Champagne Jacques Copin

January marks the time of our annual first wine tasting in Washington DC. The first wine event of the year is sponsored by APVSA – Association pour la Promotion des Vins et Spiritueux en Amérique du Nord (the Association for the Promotion of Wine and Spirits in North America). The  team at APVSA is led by Pascal Fernand, who helps client wineries and distilleries find distributors in North America. The three-week tour, if producers attend all the events, covers the United States, Mexico and Canada.

Mathieu Copin of Champagne Jacques Copin

I tend to visit champagne producers at this event. My first stop was Champagne Jacques Copin where I met Mathieu Copin who previously answered several questions via email. 

WTT: What are your most enjoyable aspects of winemaking/vineyard?Mathieu Copin: Harvest because it’s the result of a year of work . 

WTT: How many hectares/acres of grapes are you growing? Which varieties are you growing? 
Mathieu Copin: 10 ha (27.4 acres), only in Marne Valley region. 3 grapes varieties: Pinot meunier (70%) Pinot noir and Chardonnay (15% each).

WTT: To what do you contribute the success of your champagne house?Mathieu Copin: Four reasons:
1. Family and independent estate in all the production process from grapes to  champagne making. 
2. Recognized for our Cuvée Tradition Brut (non vintage champagne) with 3 years of aging and not a common blend of (90% meunier…).
3. Constant evolution of our estate. 40 000 bottles in 2010. Nearly 80 000 in 2019. 
4. The vineyard.

WTT: How will your champagne house change and grow in the next five years? Mathieu Copin: Always buying more dry matter locally same if its more expensive for example, we already buy our empty bottles, labels, cases in a 30km area from estate to have less CO2 impact on environment and more social  “contract” with our local terroir.

No more chemical treatment. This is already the case for herbicides and insecticides, but we will never be with an “organic certification” Champagne. 

Test of agroforestry to help to increase biodiversity and reduce erosion.

WTT: What would you like the public to know about your champagne and champagne house?
Mathieu Copin: We use only our 100% grapes coming from our own land. We do not buy grapes, juice or even more terrible finished bottles produced by another winemaker or cooperative as do some of the big brands in the middle. Each year our wines are regular in taste, balance and aromas and always reflect our terroir with passion and festivity as should be a beautiful and good true champagne from the Champagne region of France. 

Champagne Tasting

I tasted four of the houses champagnes. The Blanc de Blancs, Extra Brut was crafted from 100% Chardonnay from a single plot. Multiple columns of tiny bottles rose to the surface of this light yellow colored champagne with 3 g/L of residual sugar. The wine was aged for three years and offered apple, citrus and a bit of freshly baked bread. The champagne was refreshing and retails for around $70.

The Tradition, Brut was made with 90% Pinot Meunier and 10% Pinot Noir. With 6 g/L residual sugar this light gold colored champagne had multiple columns of tiny bubbles. Red berry fruits were noticed on the aroma and taste and there was a creamy mouthfeel. This delicious champagne retails for about $50.

The third wine was a Rosé Brut made with 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. The wine had a salmon color with a red hue, and multiple columns of tiny bubbles forming a circumferential mousse on the wine’s surface. The wine was the sweetest with 8 g/L of residual sugar. The champagne was festive offering red berry fruits and green apple accompanied by a creamy mouthfeel. The champagne retails for around $70.

The last champagne tasted was the 2006 Ployphénols Brut. With 6 g/L of residual sugar, this yellow colored champagne had multiple columns of tiny bubbles forming a circumferential mousse on the wine’s surface. The equal blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay offered red berry fruits, green apple and freshly baked bread. The wine had a creamy mouthfeel. This is a celebratory champagne with a retail price around $120. 

Champagne Jacques Copin is looking for distributors along the east coast of the United States.

Cheers,
Terry

8 Wineries in Southern Willamette Valley

King Estate Winery in Willamette Valley

The Willamette Valley AVA is the location of many of Oregon’s wineries. More than 500 wineries are located in Willamette Valley. The valley spreads from near Portland to south of Eugene. The Willamette Valley includes seven sub-AVAs: Chehalem Mountains, Dundee Hills, Eola-Amity Hills, McMinnville, Ribbon Ridge, Yamhill-Carlton and Van Duzer Corridor.

