Anjou Blanc "Les Quarterons" 2016 - Clos des Quarterons


Let's be straight here: We LOVE Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley - they always have something so special. Produced in very small quantity, this cuvée is "the estate's most personal wine", according to the winemaker. Matured in oak barrels for 12 months to bring an exceptional roundness, it exhibits superb notes of citrus, peach and buttercup. Unfortunately the production is so tiny that we have been able to get hold of a few cases - first comes first served!

89/100 "White wine is rare among producers in Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil who normally concentrate on red wines. However, this wood-aged wine from a parcel that is better suited to Chenin Blanc, has a fine texture, crisp apples even a touch of honey. It should age a little longer, so drink from 2018."
