One of the most beautiful Chenin Blancs we have tasted from the Loire Valley and one of the finest white wines of any kind that we have found in ages. It would be a bold shout to say that this is the 'perfect' white wine, but, what the hell, on the internet no one can hear you disagree. At some point in your life, you will have bitten into a Cox's Orange Pippin and said "that's the perfect apple" and that's how we feel about this wine. The balance is immaculate, teetering between scything acidity and natural fruit ripeness, so much so that it leaves your palate on tenterhooks. It's not oaky, but it has spent a little time in neutral oak. It's organic, but it doesn't taste as if it has been left to its own devices. It's pristine and elegantly underpinned by a cool mineral quality evoking oyster shell and quartz. Utterly delicious and its delicate flavours of quince, pink grapefruit and nectarine can be enjoyed with all sorts of dishes from freshwater fish, fruits de mer, sushi and Peruvian ceviche to roast loin of pork and roast guinea fowl. 13.3% alc. Organic. Drink now-2022
