The opinion of the sommelier

Light and subtle, this Touraine wine has an enchanting nose that reveals notes of red fruits and noble vegetal flavours. On the palate, the wine is fresh and displays nice crisp and juicy red berries aromas. There is just enough tannin to give to the wine structure and length. 

 

Terroir

Located between Tours and Blois, the appellation benefits from the oceanic influence on its western side and the continental climate on its eastern side. The vines are planted on clay, the signature soil in Touraine, mixed with sand and flint. The soil warms up quickly which favours the ripening of the grape varieties.

lecepage Grape variety

The Touraine appellation is mainly planted with Gamay and Sauvignon, grape varieties that are characterized by their olfactory intensity. On the nose, red wines give aromas of red fruits whereas white wines gives aromas of white fruits and lemon. These grape varieties thrive on the different soil varieties of Touraine : flinty clay, sand on clay or gravel.

lemillesime Vintage

Thanks to a mild winter and a hot and dry summer, the 2015 vintage was judged a great one in Touraine. Drought helped winegrowers in keeping the grapes healthy. A rainy episode at the end of August filled the berries with juice. Eventually, the grapes harvested were ripe and juicy, with a lot of sugar and acids that later gave these nice crunchy red berries flavours in the wines. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

Created in 1921, Maison Foucher Lebrun is located next to Sancerre. It offers a wide selection of appellations from different parts of the Loire Valley. It perfectly expresses the terroirs and characteristics of the Loire appellations by offering fruity and fresh wines, the style that make Loire Valley renowned worldwide.
