Marc Brédif was established in the 1890s, but the Domaine can boast a history which dates back to 1550. Ancient troglodyte cellars, which contain local wines over a hundred years of age, were carved into the underlying chalk during the tenth century, among the finest and most extensive Chais in Valley Loire. Marc Brédif makes the finest and most age worthy Vouvray Chenin Blanc, wines which drink magnificently on release. "Golden straw hue. Nose of green apples and stone fruit, honeyed citrus, acacia florals, hawthorn and fig. Generously layered palate, valencia orange and ripe apple, pine nuts and fragrant orange blossom notes before a complex, long and lingering finish of honeyed citrus and pear."
What The Critics Say
Vintage Report 1990: 5 stars and Outstanding, Michael Broadbent
"Another excellent vintage for early-picked dry whites, reds and medium-sweet to sweet wines. Early but uneven flowering. Drought and scorching sun tempered by later rains. Early morning mists in October enabled superb sweet wines to be made. Firmer, less luscious than the ‘89’s."
