International press review

French press review


In the purest “Loire” spirit, Jérôme Choblet is an audacious “ligérien” which produces very good level Côtes de grandlieu. The most flowing wines take part of “Pleasures” collection and the selections of plots, in the “Terroirs” collection, show more complexity.

Muscadet Côtes de Grandieu sur lie Château de la Pierre 2012 : 15/20
Beautiful harmony in this wine getting a subtle tension with a beautiful salty final.
Muscadet Côtes de Grandieu sur lie Classic 2012 : 13/20
Marks of lime and smoked, frank and flowing mouth, we drink this wine with some salmon rillette.
Muscadet Côtes de Grandieu sur lie L’eXpressionnel 2005 : 16/20
Pineapple and mango mix on the nose, the mouth has fullness and a nice iodized final.

13 to 14,5/20 : good wine, well done, representative of its origin
15 to 16/20 : very good wine, highly representative of its origin

VITI - de la vigne au vin (May-June 2013)

Nice article (only in French!) in the recent "VITI - de la vigne au vin" magazine about the export in Domaine des Herbauges, a business strategy that allows to find remunerative prices... Good reading !

THE WINE GANG (Great-Britain)

88/100 - 100% Melon de Bourgogne from a single vineyard of 50- to 70-year-old vines, fermented in glass-lined underground vats. Delightful (vaguely medicinal) touch of clove and anise, then lemon and herby-fresh aromas. The palate has flowing, running-stream freshness, with delightful apple and lemon fruit and just touch of creaminess to the texture in the fine, long finish. Exquisite.


CLOS DE LA FINE Muscadet-Côtes de Grandlieu Sur Lie 2012 : 88
Fresh white peach, lemon zest and fennel seed notes lead to a bracing finish. Drink now.
A light, crisp style, with yellow apple skin and light pear fruit notes. Quick finish. Drink now.

85 - 89: Very Good – a wine with special qualities 80 - 84: Good – a solid, well-made wine
