Classic Chenin Blanc – delicious and ageworthy

In stock


Marc Brédif Vouvray is easily our biggest selling Chenin Blanc. The 2017 continues the style we know and adore. With awesome acidity balancing a touch of sweetness it feels dry but not bone dry, and is a wine that is well suited to all manner of foods. It sings with seafood, is perfect with pork and swings with sweet and sour or many Asian type dishes making is a 'must have' in the fridge at all times. It is also really delicious on its own. It drinks wonderfully 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 (2017 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".
