WTN: Puzelat 2003 Touraine Pineau d'Aunis

by Robin Garr » Sun Aug 06, 2006 11:31 am

<table border="0" align="right" width="170"><tr><td><img src="http://www.wineloverspage.com/graphics1/puze0726.jpg" border="1" align="right"></td></tr></table>Opened one of our small stash of this wine last week for Mary's birthday (Pineau d'Aunis, inscrutably, is one of her favorite wines, and I love it too.) It's still a 2003 - surprisingly grapey for the genre - but a little time in the bottle does seem to be moving it in the direction of more typical Loire-red minerality. I think we've got one more left and will likely hang onto it for another year or so before opening.

Thierry Puzelat 2003 Touraine Pineau d'Aunis ($16.19)

Very dark garnet, black at the center. Blackcurrants and white pepper. Lean, clean currants and fragrant pepper, mouth-watering acidity and lovely Loire "rainwater over rocks." Rocks rock! U.S. importer: LDM Wines, NYC; Louis/Dressner Selections. (July 26, 2006)

<B>FOOD MATCH:</b> A stunning match with veal <i>polpette</i> served as burgers topped with Gorgonzola.

Robin,
Sounds great. I can't wait for the weather to cool so I can get some wines like this shipped in.

This one came from Chambers Street, by the way. Maybe I'm a gambler, but looking at the receipt, I see it shipped just about this time (July 27) last year. They were careful about it, though ... shipped on a Monday, with my permission, and watched the forecast and would have held off if super-hot weather had been in store.
