Tasting Notes

This is a special bottling in magnum for the ‘7eme Paulée Vin de Pays de Loire , 13 mars 1989’. They were commissioned in a special bottle by George Jalleret of the hotel-restaurant Grand Monarque in Chartres . This old relais de poste has been featured in the Michelin Guide since 1900. The analysis here suggests that it could have been labelled as a 1ere trie. Polished appearance. Still pale with a lovely clean nose. This is more passillerage than botrytis. Very delicate and elegant on entry. Not very rich, but has a lovely balance and very fresh acidity. More aperitif than dessert. This is a classic old fashioned moëlleux. According to Noel, this was a very small vintage. (07/06)
