2013 Notre histoire, Domaine de L'Oubliée, Xavier Courant
2013 Notre histoire, Bourgueil,
Domaine de l'Oubliée, Xavier Courant
As is the case with all of Xavier Courant's wines the name comes from a fasmous French film. Notre histoire was released in 1984 and starred Alain Delon and Nathalie Baye.
The 2013 is a fine effort in a not easy vintage with attractive red fruits but quite noticeable acidity. It will surely be overshadowed by the 2014 version of Notre histoire.
2013 Notre histoire is available through H2Vin at £17 a bottle.
