  • 2018 La Grange Tiphaine Côt Touraine Vieilles Vignes - France, Loire Valley, Touraine (8/1/2020)
    Impressive concentration but rather rough at this point. I would not be at all surprised if this turned into something quite nice with age but it really reminds me more of young Cahors than of young Clos Roche Blanche so it's not really what I was looking for.

Thanks for the note. I was wondering about this wine. I have at bottle of their Clef De Sol rouge incoming. Their Clef De Sol blanc (Chenin Blanc) is killer.

I haven't tried the chenin yet but I did open the Clef De Sol tonight (which was my impetus to finally post my note on the cot).
Ripe fruit isn't necessarily a flaw.

Cool note, I ordered both cuvees from Chambers. Won’t get it until cooler shopping weather.
