Coralie et Damien Delecheneau Trinqu'âmes 2020

Touraine, Loire, FranceOn the bank of the Loire River, La Grange Tiphaine was created at the end of the 19th century by Alfonse Delecheneau, followed by three generations: Adrien, Jackie and as of 2004, Damien, along with his wife Coralie. Their biodynamically farmed 15 hectare estate is spread across Montlouis-sur-Loire, Touraine, and Touraine-Amboise. Trinqu'âmes is their negoce label, translating as "Let's toast to our souls", and made with organic fruit from neighbours. These vineyards are located between Amboise and Oisly, in sandy silex over clay. After a native ferment, this aged 6 months in cement tanks with no bâtonnage. Bright and juicy, this stony, sleek wine streams pear skin, mirabelle plum, mandarin, lemongrass along the slender palate, with a base of buzzy stoniness, and a brisk acidity to loft. The finish lingers with white grapefruit pith and ample salinity, enticing another glass. With delicacy and potency at once, this smart Touraine is drinking beautifully now.Tasted: 13 March 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
