Tasting Notes

L'Huisserie is a clay-flint vineyard on Chinon's slopes. The 2020 was tasted as a tank sample. It is a fluid, flowing style that conveys a sense of ease, as it flows across the palate. It is elegant and appetising with black fruits and a light piquancy. Finishes with cedar notes, licorice and fruit cake spices. This is certainly a high quality and ripe, well made style. The abundant tannins are a triumph, coating the mouth with reassuring gourmandise. This doesn't stay still, it has lovely line and direction.
