Descriptions:

 

From vines planted in the 1970s, this wine is the top cuvee of this estate. Rich tannins, generous fruit and good acidity combine to give a powerful, wood-aged wine. It is still young with a burst of great fruit that needs to soften.

Dominique Piron Brouilly 2015

Descriptions:

Immediately exuberant, with a diverse array of floral notes, there’s also some white pepper and crushed cherry notes. The palate, as with all of the Piron wines, is utterly pure and focused. So much great-value drinking in this.

Brouilly [broo-EE] goes marvelously with roasted or grilled chicken, fish, burgers, or pork. Pairs nicely with Camembert & Brie cheeses.

Domaine de la Chaise Touraine Sauvignon 2018 – New Vintage

Descriptions:

Owned by the Davault family for six generations, Domaine de la Chaise is composed of 140 acres of vines located on the hillsides of Saint Georges sur Cher. Christophe Davault is the winemaker.

The juicy ripeness reflects a distinctly “New World” style –an especially rich and ripe character; the finish is long with grapefruit-y astringency. The full- flavoured nature of this wine belies the overall light body (only 12.5% ABV).

A crisp, refreshing, dry white wine. Very fragrant with pineapple, passion and grapefruit aromas. The palate is round and well balanced with a nice, delicate minerality.

Perfect on it’s own or serve with goat cheese, salads, seafood, shellfish risotto, grilled

Appelation:
Touraine, Loire Valley, France
Producer:
Domaine de la Chaise
Accolades:
88 points Gismond on Wine "The Davault family is six generations on at Domaine de la Chaise and its 57 hectares of hillsides at Saint George sur Cher. The style is fresh and ripe, almost New World, until you taste the balance and intensity of this Sauvignon that brings you back to the Loire. Global warming is bumping up the ripeness here with even sone pineapple notes mixed in with passion fruit and lemon, all supported by minerality. Goat cheese, shellfish and salads all work. Excellent value, but you will have to search for it in private wine shops or scan restaurant wine lists".
