  • Out for a nice dinner for my wife's birthday last night. They didn't ... the Catherine & Pierre Breton Bourgueil (Cabernet Franc), a producer I recently heard good things about on WB and have been wanting to try. My only hesitation, is that the few wines I've had from Chinon and Bourgueil have underwhelmed me, though I've known I've been guilt... Read More

  • You have several choices. I think Pithon-Paillé is kind of a négociant firm - husband and wife and son and his wife or something like that. That's not a bad thing, and in a way, may be more instructive than a single-parcel producer if you want to learn about the region, much like Duboeuf can be instructive if you want to learn about Beaujolais.O...

  • Seems like I can source quite a few Bourgueli locally, which is a pleasant surprise. Some popular producers: Yannick Amirault, Pithon-Paille, Catherine & Pierre BretonShould be fun to investigate, and works well with another project I'm working on. Read More

  • Was out of circulation for a couple of days. Greg, your expectations are the common-sense view of Bourgueil vs. Chinon, with most people expecting the latter to be better. However, personally I've had plenty-good Bourgueil in the past.Within the next couple of days I should be able to scope out the usual-suspect sources in Tokyo to see what my o... Read More

  • Coming directly off viewing two recent posts in the 'Whatcha drinking tonight?' thread, thought it might be interesting to do a virtual tasting amongst us wide-spread all of, say, a mini-vertical of two different Bourgueil reds vs. a mini-vertical of two different Chinon reds (if each of us could handle the logistics of opening, say, eight diffe...

  • Catherine and Pierre Bréton Bourgueil Trinch! 2011

    Snoothrank:

    This wine has a textural component that is very fine grained (almost lacy) but completely round and apparent. Reminiscent of chalk although that is not entirely accurate. More black wet river thick mud..blueberries, tart berry somewhere in between strawberry, raspberry, and cranberry. Slightly lacquered saddle leather. I know Parker wants us to ... Read More