Sweet Cheeks Pinot Noir in Willamette Valley

During November 2019 we visited eight wineries close to Eugene and Corvallis. In size, the wineries ranged from large such as King Estate with 150,000 cases to the small, boutique wineries such as Tyee Wine Cellars producing  2,000 cases of estate wines.

During our November visit to Willamette Valley we traveled to:

King Estate Winery (Eugene)
Silvan Ridge (Eugene)
Sweet Cheeks (16 miles from Eugene)
Iris Vineyards (Eugene)
Civic Winery (Eugene)
Benton-Lane Winery (Monroe)
Broadley Vineyards (Monroe)
Tyee Wine Cellars (Corvallis)

Many of these wineries are family owned and operated with some wineries now operated by the second-generation who have chosen to continue the work of their parents. It is the lifestyle that causes some younger generations to return to the winery. 

Each winery offers a warm welcome with different stories, different facilities and numerous wines, although the predominant wines seemed to be well-made Pinot Gris and Pinot Noirs.

Civic Winery in Eugene

We wrote and published articles about each of the wineries we visited in November. Check out the Oregon reviews on Wine Trail Traveler.

Choosing a Thanksgiving Wine

What wines for Thanksgiving?

With Thanksgiving Day quickly approaching, have you decided what kind of wines you may want to serve your family and friends? 

If you want to prepare any of the Thanksgiving traditional recipes with wine, check out the Wine Trail Traveler Thanksgiving recipe suggestions that use wine as an ingredient. Usually wine used in a recipe also pairs well with the meal. 

Some wine writers suggest that it is hard to pair Thanksgiving foods with wine; however, we believe that it’s a good idea to have both a red and white wine available. Sparkling wines are also good. You just can’t go wrong with favorite wines either. Oh, sure there’s one in every crowd who thinks they want to be a know-it-all, but overall if a well-made wine is served, it will be enjoyed.

A week ago we visited some wineries in the Southern area of the Willamette Valley in Oregon. As we were tasting predominantly Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir, we thought that both would pair well with the various foods on a Thanksgiving Day dinner table.

If you have any doubts about what to serve, ask at your favorite winery or wine shop.
Cheers,
Terry and Kathy

Michigan’s Newest AVA: Tip of the Mitt

Pond Hill Farm Winery vineyard with view of Lake Michigan

Last week we traveled to Michigan where we visited nine of the thirteen wineries located in the TIp of the Mitt AVA. Along the way the foliage was brightly colored with orange, red and yellow. This American Viticulture Area, the newest AVA in Michigan, was established in August 2016. The AVA is in Michigan’s Northern Lower Peninsula. Most of the Tip of the Mitt wineries are located near Little Traverse Bay which leads into the magnificent Lake Michigan.

The other AVAs in Michigan, located south or west of the Tip of the Mitt, are Lake Michigan Shore, Fennville, Leelanau Peninsula and Old Mission Peninsula.

The climate throughout the Tip of the Mitt AVA is significantly cold and therefore the wineries in the region concentrate on growing cold weather grape varieties. In fact, as we traveled into the Petoskey wine region we spent the night in Gaylord;  the next morning we awoke to a light snowfall (October 15.)

Some of the grape varieties we encountered in the Tip of the Mitt AVA included the hybrid varieties such as Frontenac Gris, Frontenac Blanc, Marquette, Vignoles, Lemberger and Traminette. A few brave wineries have added a few vinifera varieties to their vineyards including Riesling.

In the middle of October, grapes were in the process of being harvested. In particular we saw Petite Pearl and Marquette grape clusters ready and waiting to be harvested. The Petite Pearl variety is a newer hybrid grape.

The Tip of the Mitt wineries we visited included:
Seasons of the North
Rudbeckia Winery and Brewery
Crooked Vine Vineyard & Winery
Pond Hill Farm Winery Brewery Cafe Market
Mackinaw Trail Winery & Brewery
Maple Moon Sugarbush & Winery
Petoskey Farms Vineyard & Winery
Royal Farms Farm Market and Winery
Walloon Lake Winery

In addition to producing grape wines, some of the wineries are producing fruit wines as well as hard ciders and beers. Maple Moon is producing maple syrup wine and also has maple syrup Grade A and B plus produces bourbon-aged maple syrup.

