Le K Vin de Pays de la Vienne Cabernet Sauvignon

Vintage 2010 / I drank this wine for the first time in Auberge du Bon Laboureur in Chenonceaux and was so surprised I decided to drive to the domaine next day. Visited it once more with winefriends afterwards. Frédéric Brochet is doing great work in a part of France, the #Vienne, that is not known for its wines. This 2010 from Cabernet is developing excellent. Harmonious, red bell pepper. Went very well with Cantonese beef and paksoi. A real gem for the cellar with good perspective. #loirewine — 3 months ago

Weer een vooroordeel kwijt. CF is zelfs lekker in dit geval. 🤪

Domaine Bellevue

Touraine Cabernet Franc Rosé 2017

Coppery salmon color. Poppin’ underripe strawberry aroma. Zippy strawberry and nectarine that just doesn’t quit. Despite today’s snow, Spring is on! #roseallday #cabfranc #touraine #loirewine — a year ago

Clos des Tabardieres Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2013

Vintage 2013 / #muscadetsevreetmaine with #elevéenfûtdechêne barrel ripening. I got more impressed by the wine during dinner. Pear and melon in smell, vannilla in taste. Vibrant wine, nice as aperitive and went well with Dim Sum. Excellent with courgette/tomato from the oven and chicken. Good with the camembert afterwards. Good effort. #loirewine — 5 months ago

PN 1328 Pinot Noir

Vintage 2012 - a bit difficult, this wine. Yes it has #pinotnoir characteristics, but also very severe. This #vienne IGT gives a Bordeaux association. Really... Does not become more friendly with age. Or I have to wait longer. #loirewine second day: better bouquet with nice mocca tones, taste still the same — 9 months ago

Cuvée des Ceps Centenaires Comte Leloup de Muscadet de Sèvre-et-Maine Melon de Bourgogne 2012

Vintage 2012 / very rich for a Muscadet, probably because it is made from ‘vignes centenaires’ (old vines, more than 100 years old). The smell is a mix of minerality and quince. Soft attack, fine acidity with citrus impression. Perfect balance. It is a shame that #muscadet is underrated. Beautiful #loirewine for hot days. #melondebourgogne — 6 months ago

Vouvray Demi-Sec Chenin Blanc 1990

Vintage 1990 - yellow golden colour, very vital. Beautiful smell with quince dominant, also impressions of honey, ananas, Turkish Fruit, hay, quite complex. This #cheninblanc is mouthfilling with (now at the age of 28 years) dominant bitters with a toffee-alike aftertaste. #Vouvray that delivers! Actually, I was surprised/shocked to find this bottle in the cellar corner. I do not keep my demi-sec thát long. Beautiful starter of saturdaynight diner with wild boar paté. #loirewine — a year ago
