In France now, with my mother in the Charente, on her birthday.
I will be heading back to Boulogne for a few days next week before heading back to the UK.
And yes, I will be buying more wine. Again I will stick to my new ration of 20 bottles that I have bought before and know I like, and 4 news ones to try.
I am still reviewing some of the new ones from my last trip. Not a lot of time to work on the blog this month, so just a short post reviewing a white, a Domaine de Terrebrune Anjou.
Domaine de Terrebrune is the name of the producers, and it is nice to see where they are located.
I did not know where this wine was from, but you can see that it is in the Loire valley and is a ‘Touraine’ wine. If you look at my post about Touraine wines, you will see Anjou listed as number 13. As I noted there, this is a good region for white wines. (Not always so good for reds in my opinion). So have high hopes.
Anjou refers to the region, and is sometimes called the ‘Anjou-Saumur wine region’.
- Domaine de Terrebrune
- €5.20 at Auchan
Aroma: Light, subtle and delicate, darker and more full (less citrusy) then some others, but not overpowering. More gooseberry than lemon.
Taste Quite pleasant. Not too dry, a crisp bite, but a slight sourness (that is the gooseberry).Me
According to Wikipedia and other sources, these wines are often grouped with Saumur as “Anjou-Saumur” wines. There is a wide variety of these, but most of the white wines use the chenin blanc grape, and some of the reds use cabernet franc and sometimes gamay as well. Some of the white wines can be sweeter than other Touraine wines.
Overall a nice wine, but I have had better wines from Auchan and just a bit more in price.
