity of rich fruit (coupled with a mouth-tingling freshness) that is rare to find.

Vacqueyras Cuvée Doucinello 2011
Vacqueyras Cuve Doucinello 2011
Recently, Robert Parker put Serge’s wines in to the superstar category but, typical of the man, he has maintained our allocation just as it was before, despite phenomenal demand from the USA.
