2008 Claude Courtois Quartz


Out of stock

Looking into this glass of wine you will see a golden straw color in the glass with shimmering pale highlights. The nose offers sliced apple & poached pear backed by apple chutney spiced with brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon & allspice. The palate is very nutty, with a firm acidity. Yellow Apple flavors follow through & are joined by marzipan, hazelnut & hints of warm caramel. The wine finishes long & vibrant, with great mineral & core fruit presence & a lingering inner mouth perfume of pear eau de vie. This is a truly outstanding, complex wine.  Serve with grilled sausage, braised pork loin or grilled pork chops, savory chicken dishes, paté, cured meats & young or aged mild cheeses on rustic bread.
