Terra Vita vinum (one star) "The 2019, the first vintage since the recovery, retains the precision that we know, while offering a slightly freer fruit. The addition of half-muid and the reduction of sulphur doses seem to be bearing their first fruits. Colourful label, a white maceration and a solera arrive...
The Wines in the spotlight:
The cheerful madness of the new owners is especially evident in the Rock & schiste, original orange chardonnay (white maceration), rather well balanced between tannicity and floral bouquet. A delicious wine for blue cheeses. (rated 91/100)
It will take more patience to open the Bigottière, a fine and powerfully bitter savannah, which will relax after a year in your cellar. (rated 92/100)
The rhyolite plot of Rogeries asserts itself with more smoky refinement and depth. A beautiful white identity for keeping. (Coup de coeur RVF, rated 93/100)
Terre de 3 retains the classic style that we know it. Made from a blend of three terroirs (schists, rhyiolites and quartz), here is a straight and pure white whose firmness refreshes this solar vintage. (rated 90/100)
The historic Chauvigné becomes Large soif chenin quick and tonic wrapped in a slightly appetizing sweetness. (rated 88/100)
The Chant de la pierre 2019 is an exciting Gamay, whose dashing, floral fruit (partial maceration in whole bunches) offers a generous blackberry fragrance.*(rated 91/100)"
You will have to wait a year to taste *Rouge de schiste (cabernet franc and cabernet sauvignon). (rated 89/100)*
In red, Large soif is equally groumand and juicy. (rated 88/100)
