Domaine De La Haute Coudraie Anjou Blanc 2015
Nothing quirky or outrageous about this wine, just pure, sophisticated elegance. This is kind of your Audrey Hepburn of Loire Valley Chenin Blancs. Beautifully focused, golden fruit with all aspects of the wine – structure, acidity, fruit, texture, mineral and spice – in perfect harmony. Suave and sophisticated, but fun and fresh at the same time.
For centuries, French wines have set standards to inspire winemakers around the world. No other country has France’s long history of fine wine production, which has helped define wine styles around the world. How significant is France in the world of wine? The most popular international grape varieties, from Chardonnay to Merlot to Cabernet Sauvignon, are native to France. In many years France produces (and consumes!) more wine than any other country. Its production and export of fine wines is unmatched.
