Loire Valley 2005 at Ten Years

In the Winedoctor annual tasting calendar, there are certain regular fixtures. There are the Bordeaux primeurs, of course, the week in April when Winedoctor readership (and new subscriptions) usually hits its peak. Then there is the review of the most recently bottled Bordeaux vintage, which this year will be Bordeaux 2013.........
Read on in my Loire Valley 2005 at Ten Years tasting report. In this four-part report, looking at more than forty wines from this superb vintage, I feature wines from Jo Landron, Château Pierre-Bise, Clos Rougeard, Bernard Baudry, François Cazin, Philippe Alliet, Richard Leroy, Mark Angeli and more. I begin today with my introduction and a report on 17 white wines. Later in the week, red, demi-sec & moelleux wines. (24/11/15)
