Marc Brédif Vouvray is easily our biggest selling Chenin Blanc. It is a wine absolutely suited to summer style foods and really is a 'must have' in the fridge at all times. It is dry, but not bone dry and it is incredibly versatile with food; it absolutely sings with seafood but is also simply delicious on its own. It's so good to drink now but if you can manage to leave it in your cellar it will happily sit there for many years developing further honeyed richness and complexity. So good.
Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"The domaine of Marc Bredif is one of the most famous names in the Loire, renowned for the longevity and quality of his Vouvray. Established in 1893 under the name of Chateau les Roches it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Bredif took over from his uncle, that the name was changed to mark the change of ownership. The ethereal Chenin Blanc from Marc Bredif remains a benchmark for the region; delicious, nervy and vividly sketched when young it morphs into an infinitely complex wine with age taking on characters of dried honey, lanolin and calvados, still with that ceramic-like sheen of minerally acidity.​

The wine is a brilliant pale gold. On the nose, there is a fine bouquet full aromas of white flowers and yellow fruit such as pears. One finds citrus notes such as grapefruit. The attack is gentle with a lovely vivacity where one finds agreeable notes of grapefruit on the lingering finish. It is a lovely wine, ripe and refreshing."
Jancis Robinson's Purple pages (2015 Vintage)​
"2015 in the Loire is a great vintage, with lovely ripeness with good growers everywhere and just that twist of acidity to keep things fresh. The only 'hic' is that yields are again lower than we'd like and growers need. The reds and the Chenins are a nice step up on 2014 – itself one of the best Loire vintages.​ In fact ​The Chenins are superstars."​
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2015 Vintage)
"​Golden in hue with shy aromatics of yellow fruit / yellow apple with a slight toasty nuance but there’s nothing shy about the flavour. It’s mouthfilling, toasty and creamy with bright yellow fruit acidity, touches of strudel spices and an inkling of hokey pokey on the finish that reins in the high acidity that makes these Chenin Blanc wines age almost forever. A great example."
