Marc Bredif Vouvray 2019
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.
The domaine of Marc Brédif 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 Château les Roches it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Brédif took over from his uncle, that the name was changed to mark the change of ownership. The ethereal Chenin Blanc from Marc Brédif 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.
