Saumur Chenin Blanc, Vignobles Berthier 2022
On the nose, herbal notes with lemon and honeysuckle. A medium weight palate with grapefruit, flowers and peach.
Why we love this:
Lots of people drink South African Chenin Blanc but are unaware of the quality that the Loire can provide. This wine has a long length and offers great value.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The domaine was created in the 1980s in Sancerre before it expanded with the acquisition of Domaine de Montbenoit in the Coteaux du Giennois. After travelling the world, the next generation has now returned to the family’s terroirs.
Clément, who has worked as a cellar master in the USA, is now responsible for vinification and sales at the domaine. Florian, building on his experience gained in Burgundy and New Zealand, is now in charge of the work in the vineyards.
