Touraine 2013 - Vignoble Dinocheau

Out of stock

The opinion of the sommelier

There is a lot of freshness in that wine. I really appreciated the mineral aromas that come straight from the flints that the soil of Touraine is made of. Its aromas of fresh citrus and white fruits should definitely please you. This wine is to be enjoyed with friends around a seafood platter. I am really happy to present this wine, made with passion by Fabien and Laurence Dinocheau, brother and sister, who really love their terroir and are rising stars in the Loire valley. 

 

Terroir

The Dinocheau vineyard is located at the very heart of the Loire region, in the middle of all the Châteaux. Chambord, Chenonceau, Amboise… are certainly what attract so many tourists in the area, but they are not the only stars there. The flints on which the vines are planted are known to accumulate the heat of the sun during the day and to give it back to the grapes at night, ensuring that the sauvignon will reach a perfect maturity.

lecepage Grape variety

Sauvignon is the main grape variety for the white wines in Touraine. Widely used in other French wine regions, its success lies far across France’s borders. Indeed, this is also the main variety in New Zealand! It gives very different aromas depending on where it is planted: citrus fruits, white fruits… and even fresh herbs!

lemillesime Vintage

2013 was far from being the best vintage the Loire valley ever had. The winter was very cold and the sun would not show through the thick clouds that stayed sometimes for several weeks in a row in the sky of Touraine. The result was a late harvest, which could be a bad sign, but fortunately, the nights were pretty cool, allowing the grapes to keep all their aromas. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Seen from far away, the Dinocheau family could seem lazy. Indeed, their policy is to do the least they can on their vines. This results in a minimization of the use of herbicide to control soil erosion. «We produce wines that reflect the characteristics of our land”. Thus, thanks to the Dinocheau, it really is a piece of Touraine that you sip while drinking their delicious sauvignon!
