Description

The domaine of Marc Bredif is one of the most famous names in the Loire, renowned for the longevity and quality of his Vouray. Established in 1893 under the name of Chateau les Roches it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Bredif took over from his uncle, that the name was changed to mark the change of ownership. The ethereal Chenin Blanc from Marc Bredif remains a benchmark for the region; delicious, nervy and vividly sketched when young it morphs into an infinitely complex wine with age taking on characters of dried honey, lanolin and valvados, still with that ceramic-like sheen of minerally acidity.

Marc Bredif is a highly respected producer in Vouvray, which shares ownership with the de Ladoucette winery in Pouilly Fume. We recently showed four Vouvrays from Marc Bredif during the Working with Wine seminars and they were a revelation. They all showed great purity of expression, with prodigious ageing potential, and they are an excellent example of what Chenin Blanc can achieve. Complex notes of flowers, quince, lanolin, apples, and citrus are all integrated in wines that have refreshing acidity which aids their slow evolution. Importer Notes.
