As much a Christmas comfort as a pair of Rudolf slippers or the Muppet’s Christmas Carol on the box – there’s something absolutely ‘a point’ about a rich Loire Chenin at this time of year. Maybe it’s those lovely butterscotch and gingery spice hints. Whatever it is, it’s a winner. Chateau de Targé’s ripe and sumptuous 2015 has loads of texture and spice on the palate. It’s rich and toasty but not remotely overcooked, with plenty of mouthfilling buttery stone fruit and that signature zingy Chenin acidity. Class!

Tasting Notes

Pretty damn sexy. Gorgeous, refined chenin. Those lovely butterscotch, wet wool and faint gingery spice hints, all beautifully integrated. Loads of texture and spice on the palate. Rich and oaky but without being remotely overblown, showing plenty of mouthfilling buttery stone fruit and good zingy chenin acidity.

Press Note:

Decanter "Top Five Dry Loire Whites of 2015" - 94 points “A really fascinating nose of lime leaf, polished citrus fruit and white peach that has great elegance infused with greengage and wild flowers. There is plenty of alcohol here but with impressive, pithy substance which is set up very well for the cellar. Drink 2017-2025”
