2019 Domaine Belargus - Anjou Noir (1.5 L - Magnum)Loire, France
|Label Name||:||Anjou Noir|
|Capacity||:||1.5 L - Magnum|
|Rating||:||RP93 - Robert Parker Wine Advocate||Tasting Note||:||Produced for the first time, the straw-yellow 2019 Anjou Noir blends different south- and north-facing schist vineyards in Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay and opens with a finely intense, even complex, pure and coolish schist bouquet with ripe and concentrated lemon and stone fruit aromas. Aged on the lees for a year, the 2019 also has white floral aromas and a serious terroir expression. The stony notes become even more intense and pure with more aeration, and I absolutely like that. Lush and round yet very elegant on the palate, with dense fruit, a fine acidity/tannin structure and a long and aromatic finish, this is a full-bodied, concentrated and perhaps more textured yet also more tannic dry Chenin compared to the, for now, lovely puristic and fresh 2020 successor. This is a serious terroir wine that I would cellar for a few years and serve for many years. 14% alcohol. Tasted in June 2021. - Stephan Reinhardt|
