DOMAINE BOURILLON-DORLEANS

The Bourillon family have been making wine at Rochecorbon, in the Vouvray appellation of the Loire Valley, for generations. The estate was founded as far back as 1875, but it was not until 1921 that it was organised as it is today by Gaston Dorléans.

Still very much a family concern, the domaine is run by Gaston’s great grandson, Frédéric Bourillon, who has consolidated the family’s 26.5 hectares of vineyards and constructed a modern winery complex to service them. The Bourillon’s continue to make their wines using fiercely traditional winemaking principles, with the immaculate Rochecorbon vineyards sustainably managed and the Chenin Blanc fruit for their highly characteristic Vouvray wines hand harvested and matured in the medieval caves alongside the winery.

With an average vine age of 35 years, the wines are headily aromatic, deeply flavoured and lusciously textured, the sec (dry) style, in particular, showing a flintiness and minerality that is unique to the terroir of the Loire.

TAKAPUNA WINE CLUB | AROMATIC APPRECIATION EVENING

Ah Spring, that wonderful time of year where Aucklanders don't know whether to reach for the umbrella or the sunscreen, and looking outside doesn't help with the decision at all. Whether the sun is visible in the sky or not though, it is certainly getting warmer. Winter stews and heavy reds begin to be traded in for seafoods and salads, and wines of an altogether fresher and rather more blonde complexion. A perfect time then for a tasting devoted to the tragically often overlooked varieties of the white wine world. Wines that not only come in a dazzling range of styles, but that also can be so perfectly complementary to our summer Kiwi lifestyle and cuisines. We are talking, of course, about aromatics. From sparkling to sweet to dry, Canterbury to Gisborne to Argentina to Spain, at this tasting we will try them all. Eight wines, eight varieties, one night - don't miss it!
