Château de Bioul
Vanessa Vaxelaire and Andy Wyckmans have opted to "tell stories" through their wines, and my goodness, they succeed. Theirs is the story of a modern couple tired of hectic city life who withdrew to the Namur countryside with their three children. The story of a dream that came true thanks to the promising land of Bioul, (pronounced Biou), preserve of the Vaxelaire family for over a century. Vanessa and Andy apply the principles of biodynamics and permaculture and are gradually establishing the identity of their vineyard, which now covers a total of 12 hectares. (read more)
Batte de la Reine
Harvested manually, the bunches of grapes are grazed and then pressed gently in a screw press. The juice undergoes cold skin maceration to enhance the structure. The fermentation temperatures are controlled to promote the aromas. The wine is matured in stainless steel tanks for four months.
Soft yellow robe.
Litchi is sensed first, before floral notes are released.
The litchi fades in the mouth, giving way to a bouquet of flavours closer to citrus fruit. Taste of the sea at the finish.
Hot goat’s cheese salad or a Thai dish.
