Loire Valley

Loire Valley

It’s impossible to quantify, but there is soulfulness—you might even say honesty—to the wines of the Loire Valley. Muscadet presents some of the best values in French wine. Compare these zingy, mineral-driven pleasers to dry Riesling or Chablis. The towns of Chinon and Bourgeuil raise Cabernet Franc to some of its highest expressions as a stand-alone variety. Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé produce some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world—deep yet brisk, steely, and chalk full of minerality. Last but certainly not least is the Chenin Blanc from areas such as Vouvray, Montlouis-sur-Loire, Quarts-de-Chaume and others, with styles ranging from bone-dry to dessert sweet—and don’t forget about the bubbles!

It’s hard to think of any French wine region being “under the radar,” but the Loire Valley comes close, and that suits its fans just fine.

    Bright ruby. Redcurrant, licorice and fresh herbs on the attractive nose. Supple, softly textured and seamless on the palate, with a touch of minerality giving shape to the black fruit and leather flavors. Harmonious cabernet franc with balanced tannins and appealing length.

    SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
    A tangy salted streak adds energy to the core of chamomile, honeysuckle and yellow apple notes, holding sway through the mouthwatering finish. A solid effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2020. 405 cases imported.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2014
    Pale golden yellow. Honeyed pear along with an herbal nuance on the nose. Supple on the palate, with sweet melon fruit balanced by subtle acidity and a rustic, slightly phenolic spine. Tobacco and pepper linger on the finish. Almost salty, this wine should benefit from further bottle aging.
