Thank you very much for this excellent report!
I would not have written better ...

Thanks a lot for this Great article about Mikael Bouges. He has this great personality that you could find back in his wines.

A must try and follow from the new generation of the Loire Valley "Vigneron".

My husband and I bought a bottle of La Bavarde. (It is written on a label that looks like an old open book.) Elie & Mikaël Bouges Edition 2000. On the back it says: Merci à Bernadette, Simone, Lucette, Josette, Emmanuele, Gaëlle, Gêrard & Jacky.
Appellation contrôlée
Later says: St Julien de Chédon (41)
Can you tell me what kind of wine this is and if it is still good to drink. My husband was killed in 2008 in Iraq and we never got to enjoy the bottle together. I just found it today. Thank you.



This cuvée is not easy to find, it seems. This is apparently a Sauvignon (a white from the Loire valley), certainly from a selected terroir with minerality. Must be still good to drink, considering your cellaring conditions were fine (not too hot in summer and better in the dark).
Best regards, Mona
