Château de Brézé

Clos de la Rue Saumur Chenin Blanc

Amazing freshness, great acidity, no reduction, much cleaner than some other highly sought after allocated wines from the hill, everyone drools over. This may be the best representation of Brézé. I bought all of what is in Oregon. — 17 hours ago

Les Poyeux Saumur Champigny Cabernet Franc 2011

Iron, pencil shavings, wild berry, earthy spice, wet stone, great acid. Probably the best most expressive/focused cab franc I’ve ever had. Just got better and better as it opened. Thanks Doug! — 11 days ago

Not 'Breze' but so damn good. Less complex, more minerally but guiberteau all the way. Very pleasing wine. Thanks @Max Kogod kogod wine merchant — 2 days ago

Domaine Arnaud Lambert

Brézé Clos Du Midi Saumur AOC Chenin 2017

Yellow apples, peanut shells, white flowers, lime zest. Electric acidity, light-medium bodied, juicy texture, mouth watering briny slightly floral finish. Generous aromatics, acid-mineral mid palate tension, liveliness continues beyond finish. This wine seems plugged into a wall, in a good way. Excels beyond price point. — 19 days ago

Coteau des Treilles Anjou Chenin Blanc 2009

Holy shit. It doesn’t get much better than this. Powerful and rich, aged beautifully with just the right amount of nutty oxidation and a sligthly cheesy/lactic edge, all kept in check by a good amount of acidity. Super complex. — 17 days ago
