Chenin Blanc

Chenin Blanc is an old variety. Originally from the Loire Valley, there is evidence of cultivation going as far 845. A versatile grape variety that can be made in many different styles. The naturally high acid of the grape means is can be produced as anything, from sparkling, light and dry to rich and sweet.

The grape is overwhelmingly found in France, in particular a stretch of the Loire around the cities of Angers, Saumur and Touraine. Here you can kind find the grapes most famous appellations and Chenin in every sort of style; from intense and dry Savennieres to botrytis sweet Bonnezeaux and Quarts de Charme.

There really are a ton of great Chenin producers in this part of France (but also elsewhere!). All along the Loire we can find excellent growers producing unique and interesting wines. One of the great things about Chenin is the diversity on offer. Even when just looking at dry wines, no two Chenin Blancs are the same.

 

Common words we use to describe Chenin: apples, pear, ginger, honey, chamomile, green tea, quince, waxy.

Can be anything from lean and mineral, to ripe and juicy or insanely sweet.
