The Wine

The cuvée is made in the méthode traditionnelle, with primary fermentation in 70% stainless steel and 30% in 400 litre used barrels, followed by four years maturation on fine lees in bottle. The wine is then disgorged and re-corked with zero dosage. The result is a very fine, crisp and beautifully composed sparkling Vouvray. Medium-bodied with a lovely fine mousse, it drinks very well as an aperitif, but also has the intensity of classic Chenin Blanc characters to accompany a wide range of dishes throughout the meal.

On the 2016:  ”There are just 1 hectare of 35-year old vines at Clos Saint Mathurin, planted on clay and limestone soils. The fruit is picked by hand, and after pressing the first fermentation is in 70% stainless steel and 30% barrel, the second fermentation is in bottle, followed by 36 months sur lattes. This has a pale straw-gold hue in the glass and a firm bead. There follows a convincing nose, rich in dried citrus fruit, sweetly polished, with white currant and white pepper. It is smouldering and smoky, modern and reductive. Fruit rich on the palate, and lean in terms of texture, this has great acidity and a fresh mousse. Bright, sinewy and peppery, with a youthful and full stance, this is hugely impressive. 93/100 Chris Kissack,

About the Wine Maker

The domaine of Marc Bredif is one of the most famous names in the Loire, renowned for the longevity and quality of his Vouray. Established in 1893 under the name of Chateau les Roches it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Bredif took over from his uncle, that the name was changed to mark the change of ownership. The ethereal Chenin Blanc from Marc Bredif remains a benchmark for the region; delicious, nervy and vividly sketched when young it morphs into an infinitely complex wine with age taking on characters of dried honey, lanolin and valvados, still with that ceramic-like sheen of minerally acidity.

Marc Bredif is a highly respected producer in Vouvray, which shares ownership with the de Ladoucette winery in Pouilly Fume. We recently showed four Vouvrays from Marc Bredif during the Working with Wine seminars and they were a revelation. They all showed great purity of expression, with prodigious ageing potential, and they are an excellent example of what Chenin Blanc can achieve. Complex notes of flowers, quince, lanolin, apples, and citrus are all integrated in wines that have refreshing acidity which aids their slow evolution. - Negociants
