Number of wine boxes of 3 bottles to add to basket:

The opinion of the sommelier

An artist wine by the well-known and well gifted Jean-Marc Biet ! The nose is subtle, displays delicate flowers aromas and opens to small red berries flavours. In the mouth, a salty taste gives soul to the wine. This is a superb Loire Valley wine, fresh and elegant, of great finesse, charming and easy to drink in all circumstances. A single bottle might not be enough. 

 

Terroir

Located between Tours and Bourges, Jean-Marc Biet’s estate is located on the south and south-east slopes of the Cher River. A well exposed and balances terroir thanks to its soil composed of clay that offers freshness to the grapes, and limestone that brings subtlety and minerality.

lecepage Grape variety

This wine was elaborated with gamay, a variety that comes from Beaujolais, in southern Burgundy, where it is still the main variety grown. Gamay is amazing, it offers a nice olfactory intensity with notes of red fruits which can be surprising considered that the flesh of this grape is white !

lemillesime Vintage

The year 2016 was marked by very difficult weather conditions in Touraine. Rain, frost, hail came one after another in spring which explains why winegrowers harvested only half the usual and sometimes nothing at all. However, the quality is fine since after the bad weather came a scorching summer and a sunny September that allowed the "surviving grapes" to fully catch up their maturity. 

lerecoltant A winemaker, a family

The Biet family estate is one of the leading estates in the large Touraine appellation. The family’s know-how and passion has been transmitted on four generations and evolves with the desire to produce wines that respect the terroir and people who live there. Nowadays, Jean-Marc and his daughter Julie continue to write the history of the estate by vinifying wines that remind their personalities : pleasant, aromatic and with character.
