Great buying here for an aged wine recently released ex Chateau.
The domaine of Marc Bredif is one of the most famous names in the Loire, renowned for the longevity and quality of their Vouvray. Established in 1893 under the name of Chateau les Roches it wasn't until 1919 when Marc Bredif took over from his uncle, that the name was changed to reflect the change in ownership.
Brilliant pale straw colour with a watery hue. Nosing reveals aromas of baked apples, pears and honeysuckle followed by a distinct quince note and hints of spicy cinnamon. Possessing good richness and a textured, almost luscious like mouthfeel, the palate is generously flavoured with ripe pears and Jonathan apples laced with honeysuckle over some subtle quince and spice nuances.
