Bonnes Blanches Sec, 2019 | Anjou, Loire
Region: Anjou, Loire
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Farming: Organic certified
Tasting Note: This is a beautiful wine from the unique soils of the Anjou Noir. Bonnes Blanches is traditionally sweet wine terroir for the Ogereau’s but Emmanuel makes this terrific dry version which is plumper and more forthcoming than the Vent de Spilite but with the signature energetic acidity and mineral edge. Ripe and round with notes of coconut, white peach and thyme underpinned by taut acidity and spice notes.
Background: Emmanuel Ogereau picks with zero botrytis and a lot of green fruit – the resulting wines are thrillingly intense and exciting to drink.
Serving: Cold - but not too cold! (10–12°C).
