Michaud Sangiovese 2016, Chalone
Michaud Sangiovese 2016 grows well in the Chalone Appellation and develops red cherry, cranberry, and pomegranate flavors. The mineral-like terroir and French oak contribute to a richly textured wine with a lingering finish. Sangiovese’s natural high acidity is moderated by the growing conditions here, resulting in a well structured, yet very accessible wine. This vintage was picked as little riper than usual to explore the stylistic possibilities. One of the most frequent comments about this wine is “…hey, this actually tastes like Sangiovese.” Wines from this appellation usually develop dramatically after two to three years of bottle aging. They are enjoyable in their youth and this is facilitated by decanting one hour before serving. Food pairings include: pizza, grilled steak/prime rib, roast duck, pasta dishes and homemade polenta.
