Tasting Evening in Toulouse

 

 

Saturday the 16th of May, we realised for the second time, a testing evening for our deposit places of wines.

This evening was made in Longages, a charming village near Toulouse, where Dominique and Françoise BRETON welcome us warmly.

So, under this wonderful sun, it was just natural to start the tasting with a little glass of our White Wine Chardonnay 2008, which has very citrus flavours.

Then, we continued our festive wines with our Gamay Rosé 2008, which is also fresh and fruity.

After that, we make discovering our Chénas wines, starting with our Chénas Les Gandelins 2007, a very fruity wine, with pronounced aromas of red fruits.

Next, we proposed our other Chénas wines : Domaine Desvignes 2007 et Les Petites Pierres 2007, more structured wines, with ripe fruits aromas and subtle bunch.

The evening finished in a warmly and festive atmosphere, hoping we will have the opportunity to share these good moments with you, at our next tasting evening !
 

Tasting evening in Bagnères de Bigorre

 

Saturday the 25th of April, we launched the deposit places of our wines, by starting our tasting evenings in Bagnères de Bigorre.

At the foot of the “Pic du Midi”, at Jean-Pierre and Brigitte Guillermin’s home, this first tasting evening passed in a very festive and good mood atmosphere.

After the presentation of the Château des Jean-Loron, we proposed all our wines for testing.

We started with our White Wine Chardonnay 2008, which seduced thanks to its very citrus flavours. Then, we tasted the Gamay Rosé 2008, appreciated for its fruity aromas.

After that, we continued with our Chénas wines by starting with our Chénas Les Gandelins 2007, a wine which charmed, thanks to its very fruity aromas. Then, we proposed our Chénas Les Petites Pierres and Domaine Desvignes, which ripe fruits aromas and their long kept in mouth are closer than a Burgundy pinot. By the way, we started with wines from the 2007 vintage, to finish with the vintage 2004, which shows the nice evolution of our wines.

We also tasted our great wine from old vines : Bouquet de Chénas 2006. Its long breeding in oak barrels gives a wooded, fruity and spicy bunch, with a long and silky kept in mouth.

Then, we ended the tasting evening in a festive way, by tasting our Bubbly Wine, which seduced thanks to its light bulles.

A real success that we hope to see at our next tasting evening, Saturday the 16th of May 2009, at Toulouse !

Grape Harvesting Time 2008

The 2008 year has been marked by many weather incidents (hail, water excess), which required a lot of know-how from the winegrower, to make beautiful wines.

The harvest passed in wonderful weather conditions : no water in September and lots of sunshine. We started the grape harvesting time Monday the 15th of September 2008, to finish next Tuesday, the 23rd of September 2008.

About thirty pickers, mostly students, picked in a good mood grapes of this new vintage.

We must have selected grapes, to only take maturity berries. (Basis of a good wine)

We could already say that the 2008 vintage will be very fruity, with small red fruits dominance, like raspberry and blackcurrant, which are typical Gamay aromas.

For the palate side, wines will be very fruity and round, thanks to the presence of already flexible tannins.

A vintage to discover very soon !
