Domaine Philippe Alliet Chinon L’Huisserie 2020

R575.00 inc. VAT
"L'Huisserie is a clay-flint vineyard on Chinon's slopes. The 2020 was tasted as a tank sample. It is a fluid, flowing style that conveys a sense of ease, as it flows across the palate. It is elegant and appetising with black fruits and a light piquancy. Finishes with cedar notes, licorice and fruit cake spices. This is certainly a high quality and ripe, well made style. The abundant tannins are a triumph, coating the mouth with reassuring gourmandise. This doesn't stay still, it has lovely line and direction." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous

Domaine Philippe Alliet Chinon Vieilles Vignes 2020

R395.00 inc. VAT
"The 2020 Les Vieilles Vignes hails from a gravel-based vineyard of 50 to 80 years old vines. Matured in concrete tank over 18 months, the result is all black cherry, blackcurrant and a hint of piquancy. It's round and shimmies around your mouth. Excellent, resolved, gravelly tannins coat the palate. All in all, it's charming. A minor gripe is the touch of alcohol (14.1% alcohol) that leaves a slight warmth and partly detracts from the finish; otherwise, it is delightfully handled. The 2019 was perhaps a little better. The 2020 is a bigger, riper style. Tank sample." - Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous
