  • Marc Plouzeau Sauvignon Touraine 2019

    White wine. Touraine, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. From chalky, flinty soils along the Cher, Marc Plouzeau has crafted a 2018 Touraine Sauvignon redolent of white peach and passion fruit; lean and quite dense; but finishing with refreshing juiciness, a saline tang, and hints of cherry pit and pistachio. Enjoy it over the next 12-15 months.

  • Marc Plouzeau Rive Gauche Chinon Rosé 2019
    $15.00
    Rosé wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. 100% Cabernet Franc. Organic. "The 2019 Chinon Rosé from Domaine de la Bonnelière is a nicely vibrant salmon color and offers up a bright and gently vinous bouquet of cherries, orange peel, gentle smokiness, dried flowers and a nice base of soil tones that I suspect are from sandier soils. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and quite complex, with excellent depth at the core, bright acids and lovely balance and grip on the long and eminently satisfying finish. This is first class Chinon Rosé! 2020-2025." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Marc Plouzeau Château de La Bonnelière Chinon 'Les Cornuelles' 2018
    $22.00

    Red wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Cabernet Franc. Very solid, reveling a nicely roasted wood note. Les Cornuelles has a very clear and fruity sour cherry aroma with discreet tar aromas; it indicates a lovey purity and elegance. The wine is medium-bodied, racy and silky textured, a really fresh, yet just ripe Cabernet Franc with sour cherry, black berry and floral flavors in the finish.

  • Marc Plouzeau Chateau de La Bonneliere Touraine Cepage Sauvignon "les Devants" 2019
    $16.00
    White wine. Touraine, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Sauvignon Blanc. "Marc Plouzeau’s 2019 Touraine Sauvignon Blanc is made from a parcel of thirty-plus year-old vines. The wine is very high quality, with the nose jumping from the glass in a vibrant blend of gooseberry, lime, cut grass, chalky soil tones and a topnote of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, racy and rock solid at the core, with great cut and grip, laser- like focus and superb mineral drive on the very long, complex and snappy finish. This is the finest and most serious example of Touraine Sauvignon Blanc I have ever tasted, which is no doubt a testament to the superb quality of both the 2019 vintage and the serious skills in the cellar of Monsieur Plouzeau! Think of this as the quality equivalent of a top flight bottling of Chavignol Sancerre in a great vintage, which will be even better with a year or two of bottle age! 2020- 2030+." — 93 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Marc Plouzeau Chateau de la Bonneliere Le Clos de la Bonneliere 2018
    $20.00
    Red wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. Organic. 100% Cabernet Franc. "The Chinon “le Clos de la Bonnelière” hails from a three hectare parcel of thirty-five year-old vines that surround the Château de la Bonnelière and which are planted on clay and limestone soils. The wine is raised in demi-muids for twelve months prior to bottling and the 2018 version offers up a beautiful bouquet of cassis, sweet dark berries, a touch of tree bark, cigar smoke, juniper berries and a lovely base of soil tones. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and intensely flavored, with a very fine core of fruit, ripe, moderate tannins and a long, tangy and beautifully vibrant, complex finish. I would guess that in most vintages, this is a lovely drink right out of the blocks, but the depth and structure of the 2018 vintage has given this a lovely structural chassis to age on, and as tasty as this wine is today, it is going to be even better with five or ten years’ worth of bottle age." — 92+ Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)

  • Marc Plouzeau Chateau de la Bonneliere Rive Gauche 2019
    $16.00
    Red wine. Chinon, Loire Valley, France. 100% Cabernet Franc. Organic. "Marc Plouzeau’s Rive Gauche bottling of Chinon is one of his more forward cuvées, as the vineyard is planted on a base of gravel and pebbles along the river. The vines are thirty years of age and, like all of Monsieur Plouzeau’s wines, fermented with indigenous yeasts. The 2019 comes in nicely ripe at 13.5 percent octane and offers up a deep and classic bouquet of black cherries, dark berries, cigar smoke, gravel, a bit of menthol, tree bark and a topnote of juniper berries. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and has excellent depth at the core, with fine soil signature, moderate tannins and a long, complex and very well-balanced finish. This is approachable now, but with the exceptional quality of the 2019 central Loire red wine vintage, this has the depth and stuffing to also age gracefully for the next couple of decades. It’s fine quality augurs very well for some of the other cuvées of Chinon here yet to be released! 2020-2040." — 91 Points, John Gilman, View From The Cellar #87 (May/June 2020)
