Two niche finds.. by Mikaël Bouges

It was during a conversation with our neighbouring vigneronne that Gérald discovered La Pente de Chavigny.

An interesting 100% Sauvignon blanc created by Mikaël Bouges, a small organic winemaker, of 4-5 hectors, located in the Torraine

The base of this refreshing white wine is deliciously fruity, think elderflowers, and there is a beautiful finish of acidity.  A lovely wine enjoyed alone, or accompanying summer time salads, and a superb white to enjoy with spicy food… I fancy a curry now !

After sampling La Pente de Chavigny we couldn’t resist trying Mikaël’s red wine, Aigues Vives, and we weren’t disappointed !

Organically produced this silky, fresh in mouth, and well balanced rouge is 100% Côt. Smooth, elegant, with a beautiful oaky finish, and the perfect choice to accompany roast red meats.

Featuring amongst Bistrot Les Tontons 2012-2013 Autumn-Winter wine selection and available for purchase
