2011 Chinon "Cuvee Terroir" (Gouron, Domaine)

Domaine Gouron, Chinon "Cuvee Terroir", Loire Valley, France 2011

{sustainable} 100% Cabernet Franc

BLACK TEA, MEDIUM-BODIED, OPEN, RIPE & SUPPLE

The Gouron family has farmed their estate for five generations in the region of Chinon. The unique gravelly- sloped soils are key to the structure they get from the vines. This cuvée called "Terroir" reflects this gravel and the 50- year old vines planted there. More Pinot Noir-esque in style, the Cabernet Franc here is wide open with a knife edge balance of fruit and acidity from start to finish. Supple and ripe, the finish is pure black tea and red berry fruit. No oak in this cuvée.

Serving Suggestion: A match for seared duck breast with savory thyme and blackberry sauce; or beef tenderloin with sautéed smoked bacon and mushroom topping.

2015 Chinon Blanc "Le Croix Boissee" (Gouron, Domaine)

Domaine Gouron, Chinon Blanc "Le Croix Boissee", Loire Valley, France 2015

{organic} 100% Chenin Blanc

BAKED APPLE, FRESH PEAR AND LEMON CREAM, OPULENT

A Chinon Blanc made from Chenin Blanc! Say that five times fast. Cabernet Franc is king in Chinon, and Domaine Gouron’s typical work is no exception. Only one of their 28 hectares is devoted to Chenin Blanc. Though only a small fraction of their production (less than 200 cases made!), one taste will tell you this rare Chinon Blanc is far from an afterthought to the Gouron family. Rich and luxurious, with creaminess from French oak fermentation balanced by the sharp spear of stone that distinguishes the best Loire Chenins from the rest. Imagine if a rich Meursault had a baby with the best the Mosel has to offer.

Serving Suggestion: Rich enough to match continental classics from roast bird to richer seafood like dover sole. Has the fruit and acidity to stand up to spicier foods.
