Jasnières, Touraine

Domaine de Bellivière (Eric Nicolas)

Les Rosiers Jasnières Chenin Blanc

Rich, dense, deeply colored and fruit-driven but not lacking for acidity and precision. Exotic golden apple, tea and honey flavors with orchard blossom aroma characteristics. Superb to drink now, but enough to zip to age several years. — 12 days ago

Clos de l'Olive Chinon Cabernet Franc 2016

Love the olive. This wine always has major Graves vibes. Sick nose of cassis, kirsch, tweed, old books, minerals and mashed violets. Palate is as expected very young but elegant, balanced and very pure. Awesome core of fruit and so juicy. Very refined. Terrific stuff. Needs 2-3 hours and 10 years but lovely to sip slowly tonight with a sirloin. Ripe but substantial tannins and just gorgeous purity. Terrific freshness. Really well made. — 11 days ago

COTE 50 Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2018

@Delectable Wine this is the côte 50. Lovely purity and vivid fruit, and a solid value at €12. Crunchy red fruits and a leafy twang on the palate lead to a gravelly finish. Smoothed out over the course of 3 days being open. 👍👌 — 12 days ago

@Daniel Maquin love the ones I’ve tried. This is this first time I’ve seen this bottling, entry level I assume. Going back for a few more today!

Cuvée du Silex Jasnières Chenin Blanc 2018

a great one. so easygoing and satisfying I get the wax and I get the papaya flicker and it’s wonderful with all kinds of food and with afternoon sunlight, which makes it look so pretty in the glass — 17 days ago

Clos du Tue-Boeuf

La Butte Touraine Gamay

Feel like I haven’t had this in ages and this one is making me regret it. A little richer than some vintages, but all that lush fruit also made it so inviting — 9 days ago

Les Argiles Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2017

Honeyed lemon peel; yellow flowers, ripe juicy Macintosh apple, less of the lanolin and hay that I’d expect from CB and more of petrol/petrichor. Delicious either way. Mouthwatering acid with a round texture. — 4 days ago

Domaine Bernard Baudry

Chinon Cabernet Franc 2018

Superb expression of Cabernet-Franc in a very natural style with little or no added sulphites. All in fruit (red). Magnificent in consistency and roundness. So greedy. To drink from the aperitif. Super price / pleasure ratio

Superbe expression du Cabernet-Franc dans un style très nature avec pas ou peu d’apport de sulphites. Tout en fruit (rouges). Magnifique de cohérence et de rondeur. Très gourmand. A boire dès l’apéro. Super rapport prix/plaisir

Drunk w homemade sourdough pizza. What the heck? Great wine and the best homemade meal possible.
Young, but shows its stripes. This will age into another classic Huet. In future, bring on the charcuterie board!
