Tasting Notes

The winemakers at family estate Joël Taluau say that they cultivate pleasure above all else, truly care for the soil and grapes, and make wine in a natural way. Winery note: "The vintage Vieilles Vignes comes from vines aged over 35 and up to 80 years old, planted on clay-limestone soils. These are tannic wines with aromas of very ripe red fruits: depth, complexity and elegant tannins ensure a long life. They are to consume, preferably, 4 to 5 years after their bottling and will age about ten years according to your cellar."

    I tend to cook a fair amount of braised dishes this time of year as well as a standing rib roast or two, but Bordeaux seems too obvious a choice. But, I’m a huge Cabernet Franc fan. Something like the 2015 Joël Taluau Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil Vieilles Vignes fits me like a loud Christmas sweater. It’s an off-the-radar region and it has spot-on varietal character. It’s also from a great vintage so the wine has ripe black cherry fruit but also notes of crushed herbs like sage and rosemary. It’s an outstanding complement to my style of cooking.
