Chateau Yvonne is one of the greatest names in Saumur and the whole of the Loire valley. They have just 3 hectares of beautiful old Chenin Blanc vines which are farmed organically and biodynamically. Everything is done by hand with the aim of producing the purest expression of the fruit - hand harvesting, wild yeast fermentation, natural malolatic, slow ageing in old oak, no fining, filtration or other manipulations or additions except for a tiny drop of sulphites at bottling.
Rarely do we come across a wine with such electricity. It's so energetic it feels alive. It shows lovely red apple fruit and intense minerality. The palate is initially quite rounded and voluminous but finishes with a racy freshness. Just glorious.
