Dégustation des Vins de Touraine – Val de Loire

Dégustation des Vins de Touraine – Val de Loire

Mercredi, 7 Juin 1995

 

1992 Cuvée « Vieilles Vignes », Philippe Alliet, Chinon

Nez fume, frais, vif, jolie acidité et fruits expressive. Bien fait.

 

1993 Cuvée de la Roche, Domaine du Colombier, Chinon

Gorgeous expression of terroir: argilo-calcaire … damp, salty, smoky, fresh.

 

1993 Reserve Stanislas, Le Moulin a Tan, Pierre Sourdais, Chinon

Fresh, lively acidity, bright fruit … slightly brooding. Nice.

 

1990 Château de Chenonceau, AOC Touraine

Un nez du miel, de l’amande et des abricots, les tous soulignés avec un note du sel de la mer, ce que lui donne sa personnalité aussi originale. En bouche, la texture ressemble a un jus de fruit et bascule entre l’austérité et l’abandonne. Une finale longue et alcoolique du rhum blanc.

This is the wine of one of the most fairy-tale-like of the fairy-tale châteaux of the  Loire Valley. Vignobles planted in 1547 by Diane de Poitiers and later embellished by the châtelaine Catherine de Médicis.
