Domaine du Grand Bouqueteau Chinon Reserve Vieilli en Fut de Chene, Loire, France
|Availability:||In stock (8)|
The vineyard of Grand Bouqueteau really exists since 2003. Since the first vintage, the vineyard has been awarded with two Liger d' Or in Angers and a Gold medal in Paris for the 2003 vintage.
These awards are the result of several years of reflexion in order to produce high-class wines in AOC Chinon. The vineyard was created to respect four strong ideas :
- Diversity and quality of the soils
- Quality vine and roots in relation with our soil
- Good control of the vine with high training and good leafs exposition
- Separate vat for each piece of land (A lot of small vinification before blending).
Heady white-flower aromatics are joined by violets and wet slate, and precede juicy red cherry, red plum, and darker fruit notes on the palate, all of it complicated by brown spice and graphite-like minerality.
