Introducing BLT's wine of the week (No.12)

L’Angelot 2005 
AOC Chinon 
Domaine de Beauséjour 

This week Gérald has selected L’Angelot 2005 produced by Domaine de Beauséjour as his wine of the week.

L’Angelot is an elegant oaked red wine, rich in colour, smooth and silky with hints of vanilla to the palate. 

It is often considered wines from the Loire Valley are best enjoyed while young, but this interesting vintage proves otherwise.

Happy New Year !

With the arrival of our first morning delivery and upholding Bistrot Les Tontons tradition, we welcome in 2013.

Introducing BLT's Wine of the Week (No.11)

Les Valseuses
Domaine de l’Oubliée

What better way to welcome in 2013 and the reopening of Bistrot Les Tontons after the holiday closure other than with a fresh sparkling wine!

This week Gérald has selected 'Les Valseuses' as his wine of the week, a delicious dry sparkling rosé produced by Xavier Courrant, an organic winemaker and owner of Domaine de l’Oubliée.

Keeping in the spirit, that is Domaine de l’Oubliée, ‘Les Valseuses’ has been named after Bertrand Blier’s 1974 film whose three principle actors included Gérard Depardieu, Patrick Dewaere & Miou-Miou.

The cabernet franc used to create ‘Les Valseuses’ are harvested by hand and pressed to create a pretty salmon coloured sparkling wine which boasts an abundance of fine bubbles, perfect to toast 2013 to!

Happy New Year !
