Sanzay Saumur blanc 2018


Like other central Loire whites, this is pure Chenin blanc, made from 50 year old vines. It’s fermented in barrels (half of which are new) with regular lees stirring. We were surprised  at how much we enjoyed Coinçons — the Chenin handles the oak beautifully, supporting rather than hiding the gorgeous Chenin fruit.

The nose shows pears, white flowers, fine minerality and perfume; the mouth is dry but lush, with gorgeous fruit, excellent crispness, and tons of energy and life. Think the weight of a Condrieu, the fruit of a Vouvray, and the freshness of a fine Chablis: a perfect winter white.
