One of the most famous names in the Loire Valley, Marc Brédif is renowned for the quality and longevity of the Vouvray they produce.
The winery, a 100 year old cellar, is owned and operated by the Baron de Ladoucette and produces some of the finest examples of Vouvray. Very traditionally made, this is 100% Chenin blanc from 25-30 year old vines matured for nine months on lees.
This benchmark example is a classic expression of an off dry Chenin blanc - a complex, just off dry wine that has the ability to age for many decades - developing honeyed richness over time.
Chenin has a beautiful perfume, pear, citrus, spice, ginger, honey and so much more. It’s mid-weight and this vintage Grand Année from Brédif has built a lovely level of opulence as it's aged.
Texturally luscious, it is a must try for lovers of this varietal.
