The Domaine of Marc Bredif is one of the most famous names in the Loire, renowned for the longevity and quality of his Vouvray. Established in 1893 under the name of Château les Roches, it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Bredif took over from his uncle and the name 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 calvados, still with that ceramic-like sheen of minerally acidity.

Tasting Notes

When to drink
Enjoy now or cellar for 1-2 years
On the nose
A fine nose reminiscent of well-ripe yellow fruits (peach and pear), to which are added notes of exotic fruits such as pineapple and shades of citrus.
On the palate
The attack is full and rich, with many volumes, evolving on a lemony freshness and long a lively exotic fruit finish.
Product Notes
The grapes are hand-picked with care to avoid any bruising. They then undergo pneumatic pressing. Only the juice that runs naturally from the grapes is used, which is left to clarify for 18 to 24 hours—two months of temperature-controlled fermentation at 64°F. The wine is left to mature in vats for nine months.
