2nd bottle, 10 months later. A lot of fruit at the opening: strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, blackcurrants. It is a virtuous blend combining generous Gamay with nuanced Pinot Noir. Compared to the first bottle, the wine becomes more supple, the acidity now being less pronounced. Almost oily, chalky mineral structure, typical of Loire wines due to grounds. It will develop favorably for a few more years.
2ème bouteille, 10 mois après. Toujours beaucoup de fruit à l’ouverture: fraise, mûres, myrtilles, cassis. C’est un assemblage vertueux associant le généreux gamay au nuancé pinot noir. Comparé à la première bouteille, le vin gagne en souplesse, l’acidité étant maintenant moins prégnante. Trame minérale crayeuse presque grasse, typique des vins de Loire. Il évoluera favorablement pendant quelques années encore. — 3 months ago

Very nice white recommended by Dawn. Rich and smooth like a Chardonnay but not oaky — 5 years ago
One of the better Cour-Cheverny wines I've tasted: a statement that says everything but also nothing. Less unpleasantly oxidative than Daridan, more interesting than de Montcy and Cazin and at much frendlier price than Henri Marionnet. For the money I think this is the best that's out there-- Golden apple skin, celery, tarragon. — 6 years ago
