Domaine des Grandes Aurore Esperances Touraine 2019
In the heart of Touraine, in the village of Mesland, lays a wine estate unlike any other. Under family ownership for many years, the estate was completely redesigned and given a new name by Arnaud and Laurent Saget from the 2010 vintage. Contemporary and forward-looking, the Domaine des Grandes Espérances is currently in organic conversion. Although work on the estate is inspired by reason, pleasure is very much at its heart. The wines are generous, festive, and full of charm and promise. The aptly named Domaine des Grandes Espérances is certainly one of great expectations.
Coming from a plot of flint clays, Aurore is a 100% Chenin cuvée. Harvesting was done manually at the beginning of October. The harvest then underwent a 12-hour skin maceration in order to concentrate the aromas as much as possible. Fermentation and aging are done entirely in barrels (including 1/3 of new barrels) for 18 months. With a pale gold colour, Aurore opens with aromas of white fruit, white flowers, and coconut. The round and full mouth is supported by a very beautiful mineral tension.
