Chenin Blanc 

37.5cl * 12.5% ABV * Loire Valley, France 

Sometimes we forget that there's more to the Loire Valley than the familiar names of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fume and their wines made from Sauvignon Blanc. 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.

This 100% Chenin Blanc is left to mature in vats for nine months on the lees after fermentation giving it a full and rich texture. A beautiful crystalline pale yellow, with a fine nose reminiscent of well-ripe yellow fruits such as peach and pear, to which are added notes of exotic fruits such as pineapple and shades of citrus. Slightly off-dry, it has a lemony freshness and long and lively exotic fruit finish.

Aging potential of 5 to 20 years, developing more complex flavours of honey, toasted nuts, and dried fruits with time.
