Comments :

"Très belle approche du chinon dans ce rouge que nous avons goûté en échantillons. A suivre!"

Bettane Desseauve 2013 - Note : 14,5/20

 

"Un vin droit et précis, porté par un jus vigoureux et expressif, des tanins friands et délicats. Très bel équilibre et capacité de vieillissement pour cette matière équilibrée"

Guide RVF 2013 - Note 15,5/20

 

"Soft, smooth and fruity wine from the Clos de la Cure, a vineyard once owned by the village priest of Sazilly. There is a light touch of wood aging, giving just a softening of the firm, extracted tannins. The end is all black currant fruit and fresh acidity."

Wine Enthusiast-Buyers Guide 2013 - Note 89/100

Description

The Clos de la Cure is situated on the left bank of the Vienne river in the commune of Sazilly, the vines are an average age of 35 and are grown on limestone and gravel.

 

This cuvée can be kept for an average of 5-6 years and offers a wine of character affirmed by a relatively light upbringing in oak that rounds its tannins.

 

"How gourmet! Dense substance supported by supple, unctuous tannins. Ample in the mouth with black fruits, blackcurrant, spices and cloves. Beautiful length." Jan. 2013
