The 2018 vintage in the Loire is being hailed as the vintage of a lifetime. It has put a big smile on the faces of winemakers and growers alike – having rewarded both in outstanding quality and reasonable quantity. Noël Bougrier, at his family estate, was certainly delighted, and the Chenin Blanc for this wine is outstanding. The grapes were taken from around the village of Saint Georges sur Cher, the Cher being a small tributary of the Loire. Lovely ripeness and intensity of candied citrus fruit, with a creamy roundness from a few months’ lees ageing. This wine is a joy to drink on its own and, golden hued, it’s a real glass of sunshine. It’ll make a fine match too with creamy chicken, pan-fried salmon or lightly spiced noodle stir-fry.
