In the next issue of the Guide Hachette, due September 5th, our Clos Badon 2009 was highlighted with a special mention. Unfortunately, we’re sold-out (except for a few magnums I kept for our meals).
The 2009 vintage has produced incredible wines, sexy, pleasant, easy to drink, except for Bad Boy and Valandraud which need to be cellared. 2010 will be tighter, a proper vintage to be “cellared”.
After visiting our vineyards of whites at Valandraud, we had lunch at home with Athanase Fakorellis and drank a bottle given to us by a store in Saint Emilion: Domaine de la Taille aux Loups 2010, from Montlouis Sur Loire appellation, a dry Chenin, really delicious, with ripe fruit, pur aromas, floral, hard to top this well vinified Chenin.
