📖 François 1st, in 1518, planted 80 000 vines when constructing the Chambord Castle.
In 2015 all the vines were replanted in a "lieux-dits" called " l'Ormetrou" at less then 2 kilometers from the castle.
Loved the tour and the history 👌 — 2 days ago
U couldn't name a scent it was in there
Absolutely mind blowing
Give it another 10 years easy
This wine is for rebels
Picture some well educated guy running away from a castle and knights going after him that disappear the wood
Elegance with wilderness

I looove my Great Southern Rieslings which is why I was super excited to tuck into this kindly gifted sample bottle from Castle Rock Estate (thank you!).
It’s a 2021 Porongurup Skywalk Riesling which retails for approximately $20. Definitely food friendly and also cellar worthy.
In the glass it’s a hay like colour with plentiful lemon-lime citrus characteristics, notes of apricot, musk sticks and minerality. In the mouth it’s fresh, juicy and crisp. A fantastic aperitif wine and it’s also so Asian cuisine justice.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy! — a month ago
2015 vintage. First enjoyed at the source! We stayed at the Castello Vicchiomaggio in June of 2018 and was served this superb wine during the special 5 course meal at the Castle. Had to ship some home! Opened one of the bottles tonight to enjoy with some linguini and clams. Just as smooth and enjoyable as in Tuscany! Earthy and dry. Just know the remaining bottles are going to blow us away in 3 to 5 years. This is a wine with a ton of cellar potential. Going to order some more to put away for a long time. Will always think of our Italy trip when we drink this! — 4 years ago
Besides the killer artwork, and the castle winery, the wine itself is a light but easy to drink can — 2 years ago
‘Cool castle bro’ label. Deep red color. Smells like old books, dry cherries and unsweetened chocolate nibs. Flavors are strange with gun-smoke tea, fancy tonic water and berry pies. Plenty dry. Chewy. Complex. Winey, like a Winesap apple. It’s not raisin-y. It could have more depth and bite perhaps, but overall it’s very enjoyable. — 2 years ago
