Laurence Dinocheau was on training in the place i used to work in, so we met very quickly and immediately agreed about the different commercial points.
She finally moved with her brother to their parents property and a new adventure has started!
Located on the first Coteaux du Cher, this is a 13 hectares family vineyard, in the appellation’s area AOC Touraine and AOC Touraine Chenonceaux, close to the Chateaux de la Loire, among the famous ones, Chenonceaux, Chambord and Cheverny. They are working on old varieties of wine as “L’Orbois” also called “menu Pineau” which are slowly forgotten.
My favorite: “Orbois”,2010, IGP Val de Loire, a dry and mineral wine, fine and elegant with a lovely final taste in mouth.
