The ethereal Marc Brédif Vouvray is easily our biggest selling Chenin Blanc, a certified 'classic' in the world of wine. It 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, and lanolin.

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 it a 'must have' in the fridge at all times. It is also really delicious on its own.

Decanter UK rates the 2022 Loire Vintage as one of the best on record…
"This is a very good vintage, possibly one of the best, but more time is needed to judge. Overall it is a success for both Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc with well-balanced wines having both concentration and freshness, although there are a few flabby wines lacking acidity. 5/5."

Winery notes (2022 Vintage)
"The Vouvray Chenin Blanc 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.

Marc Brédif is owned and operated by the Baron de Ladoucette. The key to any de Ladoucette wine is quality in the vineyard, the winery and the bottle. The Baron de Ladoucette is dedicated to maintaining exceptionally high standards throughout his portfolio. The wines are made in the state-of-the art winery within the landmark Château du Nozet and are considered to be some of the finest examples of their type.

Grown on the lower slopes along the Loire Valley in Vouvray and Vernou-sur-Brenne, the grapes for the Marc Brédif Vouvray enjoy northern/southern exposure. The vineyards have soils of mainly chalk clay, with some parcels having flint clay soils. The vineyards are 25-30 years old on average. The "Classic" on this label differentiates Marc Brédif's traditional Vouvray from the rest of the winery's offerings."

Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, June 2022 (2020 Vintage)
"Ripe, fruity and delicately complex with scents fo fresh red apple and quince, there’s a classic wet wool quality and light chalky soil layer and white flower honeysuckle scent folding in more complexity and plenty of charm. A silky texture touches the palate first with a core of apple and white fleshed fruits, a touch of citrus then flavours of abstract scents that reflect the bouquet. Just dry, complex, charming and delicious. Best drinking from 2025 through 2030+."

With its majestic cellars in the heart of the Touraine, Marc Brédif has been one of the most famous Vouvray and Chinon houses since 1893.

When Baron de Ladoucette acquired the estate in 1980, his conscientious leadership saw the hundred year old winery enjoy a new lease on life, while preserving its traditions. Substantial investment was made to expand their holdings to take in some of the most prized Vouvray vineyards. Today, Marc Brédif continues to produce Vouvray and Chinon wines of the finest quality, in a range of styles to suit all wine lovers (including some of the most profound and immortal expressions of Chenin Blanc).

The grapes for the Marc Brédif Chinon grow in the northern part of the Chinon area, in Savigny-en-Véron. The vineyards are principally gravelly and have mostly north / south sun exposure.

Grown on the lower slopes along the Loire Valley in Vouvray and Vernou-sur-Brenne, the grapes for the Marc Brédif Vouvray enjoy Northern/Southern exposure.

The troglodytical (cave-like) cellars of Marc Brédif are among the largest and most beautiful of the appellation. The cold and humid caves, dug deep into the hillsides, offer extraordinary wine storage conditions.

Quite simply, Marc Bredif is a landmark in the Loire, not least because of the consistency of quality across an impressive range of wines. They are particularly famous for their Grand Année releases, great vintages aged for decades in their cellars before release.
