Naick Blanc 2010


Lobenberg: Die Trauben stammen aus den Parzellen 'Minervois' und 'Minervois La Liviniere', Grenache Blanc auf reinem Kalkboden. In der Nase faszinierendes Aromenbild. Gelbe Früchte, Melone, Nüsse, Weinbergpfirsich, ein Hauch Muskat und süßliche Gewürze. Satte Mineralität, Steinmehl und Salz. Eleganter Fluss, fast etwas ölig, Ananas und Orange, breit gefächerte Aromen. Feinste Holznoten unterstreichen die außergewöhnliche Komposition. Ein traumhafter Südfranzose. 94/100

-- Katalog: -- Parker: The l'Oustal Blanc white Naick 10 - which I tasted assembled from tank - reflects Grenache Gris planted in chalky slopes above the town of La Liviniere as well as vines on gently sloping terrain below town that were part of the Baron le Roy's original 1948 mixed Grenache La Liviere plantings. Musky narcissus, myriad nut oils, and a maritime mingling of saline and alkaline scents grace the nose, then shadow a particularly polished palate lusciously informed by ripe white peach, pineapple and Persian melon. In a manner that in the world of white wine I otherwise encounter solely in certain memorable Gruner Veltliner, this then finishes with a tactile impingement, vibrancy, and grip not only memorable in themselves but totally unexpected, featuring kumquat, orange rind, pineapple core, white pepper, and crushed stone. Here is an extraordinary performance not to be missed, and one that I suspect will run successfully for the better part of a decade. Rigorous de-stemming and very gentle, watchful pressing ('as soon as you see some color, you need to cut it off and the rest of the juice can into the red for some finesse'), says Claude Fonquerle, are prerequisites for success with this wonderful cepage that is increasingly and rightfully assuming a star role in the only place on earth where it isn't absolutely rare, namely Roussillon. 93-94/100
