Ligers 2018

Les blottières 2016

Grape variety : 100% Cabernet franc ;

Terroir : limestone gravers

The deep dark red colour with crimson highlights is brilliant and limpid. The intense and expressive nose combines smells of black fruits (blackberry and blackcurrant) to notes of jam, liquorice and spices.  The supple entry mouth offers a fleshy material, volume, balance, softness, and fruity and spicy flavours (black pepper) which coat the blended tannins, and then persists in a structural and long final. Great Bourgueil.

Les vieilles vignes 2016

Grape variety : 100% Cabernet franc ;

Terroir : chalky-clayey silica

The deep dark red colour with purple highlights is brilliant and limpid. The expressive, intense and complex nose associates black fruits smells (blackberry and blackcurrant) to notes of liquorice and spices. The supple entry mouth offers a fleshy and enveloping material, balance, wealth, and fruity and spicy flavours which coat tannins already silky, and then persists in a structural and long final. Great Bourgueil.




THE 3rd OCTOBER 2017

Shears retracted, hoods laid…

Shears retracted, hoods laid…in Ingrandes harvests has just finished.
Good volumes. Great maturities fully underpinned by acidity balances.
And, fermentations already well advanced in the chai. New season’s is assured.
 
Harvests finish and new chapter. Good promises and cascading memory-pictures.
To begin with this one, very biological : parcel of Levées, next to the waters of La Marche, on the old border of Anjou and Touraine, in the shadow of the castle of Minière.

VIEILLES VIGNES 2016 : « PURE FRUIT AND LIQUORICE. SILKY AND RARE »

For a winemaker, the distinction of a specialised magazine is always an event coupled with the pleasure of the recognition of work accomplished. For the one of La Revue du Vin de France for our « Vieilles Vignes 2016 », we are deeply mooved by this bacause this year was delicate ; a year marked (in the Bourgueillois as in other Loire Valley vineyards) by the severe freeze of late April.

Then a dry and hot summer allowed the good maturity of the escapes grapes. First days of October : in Ingrandes, from Blottières to Brunetières, our faithful and enthusiastic team of grape pickers ensured the picking – happy harvests with a gorgeous wether. Vatting without asperities, fully controlled.

Today our “Vieilles Vignes” 2016 is still in the chai, soon in the bottle : rich and concentrated wine – Bourgueil that will age well – promise of pleasure during long years. “Fleshy, ample, convincing, pure and liquorice fruit, floral and persistent” says La Revue du Vin de France. A wine, if we dared, that we would qualify of “silky and rare”. Well, let’s dare.
