Marc Brédif Vouvray is easily our biggest selling Chenin Blanc.
2019 was a warm vintage and that is reflected in the style with fleshy ripe fruit flavours and softer acidity than cooler years. There's a touch of sweetness but 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.
Winery notes (2019 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 Vouvray Chenin Blanc 2019 is a beautiful crystalline pale yellow. A fine nose reminiscent of well-ripe yellow fruits (peach and pear), to which are added notes of exotic fruits such as pineapple and shades of citrus. The attack is full and rich, with a lot of volume, evolving on a lemony freshness and long and lively exotic fruit finish.
