A superb price for this 2010 back-vintage! From an "outstanding" year in the Loire, this 9-year-old beauty has been specially held back -- as per Bredif tradition -- to be aged deep in the ancient chalk cellars of the domaine for release at a much, much later date. With beautiful flavour definition and perfectly poised acid balance, this gently complex wine is still racy and bright. The epitomy of Loire white wine -- astonishing age and quality for this price.

Chenin Blanc

Its Origins

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."

Vintage Report 2010, 94 Outstanding, Wine Spectator

"Warm, dry growing season at both ends of the valley, though with pockets of rain around Tours. Wines should be fresher in style than the concentrated 2009s, with brighter acidity; late-harvest Chenins best since 1997"
