June 2009: Seen on

Susan Sterling, a passionate lover of wines, came on June 4th by bicycle and wrote about us in her wineblog, once back home in Ontario:
"After the Maison des Vins, I needed to get going, but not before I made one final stop in the tiny village of Parnay. There I was treated to a sampling of wines from Ch. de Targé. This winery is nearly bio-dynamic, and currently does not sell any of its wines in Ontario. This is a shame, because absolutely everything I tried was fantastic. The wine that stood out the most for me was ‘Quintessence’ 2005. 100% Cabernet Franc, it was fermented in new oak casks, and rings in at 14.5% alc. Opaque plum colour, with a high intensity nose of green pepper, baked black fruit, and some game notes. On the palate it was dry, with a full body, and flavours of dark fruit, tobacco, and smoke. Long, long length. Gorgeous. If you’re going to VinExpo in a few weeks, look for the house, they will be in Hall 1."
