Dinner Featuring Anjou Wines - in the Loire

03 Nov 2022

(April 26, 2022) … The opening dinner in the Loire had a walk around tasting with a few food pairings on the table, then we got into the main event … These are the wines that stood out - and some wonderful food pics as well:

Domaine Patrick Baudouin 2019 Ronceray Les Zersiles Blanc    Ronceray
There are notes of apricot and pear, with good minerality and acidity plus a nectarine finish.  (****)

Château De Suronde 2018 Création de Suronde Blanc    
Lovely aromas with mineral and wild flowers permeating; there’s also some lovely lemon notes and a dry and salty finish.  (*** ½+)

Domaine Ogereau 2020 La Martinière Blanc    
Dry with minerality, crisp apple and wet stone.  (*** ½+)

Domaine De Fonteny 2018 Bouton d'Or     
There's a funny little bitterness that cuts through the sweetness; you’ll also find mineral freshness with pear and apricot fruit.  (*** ½+)

Domaine Patrick Baudouin 2015 Les Zersiles
Silky and seductive; with honeyed-ginger, apricot/nectarine, peach pit; very well-balanced.  (*** ½+)
