Bourgueil, Touraine


Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2015

Beautiful ruby dress with depth and brilliance. On the nose and in the mouth, cabernet franc is immediately recognized: typical notes of fruits (red and black, strawberry to black cherry), floral herbaceous plants (ronces, rose, violet), and mineral (slate, graphite)... endowed with a beautiful concentration and acidity still lively, it is a cuvée today perfectly in the balance between youth and maturity with some evolved notes (truffle among others) that brings a beautiful taste relief. A bottle with enough body to attack the big meat. Nice q/p ratio.

Belle robe rubis avec de la profondeur et éclat. Au nez et en bouche, le cabernet franc se fait tout de suite reconnaître: notes typiques de fruits (rouges et noirs, de la fraise à la cerise noire), végétales herbacées florales (ronces, rose, violette), et minérales (ardoise, graphite)… doté d’une belle concentration et d’une acidité encore vive, c’est une cuvée aujourd’hui parfaitement à l’équilibre entre jeunesse et maturité avec quelques notes évoluées (truffe entre autre) qui apporte un beau relief gustatif. Une bouteille avec suffisamment de corps pour attaquer la grosse viande. Beau rapport q/p.

La Ritournelle Bourgueil Cabernet Franc Rosé

Real good. Smells like sweet tart crushed on a stone, to me. Herbaceous, crisp, and a little tangy. — a month ago

Domaine de la Butte

Le Pied de la Butte Bourgueil Cabernet Franc 2019

Food friendly classically styled cab franc. Medium bodied, medium acidity, smooth with no hard edges. Plenty of red berry fruit with secondary earth and herbaceous notes adding complexity, but not overly “green” or stemmy. — a month ago

Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2020

Pale lemon with scents of sweet citrus notes, underripe mango, pear, pineapple core and honeysuckle form the nose of this light white. The palate is round and a little heavy in feel at first, medium acidity, hints of citrus and honey lifts the wine to a medium finish with a mineral character. — 4 days ago

Goutte D'Or Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1990

Couleur presque brune, un nez incroyable, du fruit confit, une texture sirupeuse un peu, il y a encore de l’acidité pour aider à balancer un peu cette richesse extravagante, la longueur est interminable. Belle expérience d’en boire un verre ou deux. 93-94

Almost brown in colour, the nose is amazingly complex, the texture is almost like syrup, there is still some acidity to balance that richness that is almost too much, and the sugar is wow, but it is still delicious and the length never stops, great experience to drink this wine that was made in only 4 vintages.
