For the last wine-tasting in Lausanne we had 3 white wines :
- Les Genêts, Damine Laureau 2004 (served with Foie gras and onion marmelade)

- Coume Marie, La preceptorie de Centernach 2007 (Poached egg, carott cream and smoked duck breast)

- Côte de Beaune, Joseph Drouhin 2008 (Tuna confit, lobster pressed juice)

 

And 3 red wines :

- Chateau Potensac 2002 (Sirloin made as a kebab, red pepper and herb sauce)

- Mas Daumas Gassac 1996 (Linguine with a reduced parmeggiano and truffle cream)

- Vieilles Vignes, Domaine de la Monardière 2005 (Panna Cotta with red fruits and speculoos)

We will speak about red wines in another article... 

 

 

LES GENETS, DAMIEN LAUREAU 2004 :

 

01002487

 

Appellation : Savennières

Varietal : Chenin

Region : Val de Loire

 

COLOUR : Golden yellow

NOSE : Acacia, honey, almond, lanolin and white flowers

PALATE : Honey, beeswax. Mineral, the end is fresh and linear.

 

 

This is a very nice wine.

I like the fresh aftertaste as it lingers in the mouth for a long time.

 

Where can you find this wine:

- In Alencon (France) at Vins et Tradition

- Directly at Damien Laureau

 

 

COUME MARIE, LA PRECEPTORIE DE CENTERNACH 2007 :

 

 710507

Appellation : Côtes du Roussillon

Varietal : Macabeu, Grey grenache

Region : Roussillon

Owners : Marc et Thierry Parcé

 

 

COLOUR : Pale yellow

NOSE : White flowers and citrus

PALATE : Citrus, powerful and a little bit salty but fresh

 

I think that was too early to drink this wine. It was not bad but I did not enjoy so much. Now the wine is a little bit closed, not so much nose and not so much palate... We have to wait 1 or 2 years cause there is a good potential...

 

Where can you find this wine:
- Le CaveSA in Geneva
- website of the domain 

 

 

COTE DE BEAUNE, JOSEPH DROUHIN 2008

cote-de-beaune-blanc.jpg

 

Appellation : Côte de Beaune

Varietal : Chardonnay

Region : Burgundy

Owner : Joseph Drouhin

 

 

 

COLOUR : Pale gold, very bright

NOSE : Green tea, Honey, Almond and lemongrass

PALATE : Honey, Mineral, Almond, Roasted hazelnut. Very long finish.

 

 

 

A truly delicious and harmonious wine. I like it... It is not a Clos des Mouches (other amazing wine from Drouhin) but it procures a lot of pleasure.
