En skuffende Coche Dury

Vinmøte Knut 28.4.16

Savennières Clos du Pappilon 2006, Domaine des Baumard
Svovel, eik, blek , grønn & transparent. Gassbind på nesa og flere var i Rhone/Marsanne. Eller når vi er litt utenfor vårt kjerneområde: Italia ! God mineralitet, ullsokker og oljet tekstur.
En merkelig og god vin. 89 poeng

Chassagne-Montrachet La Boudriotte  2004, Blain-Gagnard
Spiss syre, granitt, terroir og lett gylden. Utviklet og litt tynn 04-aktig i munnen. Jura, Savagnin ?
Vi var ikke på hvit burgund. Stikker litt, fullmoden, litt mye alkohol. Varm frukt og vanskelig finish. 88-90 poeng.

Trebbiano d`Abruzzo Riserva 2011, Marina Cvetic
Kompleks og moden munn. Appelsin, marsipan, rik med whiff av fersken. En morsom vin, men den utvikler seg negativt i glasset. Knut var entusiastisk på denne som sist ble drukket i Italia.
87-89 poeng

Bourgogne Blanc Chardonnay 2010, Domaine Coche-Dury 
Blank i uttrykket, fersk, høy i fjøset, snev av medisinskap/Paracetpille. Mangler både modenhet, dybde og farge. Bør lagres ? Grønne blader og eplekart. Fremstår idag litt undermoden. Vag og mangler Coche-definisjonen. 86-88 poeng

Cervaro della Sala, Castello della Sala 2013, Antinori
Tutti frutti, spearmint og eik. En rik vin som mange trodde var en Coche. Og det må være et kompliment !  God nese med citrustoner. Sitter overraskende bra i munnen. Chardonnay & Grechetto. 88-92 poeng

Fra hjemmeside Antinori;

The 2013 vintage, in general, was rather cool and marked by frequent precipitation, weather conditions which favored a positive growing season with a gradual and regular ripening of the grapes. The harvest period was ten to fifteen days later than the previous vintage, and picking began during the first ten days of September. After very mild weather in autumn of 2012, the winter of 2013 was characterized by slightly above average temperatures and rainfall. Spring and early summer rain left valuable reserves of ground water in the soil and slowed ripening. Seasonal warmth arrived in mid-July, and August was marked by temperature swings between daytime warmth and evening and nighttime coolness, creating conditions for a slow but constant ripening of the crop. Picking of the Chardonnay began in early September and was then followed by the picking of the Grechetto, a grape variety which, physiologically, reaches proper ripeness two weeks later. The grapes, when harvested, were healthy, ripe, and endowed with an excellent acidity.


The harvesting of the grapes for Cervaro require particular care and attention to avoid damaging oxidative processes or extraction of undesirable tannins. Picking takes place during the early hours of the morning in order to bring to the cellars grapes which are entirely intact and undamaged in their fruit, unaffected by high daytime temperatures, The care and attention continue in the cellars thanks to their particular layout and structure, conceived and programmed to function entirely by gravity flow and, accordingly, to avoid mechanical influence and effect on the grapes and must. The must, after a four hour maceration on the grape skins at 50° Fahrenheit (10°centigrade), falls directly into decanting tanks to lose its impurities before going into barrel. The fermentation and the subsequent malolactic fermentation take place in oak, and it is precisely the completion of the malolactic fermentation which determines the amount of aging time in barrel of the wine. Five months are normally sufficient, and the wine then goes into stainless steel tanks, where it is blended with the Grechetto which has been fermented on its own. Cervaro della Sala, after bottling, is given an additional twelve months of bottle aging in the historic cellars of the Castello della Sala.  before commercial release


The name of the wine, Cervaro, derives from that of the noble family which owned the castle during the 14th century: Monaldeschi della Cervara. The Antinori family purchased the property – the castle and the surrounding land - in the year 1940. The first vintage of Cervaro della Sala, the 1985, was released in 1987. The wine has been awarded various prizes and won much recognition for the consistent excellence of its quality.


Thanks to the cool growing season, the 2013 Cervaro della Sala is characterized by a notable vigor and crispness while nonetheless maintaining a Mediterranean character. Its nose shows notes of chamomile, honey, and flint. The palate is mineral in character with buttery vanilla notes which blend elegantly with flavors of tropical and citrus fruit.
