Chenin Blanc is the great white grape and wine of the Loire Valley in Central France and the star ingredient in this dry, medium bodied, super refreshing white. Chenin remains under the radar of most white wine drinkers in this part of the world, which is a shame because it is one of its most age-worthy wines on Earth, capable of evolving for decades, remaining fresh all that time, thanks to its high acidity. This is very good quality and value for money. A star of the week on all counts. - 4 Stars, Joelle Thomson, Wine Writer
The appellation laws can be strict in France, but the generic Vin de France labelling helps to give producers back a bit more control when it comes to their blends. This one, from Marcel Martin, is made up of Chenin Blanc from all over the region which allows the winemakers to pick and choose the grapes that are best for their blend, regardless of where they came from. The grapes were all fermented together at low temperatures, before being aged for a short period on their lees giving the wine a bit more depth and complexity. Typical Chenin notes of tropical fruits, citrus and peach are obvious along with a touch of sour apple on the finish. Serve chilled on its own, or with a plate of freshly caught seafood. - Wine Central Tasting Panel
A blend of grapes from several wine growing areas in the Loire Valley. A low temperature ferment to protect against oxidation and maturation on fine lees.
It is pale yellow in colour. The nose is vibrantly expressive with slight mineral and floral notes showing over a base of exotic and dry fruit aromas. The palate is fresh, full and nicely balanced exhibiting notes of exotic fruits and a mineral finish.
Perfect accompaniment to seafood of all types, raw vegetables or on its own as an aperitif.
