    organic estate recognized BD

    A very good  biodynamic estate. If you are beginner  to organic wine, I think this estate  is a good start. The whites are spiritual, the reds are enjoyable and Ze bubble trap for girls.

    Les Amandiers  Vin de France lot 2009 Château la Tour Grise
    Slightly evolved dark gold colour, some say oxidised, its nose is complex, open and pure with hints of pear (eau-de-vie) and sherry. The attack is unctuous, the evolution ample and long in the mouth. The finish is sharp. The retro-olfaction is complex and long (saline, pear eau-de-vie). This meaty wine is sharp and very spiritual.

    Chenin noir  2011

    Its  color is  clear cherry ,  its  nose is cherry. This gourmet wine is semi long with fine tannins. The retro-olfaction is semi long. It is glug-glug wine, easy drinking wine  (14°)

    Saumur 2003 (Cuvée Bleue) Philippe Gourdon **

    Dark unfiltered cherry colour with hints of orange that indicate signs of age, the complex nose is clean with a scent of grape pomace. The attack is unctuous, the evolution beading and slightly rustic and rather meaty. The tannins are beginning to soften but still remain lightly on the palate. The retro-olfaction is mineral and complex. This voluptuous wine is ready to drink now.

    Ze bulle (zéro pointé) vin de france  **

    Hero in my book “le petit du dico du vin naturel”, the sparkling white wine is  rich with aromas of pear . A beautiful sparkling with low degrees (8 °). The 2011 is  thinner and less rich, but always with a taste of pear.
