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."

We knew that Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil could mean complex wines, but this one is above our expectations. Made with Cabernet Franc grapes coming from specific, ideally oriented parcels, the wine is aged in oak barrels for almost 30 months - similarly to prestigious Bordeaux or Rioja wines. The result is a full-bodied wine showing a beautiful balance,...

It can be de Loire, de Bourgogne or d'Alsace... Crémant wines have a lot of fans across the world, as they often represent a good alternative to a more expensive Champagne.

Saint-Nicolas de Bourgueil is getting all the glory this week, starting with this delicious example. Cabernet Franc grapes are harvested when fully mature to make an easy to drink red wine. Packed with expressive aromas of red fruit, typical of Cabernet Franc, it is a great choice to start exploring the appellation from a one of the best organic estate in...

This is simply a delightful wine from Le Clos des Quarterons and winemaker Xavier Amirault! Elaborated from old vines of Cabernet Franc - over 50 year-old - and matured in demi-muids (500-liter barrels), it really shows how complex a great Loire Cabernet Franc can be. Try and decant it for a couple of hours if you can and let the magic come to your glass....
