Last year, while visiting the Bordeaux and the Loire Valley, AFMSP members tasted and visited Domaine Bourillon Dorléans. Now we invite you to enjoy their wines in Minnesota!

Frederic Bourillon’s family have been making wine at Rochecorbon for many generations. Documents show the estate was founded in 1875, but it was in the 1921 that Frédéric’s great grandfather, Gaston, started to organize the estate as it is today. Since taking over, Frédéric has been a leading figure among younger Vouvray producers, developing earlier-drinking, more user-friendly styles of Vouvray, while maintaining the tradition of laying down great botrytis sweet wines in the best years. Fred is an amusing and original wine marketer, as well as a patron of the fine art of tufa cellar sculpture…as a visit to his wonderful 15 century cellars will testify.

Wines include:

  • Vouvray, Bourillon-Dorleans, Vielles-Vignes, La Coulée d’Argent, Sec, 2015

Light, bright gold. Racy, mineral-driven aromas of quince, lime and jasmine, with a strong undercurrent of talc. Firm and focused but not hard, offering tangy citrus and orchard fruit flavors and a touch of candied flowers. Finishes with very good sappy persistence and an echo of bitter quinine. -Josh Raynolds

 

  • Vouvray, Bourillon-Dorleans, La Bourdonnerie, Demi-Sec, 2014

Light, bright yellow. Fresh pear and nectarine aromas are complicated by dusty mineral and quinine qualities, with a touch of beeswax gaining power with air. Bitter pear skin and citrus pith flavors are complemented by a sweeter, deeper melon note and pick up a touch of anise on the back half. Already shows very good complexity but the zesty base of minerality suggests that this will reward patience. -Josh Raynolds

 

  • Vouvray, Bourillon-Dorleans, Helene Dorleans, Sparkling Brut, NV

 

Available at $22/bottle or $20/bottle when purchasing a 12 bottle case

Since they first got together in 1982, in a tiny village near Angiers, France, Lo’Jo have been one of the most eclectic, eccentric and mesmerizing musical collectives that Europe has ever produced. Like their British contemporaries, The Mekons, Lo’Jo are globetrotting legends and musical shapeshifters who’ve gone through many incarnations, and they’ve incorporated theater and visual art into their music since the beginning.
