Château La Tulipe De La Garde

Holden Manz

Avant Garde Collection Chardonnay 2019

‘19 Holden Manx Barrel Fermented Chardonnay. Standout orchard fruits highlighted by peach pit/mango mid palate…not hiding behind toasty new oak. It’s still creamy & round, with just enough acidity to balance. — 19 hours ago

Le Haut De La Garde Anjou Chenin Blanc 2005

Vintage 2005 | gold colour, apricot in smell, apricot kernel bitters in taste. Fine balance but absolutely for people with acquired taste. Old Chenin Blanc that fitted excellent with Coquilles Saint Jacques, fennel and streaky bacon. At restaurant Provence in Zaltbommel. — 2 months ago

Cuvée Métis Pinot Noir Cabernet Franc 2016

My first Canadian wine and it is a doozy. Light purple with plenty of fizz to it. This is a wild, untamed wine and you get that message right from the start. The barnyard funk is immediate and deep. Earth and forest woodland is all over this with fresh blueberries and raspberries. The spice is warm and there’s a sense of pine nuts and mushrooms. Wild funky stuff.

Mostly Cabernet Franc with some Pinot Noir from Niagara, this is avant-garde stuff. You could try to write it off as natural, or Beaujolais like, but that doesn’t really cover it. It’s clear that this is the work of someone who knows what the hell they’re doing, absolutely nothing amateurish here. As wild as it is there is nice structure here, this is not at all a lazy wine. Complexity is abundant with menthol and untamed red fruit notes. Sit with this one for a while. Let it breathe, let it speak to you. You will be rewarded. Very unique.

Domaine du Clos Fremur

Le Puits de Rezé Anjou Cabernet Franc 2016

Angevine surprise based on cabernet-Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc. Original biodynamic wine, with a very reduced sulphur intake and benefiting from ageing in oak barrels. With a beautiful freshness typical of the Loire wines, it has a depth and an aromatic complexity that is all the better expressed as the wine has a few years of ageing. 2016 is a remarkable balance where cedar, musk, blackcurrant participate in a rich aromatic bouquet, alongside the notes of liquorice, or slightly canneled pepper. Somewhere between Loire and Bordelais.

Surprise Angevine à base de cabernet- Sauvignon et Cabernet Franc. Vin original, en biodynamie avec un apport en souffre très réduit et bénéficiant d’un élevage en fût de chêne. Doté d’une belle fraîcheur typique des vins de Loire, il n’en possède pas moins une profondeur et une complexité aromatique qui s’expriment d’autant mieux que le vin a quelques années de garde. 2016 est d’un équilibre remarquable où cèdre, musk, cassis participent d’un bouquet aromatique riche, aux côtés des notes de réglisse, ou poivre légèrement cannelé. Quelque part entre Loire et Bordelais.

Beaujolais-Villages Authentic

Gamay de Lantignié, the future 11th cru of Beaujolais? Judging by this bottle, there is no problem with putting this wine in comparison with a Morgon Cote-du-Py, for example. A deep and concentrated gamay, which keeps the charming freshness that gives these wines so much charm. Beautiful for its price range, and the next day it's even better!

Un gamay profond et concentré, qui garde la charmeuse fraîcheur qui donne tant de charme à ces vins. Magnifique pour sa gamme prix, et le lendemain c’est encore meilleur!

Domaine Lafarge Vial

Joie du Palais Fleurie Gamay 2018

Great, lively, concentrated gamay. Ruby colour/deep purple. Open black cherry nose. A fresh and tender mouth, with a great aromatic concentration developing aromas of rose petals, iris, undergrowth and peppery notes. A beautiful Beaujolais wine vinified in Burgundy style. Good guard potential.

Superbe gamay concentré et vif. Robe rubis/pourpre profonde. Nez ouvert cerise noirs, griotte. Bouche fraîche et tendue, avec une grande concentration aromatique développant des arômes de pétales de rose, iris, notes sous-bois et poivrée. Un vrai beau vin du Beaujolais vinifié dans le style bourguignon. Beau potentiel de garde.
