2014 Bourgueil Rosé, Lamé Delisle Boucard 

2014 Bourgueil Rosé, Lamé Delisle Boucard

IMG_8751

2014 Bourgueil Rosé, Lamé Delisle Boucard is made from 90% Cabernet Franc and 10% Cabernet Sauvignon with a slight maceration to give it a delicate pink colour. This has the usual 2014 ripeness and balance with soft, attractively textured fruit and crisp acidity in the finish. Dangerously easy drinking – open a bottle and it empties by magic!

Perhaps not initially as heralded as 2009, 2010 is a very fine Loire vintage – not only for reds but also dry and sweet whites, which is quite an unusual combination. 

 2010Cuvée Prestige

From a very good vintage this 2010 Cuvée Prestige is simply delicious and amazing value at less than €10 from the domaine. It has a soft mouth-filling texture of black fruits balanced with a fresh finish. Wines from Lamé Delisle Boucard have a remarkable propensity to age. See here a tasting of their Bourgueils back to 1893

New wine fraud – counterfeit site: WineFraud.com. This is a new site that concentrates mainly on the counterfeiting side of wine fraud. It is headed by Maureen Downey. Will be essential for readers of Les 5 du Vin, who regularly purchase old vintages of Romanée-Conti and the like. Further details next week.
