Domaine des Terres D’Ocre Les Cailloux IGP Loire 2021

£22.99

After travelling the southern hemisphere garnering experience in New Zealand and South Africa, Florent Barichard settled back in his homeland in 2013 on the sandy terrains of Châtel-de-Neuvre. With the support of his aunt and uncle, Valérie and Éric, he divided up his 9.5 hectares vineyard, dedicating a third of it to white grape varieties such as Trésailler and Chardonnay and the remainder to the red grapes, Gamay and Pinot Noir.  Each vintage is uniquely balanced, acidity ,sugar and alcohol agree. The wines are aged in concrete vats and oak barrels .

IGP Val de Loire is the designation for the latest addition to Florent Barichard’s wine collection, sourced from a vineyard parcel known as Les Gavroches aux Cailloux, hence its name Les Cailloux. Crafted entirely from Pinot Noir grapes, it boasts a vibrant red hue and a bouquet of freshly picked red fruits, transitioning to a subtly tangy flavor on the palate. This remarkable red wine, produced by Domaine des Terres D’Ocre, stands out as an exceptional organic, low-sulfur offering.

Joe’s Judgements

Domaine des Terres D’Ocre Les Cailloux IGP Loire is a delicious example of organic wine done well, made in the auvergne and made with minimal intervention and <40mg/l sulphites added. Fruit forward in style, with precise and linear red fruits on the palate, with hints of cassis and violets. The savoury elements show themselves with gamey dried meat hints and leather, well structured with a nice raspberry tang of acidity. Fresh but earthy at the same time, big fan of this wine and looking forward to more people discovering this!

Worth aerating as can feel a little closed in the beginning, 30 mins should be fine. Great with pork and mushroom based dishes.
