Château de Brézé Saumur Clos de la Rue

52.00

For years the wines of Château de Brézé, one of the Loire’s finest properties, were treated nonchalantly by a cavalier owner who produced what by all accounts were terrible wines. In 2009 new ownership brought in the talented Yves and Arnaud Lambert from neighboring Domaine Saint-Just, and the results keep getting better and better. Here’s a chenin blanc that seems chiseled out of rock. Aromas of citrus, herbs, smoke, and stone introduce a mineral- and acid-driven wine that may need time to mellow out, but the pedigree and materials are there right now to experience in this coiled rope of a wine.
