Yes, 1999 vintage! A show of how balanced Marc Bredif Vouvrays are, this complex drop has been aged in Chateau until good and ready to show its very best. Every good year, large stocks are kept in bottles in the kilometres of caves carved under forty meters of rock. There, the wines are kept for many years and periodically tasted to follow their progress. The house of Bredif owns one of the largest and most interesting of these caves where there are wines from 1874. The wine has intense mineral, citrus nose. There is a touch of sweetness on the palate with an excellent concentration and good acid balance. It will happily age another 10years plus. Treat yourself. Needs a decant with rich poultry or pork belly.

Overview

Grape

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."
