Vincent Roussely: Portes Ouvertes – 11th - 12 th April

 Vincent's father has a remarkable collection of old cars and lorries

Vincent Roussely held his annual portes ouvertes on Saturday 11th and Sunday 12th April – a chance to taste Vincent's 2014 Sauvignon Blanc and Gamay. His 2014 Le Clos Sauvignon Blanc (€7 at the domaine) is attractively easy drinking, clean and lightly grassy. Vincent's superior and later bottled cuvée of Sauvignon Blanc – Espirit du Clos – is still 2013 and has more weight, concentration and good length (€8 at the domaine)

Bottled in March the 2014 Canaille Gamay was picked in mid-October has lovely juicy fruit with a tough of spice. Vincent also has Favourite, which is a Blanc de Blancs Méthode Traditionnelle made from 100% Chardonnay from vines at Château de Menars near Blois, which used to belong to Madame de Pompadour. Toasty from 24-months sur latte and non dosé.
