Cuvée Tradition Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2006

Very pretty Vouvray from the cellar. Not massive and probably a little past its prime but still drinking really nicely... high tone perfume, honeyed, confectionary and granitic. A bit oxidized but this marries nicely with the bit of residual sugar, the silky texture and firm acidity of the Loire Chennin. — 12 days ago

Premiére Vendange Touraine Gamay 2018

Always very good sensations on this 100% Gamay from Loire. Natural vinification: no added sulphites, no input. No filtering either, light, fruity, juicy, fresh. A magnificent new wine that is both accessible and rich in nuances. Fresh red fruit with floral notes. Hypnothic like the fragrances of a feminine perfume — 12 days ago

Le Clos des Molières Jasnières Chenin Blanc 2017

Single-vineyard minerally chenin, a bit closed upon opening but gradually opened and revealed its treasures. Light in nose and body, apple, minerals, good acidity, white flowers. Good to revisit in a few years. — a month ago

Ad Libitum Cabernet Franc Blend

No denying the Brett here but it delivers as promised. Complex, alluring mineral driven dark fruit with a super mouthfeel... such an enjoyable texture; light, low tannin but never meek. Bravo! — 6 days ago

Brut Non Dosé Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2015

Wow. Insane QPR for this sparkling vouvray. Lots of green apple, leesy quality, super mineral and a pleasant bitterness on the tongue, racy acidity. No doubt this will continue to age beautifully. — 11 days ago
