Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

You may remember I blogged last week on 24 May about a book called 1000 years of annoying the French by Stephen Clarke in which I told you about Napoleon drinking champagne. Well here is another wine related story this time during the first world war. An American soldier called Arthur Guy Empey wrote a book called Over the top in which is relates the profiteering by the French. In his book he gives a glossary of the vocabulary used by the troops. So here are a couple of examples:

Estaminet: A French public house or saloon where muddy water is sold as beer

Vin rouge: French wine made from vinegar and red ink

Vin blanc: French wine made from vinegar. They forgot the red ink!

Thought that would put a smile on your face.

Grainger’s wine blog is gfwineblog.co.uk

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there. In Grainger’s wine blog today is our weekly wine review. Guide no 21 of my review of all the wines on our wine list at www.gfwine.co.uk   Our list covers most of the wine regions of France and so you should have no trouble in finding a wine to suit your palate. Todays review on Grainger’s wine blog is a wine from the  region of the Loire valley in France. Our wine review of the week is a wine from Vignoble Gibault.    The wine is from the appellation  of  Valéncay AOC.

Vignoble Gibault is situated in the epicentre of three provinces: Berry, Touraine and Sologne, the vineyard extends over two appellation covering the Valençay and Touraine.

The vineyards are on the terraces of the ancients river Cher a tributary of the mighty Loire river and vines grow on two types of ground the flinty clays and shelly clays.

The vines are cultivated with respect for the environment and they use natural technique in their vinification processes.

The grapes are picked when fully ripened and vinified using the modern techniques of temperature control. The priority is to extract a maximum of fruit aromas and just the right amount of tannin to produce a perfect structure …. so that the wine remains a pleasure.

Smoothness and complexity for the “Valençay”, unctuousness and strength for the “Touraine”, beautifully refreshing for the “Vins de Pays”, light bubbles and refinement for the Methode Traditionelle…. The experience of drinking the wines gives you pleasure and enjoyment.

This is a medium light red still wine made from 60% Pinot Noir, 30% Gamay and 20% Malbec grapes. Each of the different grapes are vinified separately and then the pulp is presed with blending of the juices before malolactic fermentation. The blended wine is aged in vts for 12 to 18 months. Powerful on the nose with red fruit aromas and spicy notes. Coats the palate with silky tannins and really good balance. Serve slightly chilled at 12-14°C with a starter, roast meats and game.

Sundays in France are good for Brocantes, antique fairs and you will usually find one somewhere in your area whilst on holiday. Here in our area of the Loire valley we have one in Montreuil Bellay on the first Sunday, Montsoreau on the second Sunday, Chinon on the third Sunday and Saumur on the fourth Sunday ie last Sunday. We ventured into town quite late in the morning/lunchtime and strolled around on a lovely sunny day amongst the stalls. As it was lunchtime the stall holders were enjoying their lunch with a glass of wine of course. When we have guests staying we always give them a ‘what’s on’ note for the week and so inevitably we meet them at the fairs. On Sunday it was John and Pauline from all the way from Australia, and Paul and Lauren (and Tuna) from UK here in the pic taking it easy at a street café enjoying a coffee in the sunshine. Paul likes his wines and enjoyed our complimentary bottle of Domaine deL’Enchantoir Saumur rouge. John and Pauline too enjoyed our wines the Saumur rouge and blanc from Enchantoir and a Chardonnay IGP from Chateau de Brossay. These wines are available from us at www.gfwine.co.uk. Have a look at our selection of wines from all over France. Life in France moves along at a leisurely pace so its ideal if you looking for a break from your hectic schedule to take it easy and enjoy some downtime why not come over for a wine tour and combine it with some sightseeing.

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

Grainger’s wine blog weekly wine offer this week at www.gfwine.co.uk  is a Loire valley wine from Domaine de la Saugourde.  This is an Anjou blanc appellation  wine from the cellars of Francois Letheuil. A traditional dry soft white wine from the region. The wine is on offer at £6.99 reduced from £8.99. A terrific price. It is made from the Loire white grape chenin blanc with a little chardonnay. The wine is typical Anjou that is dry with a slight softness so although fresh its not too acidic.

The estate is owned and run by the Letheuil family who have been making wine for over 100 years. Francois Letheuil has been the winemaker for the past 20 years. The vineyard extends to some 20 hectares over a wide variety of soils from the valley bottom up to the escarpment above. The parcels on the river bank produce the Anjou Blanc wines made from Chenin Blanc, the classic white grape of the region. The Cabernet Franc from these parcels are used in the production of the dry fruity rose wine Rose de Loire appellation.

On the schist soils higher up the valley side Francois grows the Chenin for the production of the famous sweet wines of the Coteaux du Layon appellation. The grapes are left on the vines during the autumn and when the mist rises up the valley it promotes the development of the ‘Noble Rot’ which concentrates the sugars. These grapes are hand picked and fermented into soft fruity sweet wines. The deep and fruity light Anjou reds are made from the Cabernet Franc grapes grown on the limestone soils of the escarpment. Francois has invested in a modern cellar with stainless steel fermentation vats with central temperature control heating/cooling facilities for all the vats. This allows wines to be fermented and stored at optimum temperatures to allow the full character of the wine to be achieved.

