Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Guide Bettane & Desseauve des Vins de France

Wine rated (guide 2011) : 16,5/20 (Vin de référence)
Vineyard rated : 2**Stars (A reliable production but a little more constant and homogeneous than the previous one)

About this wine : L'équilibre et la fraîcheur ont été préservés, et ont permis cette bouteille étonnamment inspirée par des arômes plus bonnezeaux que quarts-de-chaume, qui évolue parfaitement.

About the vineyard : Passionné de vins, Alain Château est un bouillant avaleur de terroirs. Depuis 2005, il s’est constitué un joli patrimoine de vignobles, dans le Bordelais et dans la vallée de la Loire où il possède trois propriétés : le château de Varennes (7 hectares sur Savennières), le château de la Guimonière (19 hectares en Coteaux-du-Layon Chaume, Anjou et Cabernet d’Anjou - dont 16 hectares de chenin) et le château Bellerive, situé au cœur de l’appellation Quarts-de-Chaume, sur la rive gauche de la Loire. Les liquoreux conjuguent puissance, élégance et fraîcheur et tiennent bien leur rang dans leurs appellations respectives. Nous n’avons pas dégusté les rouges.

Wine rated : 17/20 (Remarquable)
Vineyard rated : 5*Étoiles (Production remarquable)

About the vineyard : Alain Château, industriel passionné de vin, a repris ce vignoble historique des quarts-de-chaume 2004. Il a pris comme conseiller Denis Dubourdieu, célèbre oenologue bordelais également propriétaire d'un cru classé de sauternes. Eclatante dans sa robe dorée, cette cuvée réunit en un bouquet la suavité du coing et du miel, et des arômes de fruits confits. Moelleux, frais, riche, le palais termine sur des impressions chaleureuses très agréables. A découvrir sans attendre.

Très beau vin , tout dans la finesse et l'élégance. Sa plénitude apparaît peu à peu. il s'apprécie mieux en 2017 qu'en 2015 ! En 2020 la robe a bien évolué sur une teinte dorée

Un sucré mêlé de fruits exotiques (mangue, ananas). J'en ai ouvert une par gourmandise, les autres vieilliront encore quelques années.

Décevant, cette bouteille manque de tension, un peu plat et mou. belle richesse liquoreuse toutefois.

Une extraordinaire et sublime découverte! Richesse, longueur et complexité définissent ce grand vin. Vibrant et immense... à découvrir absolument ce vin vous réconciliera avec les liquoreux!
Rating and review of M. JEAN-MARC D. Published on 03/01/2018
Vin ample et puissant, encore très jeune, mais très équilibré grâce à une belle acidité. Oxygénation indispensable. Arômes de compote de coings, pommes caramélisées. A réserver sur un foie gras escalopé, pâtes persillées, tarte tatin. Superbe !

déjà au bout de 10 ans un vrai plaisir à déguster, et sans doute encore meilleur dans quelques années, alors patience !

Très puissant, complexe et onctueux en bouche, avec des arômes qui s'enchaînent harmonieusement. Une très grande longueur. Attention, vin impérialiste : tout ce qui lui succède semble assez insipide !

The Quarts de Chaume AOC produces sweet white wines, and is probably one of the most emblematic appellation in Anjou. This AOC is considered to be one of France’s most exceptional terroirs. It was traditionally produced from the best "quarter" of the harvested grapes from the terroirs of Chaume. The appellation area is located in a small part of the commune of Rochefort-sur-Loire, ...
