From: Loire, France
Varietal: 80% Chenin Blanc, 20% Chardonnay
Taste: Beautiful light yellow color. Notes of yellow fruit (like peach) highlighted by lemon zest and quince (think of the quince paste you can pick up from the cheesemonger) follow from aroma to the palate. Light toastiness accompanies the fruit, adding balance and richness. Good volume and persistence with great finessed bubbles.
Pairing: Soft French cheeses, baked brie, fresh mozzarella and peaches with roasted poultry. Any fresh produce with fines herbs and olive oil served with baguette and butter. Seafood/shellfish also work well here, especially lighter preparations, like slow poached fish, moules frites or moules mariniere.
In this bottle, following regional specifications, the fruit is sourced from sustainably-grown vineyards in Anjou and hand-harvested. The vineyard is located west of Brissac-Quincé and was acquired by the Brault family at the end of the 18th century, who have been running the estate since then. In 1951, they were among the first winegrowers to create the Brissac cooperative with whom they associated. Today, the family produces a wide range of Anjou AOC wines and is strongly committed to sustainable agriculture and biodiversity conservation. The wine is produced in the methode traditionelle, and aged for 12 months sur lattes (on its side on wood panels).
