CHÂTEAU TERRE FORTE

LVT  2017  wh  2017 r  Sound, can be very good, white - the 2016 Côtes du Rhône a **** wine. Entertaining reds with character, a real imprint of their own. Organic production, low use of sulphur. Pierre has worked as a winemaker in the Napa Valley, California. He returned to France and set up the estate in 2000, his first vintage 2001. 25 hectares. It has been organic from 2003, officially from 2008, and biodynamic from early 2010s. Low use of sulphur, and long, long raising in concrete vat for some of his wines - up to five or six years; the 2009 Signargues red was bottled on 7 July, 2017, for example. I find some of the wines suffer from dry tannins, the long raising not allowing freshness to sustain - the Signargues an example. Pierre's partner Nadine Autray introduced a wine that she vinified for the first time in 2016, called Côtes du Rhône Villages Un K À part red; from St Hilaire d'Ozilhan, it was a **** STGT success.
