Domaine de l’Oubliée, Notre Histoire, Bourgueil, Loire, France 2013
Xavier Courant is a former wine retailer and, after training with some of the stars of the region, bought 6ha in 2009 which are in biodynamic conversion. This red is bursting with rich black fruit and spice. The tannin structure is powerful, but it has finesse and a fresh acidity.
