We absolutely adore this wine, which is a good substitute for white burgundy when you want something a bit different an frankly more intriguing for the price. Fabulous concentrated fruit; apples, quince, excellent texture and length. Yum. Oh yes, 2014 was a cracking vintage for Loire Chenin Blanc.


Tasting Notes

Chateau de Targé - The Chateau itself dates back to 1677 and is situated on a steep limestone embankment overlooking the Loire. The grapes that go into Les Fresnettes come from tiny parcels within four walled vineyards around the Chateau, namely the Clos Saint-Père, Clos du Moulin, Clos Saillan and Clos Vert. Since 2000, Edouard has adhered to the principles of the 'Terra Vitis' code, which is a self-regulating body that promotes sustainable agriculture without all the dogma that surrounds the bio-dynamic movement. In effect, it's organic viticulture without the sandals.


Robin's Note:

Beautiful nose, firm, flinty and mineral, roasted nuts and citrus preserve, quite mineral style; juicy and vibrant palate, fresh and nervy, almost Burgundian style, mineral with attractively built fruit and a long, lingering aftertaste, very stylish in an intense and vibrant profile. Fine floral quality, Highly concentrated, textured but firm and taut, taut acid towards the finish, lingering long finish This is a baby and really needs another 3 or 4 years to develop. Very fine quality at this price. 14%
