2nd vintage of this red Pouches, from the new parcel recently acquired by Sylvain at the place called Pouches, at the exit of Montreuil-Bellay. The red Pouches comes from the lower part of the parcel up to mid-slope. Soil/subsoil: Alluvium on quaternary limestone, silty sand on the surface.

We find the signature of the estate with the silky texture and finesse so characteristic of Sylvain Dittière. The tannins are finely supported by the freshness of the juicy fruit and the depth of the matter.

The Domain The Saint John Gate

The Domaine La Porte Saint-Jean is beginning to build a solid reputation on the web, on starred tables and for export. Sylvain Dittière is the son-in-law of the late Charly Foucault (Clos Rougeard). Our first visit on July 28th 2015 allowed us to discover the "character", a winegrower of a rare dynamism and an extreme requirement. We also discovered his "breeding cave", a superb troglodyte cellar and his red and white wines: purity of the fruit picked at a good maturity, breeding of a formidable precision, draconian sorting, silky tannins, natural energy and exemplary balance, nothing less... We are on a level rarely reached in the Loire region, except at Clos Rougeard... Enjoy it again because the prices remain really reasonable in view of the exceptional quality of the nectar! A talent to be followed very closely... PORTRAIT FROM THE 2017 GUIDE OF THE REVUE DU VIN DE FRANCE "A talented thirty-year-old, Sylvain Dittière has worked for the Gaubys, Thierry Germain, Château Yvonne and Clos Rougeard, where he became involved with the Foucault family. This very serious apprenticeship naturally led him to set up in 2011 in Montreuil Bellay, in an old and very cool cellar, perfect for the long maturation that is his trademark. The original range includes a Sauvignon Blanc on clay and sandy soils, aged for 14 months in barrel, and a Chenin, La Perlée, which has spent 24 months in barrel. The two reds are very well controlled, offering exciting flavours and a remarkable frankness of expression, with a patina of great precision and rigour in their ageing. This estate is making a remarkable entry in our guide this year
