La Folle Berthe, 2023 Update
Careering around a large tasting of organic and biodynamic wines from Saumur a year or two ago, some of the most striking wines – both in terms of their labels, and the quality of the liquid within the bottle – were those from David Foubert, of Folle Berthe. One Chenin Blanc in particular, from a parcel within the Fontenelles vineyard which David acquired from Philippe Gourdon of La Tour Grise, was noteworthy.
I have met up with David a couple of times since that first encounter, allowing me to refresh my opinion of the domaine and its wines, resulting first in this profile, and also in this update from a small tasting with David last year. In this brief report I present another small handful of La Folle Berthe tasting notes from a more recent encounter. I check out the most recent vintage of Folles Bulles, his pure Pineau d’Aunis pét nat cuvée, as well as the latest releases in both red and white.Please log in to continue reading:
