  • Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2017, Ch. du Coing de St. Fiacre, 12% vol, 75cl

    Muscadet Sèvre et Maine Sur Lie 2017, Ch. du Coing de St. Fiacre, 12% vol, 75cl

    LV03

    Château du Coing is located in the village of Saint Fiacre, in the Sèvre et Maine district of Muscadet.

     

    Sèvre et Maine is acknowledged to be the best district in which to grow Muscadet, or Melon de Bourgogne as the variety is also known. These two rivers moderate the cool temperatures which is important at this northerly latitude and the distinctive gneiss soils give a particularly racy, fragrant style of Muscadet. The vines are on average 65 years old.

     

    Only stainless steel was used to ferment and age this wine. However, it qualifies as Muscadet `Sur Lie` due to the six months` ageing on its fine lees after the fermentation. This adds body, richness and longevity to the pure, citrus fruit; a serious wine with firm structure and good depth results.

     

    This wine is appreciated for its young, vivid, dry and fruity side that makes it the perfect companion to seafood. A delicate, pale lemon colour with light floral aromas of jasmine, pear and lightly toasted bread. The palate is juicy with pure, citrus fruit character and a long, fine-textured finish.

  • Coteaux du Giennois 2018, Domaine de Villargeau, Central Vineyards, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    Coteaux du Giennois 2018, Domaine de Villargeau, Central Vineyards, 13.5% vol, 75cl

    LV11

    The Côte de Gien is situated just to the north of Sancerre and Pouilly-sur-Loire.

     

    In 1991, the Thibault family decided to create the “Domaine de Villargeau” on land facing south-southwest and enjoying the greatest amount of sunshine. Two brothers, Fernand and Jean-François Thibault, cleared hillsides abandoned since the phylloxera crisis of the mid nineteen century in order to plant vines. In 2000, they were joined by one of their sons, Marc, returning to the area armed with his apprenticeship and experience in viticulture and oenology.

     

    Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc the wine is fermented in temperature-controlled stainless steel and then aged on its lees, again in steel, before bottling.

     

    Dry, crisp and refreshing, the wine is a slightly lighter and softer style of Sauvignon than that produced in Sancerre and Pouilly. Excellent wine and great value.

    The Vouvray Pétillant Brut is 100% Chenin Blanc from low-yielding, 25 year old vines. The grapes are hand picked, crushed in pneumatic presses and fermented in steel. A natural second fermentation then takes place in the bottle to give the wine its fizz. The significance of the term pétillant is that the pressure of CO2 in the wine is lower (3.5 bar) giving a very elegant style. The wine is aged in bottle for 18 months before disgorgement.

     

    Pale gold in appearance, the wine has very fine bubbles. The nose is clean and fresh with apple, pear and citrus fruit aromas. The palate is dry and refreshing with ripe fruit and fine balancing acidity.

    Louis and Simon Dezat, who have been running the family domaine (made famous by their father André) for more than twenty years, have now been joined by their respective sons, Arnaud and Firmin. Their wives, Sylvie and Nadine, run a very efficient office.

     

    Firmin studied in Tours and spent several months at Cuvaison Estate in California.

    The Sancerre Blanc is fermented and matured in stainless steel and it is outstanding – mouthfilling, steely and packed with gooseberries.

    Vouvray Sec “Clos de Rougemont” (single vineyard) 2018 Vigneau-Chevreau, 12.5% vol, 75cl

    LV18

    The Vigneau brothers, Christophe and Stéphane, have 30 hectares of Chenin Blanc grown on prime Vouvray vineyards spread over a variety of sites.

     

    They also control the “Clos de Rougemont” vineyard that is part of the historic Abbey of Marmoutier. At its height, the Abbey was one of the grandest churches in Europe  and played host to Popes and Kings. However the Abbey and its vineyard fell into disrepair following the French Revolution and the scourge of phylloxera in the 19th century. In the early 1990s, Vigneau-Chevreau was awarded the rights to the vineyard for a 50 year period in return for restoring it to its original condition.

     

    The vineyard was replanted with carefully selected vines from their best vineyards and today the results are there for all to see.

     

    “Clos de Rougemont” has great  depth of flavour, and a delicious long dry finish. It is planted on pure limestone soil and vinified in barrel with a tiny proportion of new oak. A really great Vouvray!

    Pouilly-Fumé 2017, Sebastien Treuillet, 13% vol, 75cl

    LV05

    This is a lovely domaine, but not one that can boast a history of multiple generations of winemakers. From a cereal farming family, Sebastien Treuillet created Domaine Treuillet in 1991 and today has just over 4ha of Sauvignon Blanc vines grown on a mixture of different soils.

     

    His Pouilly-Fumé is textbook. Very pale in appearance the nose has intense notes of citrus and white fruit aromas that follow on to the palate that is full of lovely minerality and fresh acidity. The wines are vinified and aged in stainless steel to emphasise its vibrancy and floral chareacter.
