Calvet, one of Bordeaux’s oldest negociant houses, was sold to Grand Chais de France, owners of the JP Chenet brand back in 2007. The history of Calvet stretches way back however. This year, 2018 is in fact the 200th anniversary of Calvet.

In celebration they are releasing a couple of new wines – for the restaurant world. The 1818 range is the top tier of the range with the Heritage just a step below. I tasted a proto-type of both during a visit late last year; and rather good they are too.
The concept is to make the companies Bordeaux offering more accessible and easier for wine drinkers to understand. Bordeaux is lacking a touch in recognisable ‘names’, when compared say to Australia or Chile. The adoption of some stylish and ‘contemporary’ packaging should go some way to attracting more recognition.

The Cuvee 1818 and the Heritage range (which also offers wines from a variety of French wine regions) are soon to be available.

Wine That Stands Up to Pesto
It's officially summer. Unofficially, it's basil season. Right now, I am overwhelmed with the stuff. Pictured to the left is one of my behemoth basil plants. Having a lot of basil isn't exactly a problem, I admit. Who doesn't love basil? But for wine lovers, basil can make for difficult pairings. This is one assertive herb, and you need a wine that isn't going to clash with it, nor do you want your wine to disappear on the palate.















My usual go-to wine when strong green, herbal notes are part of a dish is Sauvignon Blanc. But New Zealand Sauvignon Blancs are often quite citrusy, and US Sauvignon Blancs can be too melony and soft for basil. So I opened a Chilean Sauvignon Blanc--and it was perfect with my linguine tossed with homemade pesto and topped with some heirloom cherry tomatoes.


The 2011 Viña Carmen Sauvignon Blanc Gran Reserva (available for $13-$15 in the market) is made from grapes grown in the Leyda Valley. It has vibrant aromas of grass, gooseberry, and that uniquely weird smell of boxwood that I often smell in Sauvignon Blancs from the southern hemisphere. This wine was green and leafy rather than citrusy, with a backbone of acidity that was neutral in flavor but kept your mouth watering for more. The midpalate was herbal, making me think 'this is what Cabernet Franc would taste like if it were white and not red.' Cool and refreshing, this stood up to the basil. If you have the wine with something less resolutely green, you may find that its assertiveness is a problem but if you have basil, this is a good wine to go with it--and it represents very good QPR.

Full Disclosure: I received a sample of this wine for possible review.
