|Passed these vineyards in Graves a few times|
|Found this old vineyard tractor in Languedoc museum|
|Lunch in a Rhone village|
|Driving through Southern Rhone vineyards|
|On the Loire. I was safely on the bank, glass in hand!|
Colour is a deep red, close to purple, with a great sheen. Red fruit dominates the intense aromas. Fruit, fresh, juicy with a lively acidity and a pronounced dry and lengthy finish. Tasted this first when I bought it two years ago and it is definitely heading in the right direction. Only trouble for me is that this was my last bottle of the Very Highly Recommended wine. By the way, du Petit Thouars wines now come under the Chinon designation.
