The wine has lovely typical Pinot Noir aromas of strawberries and plums leading to vibrant flavours of dark red cherry fruits on the palate that are followed by some savoury characters on the finish.

Wine Makers

Domaine De La Renne. by Guy Leveque

Domaine De La Renne was established in 1900 by winemaker Guy Lévêque’s grandparents. Guy was originally pursuing a career in other areas but decided to return to the family vineyard in 1981.He steadily increased the estate from 2 hectares to the 66 hectares he cultivates today.

 

The two wines we have from M. Leveque represent great value, which is the real advantage of Touraine. For the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, the terroir is similar to Sancerre, where Sauvignon Blanc is much more expensive. As a result, Touraine is an appellation which has been enjoying great success in recent years.

 

His Pinot Noir is a lovely cool climate red, not a million miles away from the Burgundian style, but at a fraction of the price. Again, the combination of a dedicated winemaker and excellent natural conditions cannot be fabricated, and the quality shines through.

Press Reviews

"Light with juicy dark cherry fruits and a savoury earthy touch on the finish. Good with salmon or tuna, or lighter white meats. I would fancy it with a saucisson, a thick slice of pâté and some crusty sourdough bread. Less expensive Pinot Noir from the Loire can be a bit too herbaceous at times. Taking advantage of the sunny 2015 vintage, this wines avoids any such pitfalls. Remarkable value for money under €14." John Wilson, The Irish Times

Wanted a wine to drink on its own and thought this Pinot Noir would work, its extremely light in color and taste, not much going on here for me.
