Tasting Notes

From a blend of Côt and Gamay planted on clay-silex based soils. Hand-harvested and then pressed and fermented spontaneously. Aged for 18 months in old barrique and then bottled unfiltered. Julien Courtois, like his father Claude, has continued to make compelling natural wines in the heart of Sologne.

Astor's Glossary of Terms


There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