The next time you are traveling in the Petoskey region of Michigan, consider stopping by wineries in the Tip of the Mitt AVA.

Visit the Wine Trail Traveler website to discover reviews of wineries in Michigan. The Tip of the Mitt reviews will be added quickly.

Cheers!

Trentodoc: Sparkling Wines from the Mountains

Partner and sommelier at Maxwell Park Wine Bar.

Recently we traveled into Washington, DC to attend a wine tasting featuring Trentodoc wines. The Trentodoc wine region is located north of Lake Garda in Italy. The DOC features sparkling wines but also produces still wines. Our Trentodoc wine tasting consisted of all sparkling wines. While we had our favorites, the best part of the tasting was that all of the sparkling wines were well made. 

The tag line for Trentodoc wines is “Sparkling Wine from the Mountains.” Trentodoc is the only wine region allowed to use this tag line. A paper we received at the wine tasting quotes Lord Byron, “Up here I live not in myself, but I become portion of that around me. And to me, high mountains are a feeling.”

After the short and concise presentation and wine tasting, a gourmet lunch was served. We were asked to choose our favorite sparkling wine to pair with the impressive lunch. Lunch finished with a light berry fruit dessert.

The Trentodoc wines would be suitable as an aperitif or paired with a variety of cuisines.  Trentodoc suggests the following pairings with its sparkling wines.

Fall Seasonal Dishes

  • Roasted chicken
  • Roasted vegetables
  • Potato and leek soup
  • Cauliflower and Brussel Sprout Gratin
  • Butternut Squash Hash
  • Roasted squash and Kale Salad
  • Minestrone soup

Traditional Trentino Dishes

  • Canederli – bread dumpling with speck
  • Polenta
  • Cheeses: Trentingrana, Casolet, Vezzena, Puzzone di Moena
  • Speck- smoked and dry cured pork
  • Luganega sausage
  • Carne salada
  • Tortel di patate
  • Gnocchi di patate alla retina
  • Bro brusà – a soup that gets its name from brewing flour in olive oil and butter and then adding water for a dense broth. Smoked pancetta or beans can be added.

Maxwell Park Wine Bar

Maxwell Park Wine Bar in Washington DC

The Maxwell Park Wine Bar  was the location of the Trentodoc wine tasting. The wine bar is located in the Shaw neighborhood of Washington DC. This is a small boutique wine bar with seating available at a counter or one of several tables. A small corner nook offers a cozy spot to enjoy wine with friends. There is also outdoor seating.

Artistic grape bunch

Unusual artistic drawings show grape clusters with faces drawn on individual grapes. These werequite unique. 

The next time you are looking for a sparkling wine, you may want to consider trying a Trentodoc sparkling wine from Italy.

Trentodoc Sparkling Wines Are Impressive

Four of the eleven sparkling wines from Trentodoc
Four of the eleven sparkling wines from Trentodoc

In late September, we had an opportunity to travel to Washington DC for a tasting of sparkling wines from the mountainous region of Italy around Trento. These classic method sparkling wines were impressive and the first wines from this region that we tasted. The event was put on by Colangelo & Partners, an integrated communications agency based in New York and San Francisco. We have attended wine events arranged by Colangelo & Partners in the past and they are always superb. The tasting and lunch took place at the Maxwell Park Wine Bar, just a couple blocks from the Convention Center.

Sabrina Schench from Trentodoc

We met Sabrina Schench from Trentodoc who explained that they are here in Washington DC to introduce the sparkling wines from their high elevation vineyards in Northeastern Italy. During the short, ten-minute presentation we learned that the region has done well in an international sparkling wine competition. Trentodoc sparkling wines led the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Competition (CSWWC) with 27 gold medals and 19 silver medals. In addition, a Trentodoc producer was awarded the Sparkling Winery of the Year. 

The sparkling wine area is predominated with plantings of Chardonnay. Pinot Nero (Pinot Noir) plantings are on the increase. To a lesser extent there are also plantings of Pinot Blanc and Pinot Meunier. These grape thrive in the mountains where diurnal temperature swings help preserve the grapes acidity and phenols. The soils are mostly a combination of limestone, alluvium soil and rocks. The vineyards in the Dolomites Mountains give the wines a signature terroir influence.
