This is very hard to get hold of, in fact it’s almost impossible for a merchant to list, because it’s normally all reserved for Michelin-starred restaurants, but when we got wind that a sommelier in London had hesitated and failed to confirm their order, we swooped! Romain Guiberteau is one of actually quite a few cult figures in the Loire (Foucault, Dagueneau, Boudignon, Leroy) and his wines have that wonderfully confident acidity that would cause many a producer elsewhere to panic, but he knows that great Loire wines come from perfect tension and balance and that’s exactly what you find here. A thrilling young Chenin Blanc packed with citrus and quince, which you can drink now, but it will unfurl and become richer over the next 6 to 8 years. Drink now-2028.

Press review:

Jancis Robinson on the 2016 vintage:
“Fermented in steel and matured in barrel for up to five months. Stone, white currant, very tangy and bright on the palate, rounded with a creamy note on the finish. Chalky mouthfeel. 13% alc. Drink now-2022.” 17 points
