Arnaud Lambert 'Clos de Midi' Chenin Blanc Loire, France 2019
Regular priceSale price
Arnaud Lambert is leading a sort of revolution in the Loire Valley, the goal in mind to create organic wines specific to terroir and vineyard site. Clay over limestone is the primary soil type of St Cyr, Lambert's site in the Saumur. Wines from these soils are bolder and fuller and produce a richer style while still offering freshness and a chalky mineral backbone.
The Clos de Midi comes from one of the cooler sites on the Brézé hill. Sand and clay combine with the preeminent tuffeau soils of the Loire to create a chenin that shines like a laser light beam without losing the complexity that derives from great chenin. Citrus, white flowers and stone fruit. Delicious with risotto, sushi and all dat holiday cheer.
