Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru - Ultra - Domaine Belargus 2018 37.5cl

The domain

In 1978, the bubbly and brash Jo Pithon launched his first wine estate, Domaine Pithon, in the Anjou appellation of the Loire Valley. In 2008 he reimagined the family business to form Pithon-Paillé and now, in 2019, Jo has made the difficult decision to sell the estate to a new, yet deeply dedicated owner: Ivan Massonnat. Although he is no longer officially at the helm of the estate, Jo will remain heavily involved in decision-making, as well as in the production of some of Pithon-Paillé's most famous wines. The arrival of the young but immensely talented Adrien Moreau was the final piece of the puzzle for Domaine Belargus.

• By Stephan Reinhardt on July 8, 2021: "Quarts-de-Chaume Grand Cru Liquoreux Ultra 2018 from Belargus, dark, amber and orange in color, is a tribute to the famous Ambrosia of Jo Pithon, a Quarts-de-Chaume on -concentrated with a potential of more than 30 degrees at harvest, called "Ultra".The wine opens with an intense and ultra-concentrated bouquet; but still vinous and not too fruity, with pencil-point notes on the first nose , which slowly reveals concentrated notes of syrupy apricot and grilled bacon rind.Hugely viscous on the palate, but at the same time so fine, vital and balanced that the wine is never heavy or even sticky, it is exceptional (only one barrel was produced) This 2018 is made for eternity and is one of the most beautiful noble sweet wines I have ever tasted. Although I am so in love with the twin Les Quarts, I must admit that here comes not only an even softer Quarts-de-Chaume but also even more concentrated and fine. The aging capacity is ideal, and thanks to its balance, I see no doubt that the wine can age 100+ years. What a start for Domaine Belargus! 9% alcohol. Tasted in June 2021."
