Senior editor James MOLESWORTH is Wine Spectator's lead taster on the wines of the Loire Valley. On June 15th Wine Spectator Special California Country Travel - LOIRE Valley - Austria Issue, James MOLESWORTH points out the outstanding quality of the Red 2005 Loire Wines, the best vintage for the Loire as a whole since 2002, while the more inconsistent 2006 will require more carefull attention to select.

Domaine GOURON from Laurent & Stephane GOURON will make it easy to you and your customers on boths vintages!

2006 Vintage:  Domaine GOURON Red Chinon is rated # 4 out of 7 wines in total (red & white) in the TOP VALUES J.MOLESWORTH's Recommeded Loire Wines, for the 2006 Cuvee Domaine : "A lean, taut style, offering a mix of dark and green olive, tobacco, cassis and grilled herb notes." 89pts with a $15 suggested retail price.

2005 Vintage : Within his article, J.MOLESWORTH's mentions : "The good news is that you can still find a range of wines from the superb 2005 harvest, which produce ripe, well-structured reds."

Domaine GOURON Red Chinon Cuvee TERROIR 2005 is still on sale... to date: Also rated WS last Nov. : "A nice core of dark currant and fig paste is layered with tangy iron, olive and cigar smoke notes. There's a hint of sweet mulled spice on the finish, which shows the well-integrated  stucture of the vintage. Drink now through 2012."  91pts Outstanding

So it is up to you to discover these two great wines and values, and keep a close eye to the GOURON brothers!!!!