The vineyards wines are well received in France, most of their wines being sold locally and in other parts of the country. We are fortunate to have forged a relationship with Francois to allow us to offer small quantities of each vintage for sale in the UK.

Punts

A punt, also known as a kick-up, refers to the dimple at the bottom of a wine bottle. There is no consensus explanation for its purpose. The more commonly cited explanations include:

  • It is a historical remnant from the era when wine bottles were free blown using a blowpipe and pontil. This technique leaves a punt mark on the base of the bottle; by indenting the point where the pontil is attached, this scar would not scratch the table or make the bottle unstable.
  • It had the function of making the bottle less likely to topple over—a bottle designed with a flat bottom only needs a small imperfection to make it unstable—the dimple historically allowed for a larger margin of error.
  • It consolidates sediment deposits in a thick ring at the bottom of the bottle, preventing much/most of it from being poured into the glass; this may be more historical than a functional attribute, since most modern wines contain little or no sediment.
  • It increases the strength of the bottle, allowing it to hold the high pressure of sparkling wine/champagne.
  • It provides a grip for riddling a bottle of sparkling wine manually in the traditional champagne production process.
  • It consumes some volume of the bottle, allowing the bottle to be larger for the same amount of wine, which may impress the purchaser.
  • Taverns had a steel pin set vertically in the bar. The empty bottle would be thrust bottom-end down onto this pin, puncturing a hole in the top of the punt, guaranteeing the bottle could not be refilled [folklore].
  • It prevents the bottle from resonating as easily, decreasing the likelihood of shattering during transportation.
  • It allows bottles to be more easily stacked end to end.
  • Bottles could be stacked in cargo holds on ships without rolling around and breaking.
  • Punts are also used to help pour the wine, providing a grip for the thumb on the bottom bottle for easy pouring.
  • It makes the bottle easier to clean prior to filling with wine. When a stream of water is injected into the bottle and impacts the punt, it is distributed throughout the bottom of the bottle and removes residues.
  • The claim that the larger the punt the finer the wine in the bottle is an old wives tale  which wine experts have dismissed as nonsense

There you go plenty of options.

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

Here’s a bit of history for you. I am currently reading a very good book called 1000 years of annoying the French by Stephen Clarke. Its a great read and I’ve read a number of Stephen’s books. The Merde series are funny and enjoyable. Anyway back to the history bit which of course involves wine as this is a wine  blog. Apparently Napoleon Bonaparte before every battle would drink Champagne. One of his mottos was ‘In victory you deserve it , in defeat you need it’ He had developed a taste for Champagne whilst studying in the region and thereafter, the story goes, he never failed to stop off on his way to foreign parts to stock up. Its a credible theory because the road from Paris to Prussia, Russia, Poland and Belgium leads through Champagne ( although the theory falls down for Austria, Italy and Spain). Anyway, before the battle of Waterloo against the Duke of Wellington, Napoleon apparently did not drink his customary bottle of champagne and paid the price of abstinence. Defeat.

There you are something to add to your historical knowledge.

Grainger’s wine blog. The one and only wine blog for all you winos out there.

In Grainger’s wine blog today is our weekly wine review.

Guide no 20 of my review of all the wines on our wine list at www.gfwine.co.uk   Our list covers most of the wine regions of France and so you should have no trouble in finding a wine to suit your palate.

Todays review on Grainger’s wine blog is a wine from the  region of Provence in France. Our wine review of the week is a wine from Chateau de Fontlade.    The wine is from the appellation  of  Coteaux Varois en Provence AOC.

The estate of Chateau de Fontlade lies on the former Roman road Via Aurelia and have been documented since the 10th century. The vineyards cover about 35 hectares and are classified under the Côtes de Provence appellation and produce rosé under this appellation. Production is 75% rosé, 15% red and 10% white.

The estate works to a commitment of reasonable agriculture and uses only methods that will not harm the vined and respects the environment. The estate grape varieties are Syrah, Grenache, Cinsault, Cabernet Sauvignon and Rolle (also called Vermentino). With its continental climate of cold winters and hot summers together with the stony soils the long tradition of wine making goes way back to Roman times. The Coteaux Varois en Provence appellation produces generous wines typical of the appellation – hearty reds, aromatic rosés, and fresh flowery whites.

The estate is one of Provence’s top wine makers and it has been recognised as such by winning gold, silver and bronze medals in Macon and in Paris as well as favourable reviews in the press.

The rosé wine is macerated for 5 to 6 hours and is bled not pressed and kept at 17°C  during fermentation to enhance the fruitiness of the wine. The reds are Syrah based. One cuvee is vat aged whilst the one made from older vines is aged in old oak barrels to preserve the aromas of the wine and give it a refined elegance. The small quantities of white are also oak aged to give a full and delicate complexity to the wine.

This is a  rosé wine made from 50% Cinsault and 50% Grenache grapes. An elegant dry style with a pleasant nose of red fruits and peach. A long and aromatic mouth with good structure and a long fresh finish. Serve at 6-8°C as an aperitif, summer meals, barbequed fish, summer puddings and even with a far eastern style meal as long as it’s not spicy.
