2014 Chateau de Breze Saumur Blanc ‘Clos David’ 1.5L

$80

The 2014s from Arnaud Lambert are one word: Thrilling

Hints of quince, orange zest and green pear on the nose. Amazing minerality and thirst quenching acidity on the palate. This is one of those wines that continues to develop in the glass for hours on end.

Paid with any sort of white meat and lemon, herb pasta.

Coming from arguably some of the best vineyards in Saumur, Château de Brézé was once coined Chenin de Brézé. These are wines that were once poured among the royal courts of Europe. Now, they are enjoyed by many and remain a favorite to ARGAUX. In 2016 Arden and I drove from Nantes to Saumur and ended our time in the Loire Valley with Arnaud Lambert of Chateau de Brézé. Arnaud poured his outstanding line up of wines for us, but what stood out the most during our visit was how he talked about his wines. When he talks about his wines, he’s really talking about the geology of the land that makes up the Clos of Brézé. Arden asked him how he knows when to pick the grapes for harvest and he responded by telling her that every year during harvest he goes out into the vineyard and tastes the berries once, sometimes twice a day, imagining what the wine will be. Once he tastes the perfect balance of the grape in his mouth, he knows it’s time to pick. This is the wine that turned me on to Chenin Blanc. For that, I thank Arnaud Lambert.
