  • TASTING NOTE: The 2021 is archetypal Guiberteau; a fleshy, precise, steely Chenin that is all energy. Expect layers of pulpy white and yellow orchard fruits woven with wet rock scents before the sparks fly on a fleshy palate sliced by electric acidity and mouth-watering, citrussy length. The force is strong with this one.
  • ABOUT THE WINE: 100% Chenin Blanc, grown on the calcareous soils in and around Brézé, more precisely, from younger vines in Clos de Guichaux and Clos des Carmes, as well as some old vines from the Bas de Pentes terroir of Brézé. Then there is a splash of Les Chapaudaises from Bizay. As any Saumurois will tell you, these terroirs are some of the crown jewels of Saumur (particularly the Clos des Carmes, which sits on the chalky mother rock of the Brézé hill, just below the Château de Brézé). The vine plantings range from 1935-2012, so there’s plenty of old-vine stuffing in this cuvée. With all this in mind, perhaps the quality of this wine shouldn’t come as a surprise. All Guiberteau’s whites are whole-bunch pressed and fermented with indigenous yeasts with no additions or subtractions. Historically this wine has been vinified entirely in tank, although more recent vintages have been partly aged in tronconique oak to broaden the textural range and mitigate reduction. 
  • ABOUT THE PRODUCER: Riding the crest of a new wave, Romain Guiberteau has emerged as one of Saumur’s brightest talents. Much like Stéphane Moreau in Chablis, Guiberteau gave up a promising career outside the realm of wine to return to his family’s vineyards where he was fortunate to inherit a patrimony of top-notch, old-vine holdings spread across the communes of Montreuil-Bellay, Épieds and some wonderful parcels in Saumur’s de facto grand cru of Brézé including the historic Clos des Carmes. Guiberteau was mentored by local legend Nady Foucault of Clos Rougeard fame and has been equally inspired by Thierry Germain of Domaine des Roches Neuves. He is also a very good friend of Benjamin Dagueneau, another producer that has influenced his work. The inspiration provided by these great growers, plus the sheer quality of Guiberteau’s brilliant sites, is reflected in his penetrating, intense whites and reds. The whites are some of the most refined and snowflake-pure renditions of Chenin Blanc that we have tasted while the reds take Cabernet Franc to a rare level of elegance and texture. In the field, Guiberteau practices the type of ‘living soil’ viticulture that we have come to expect from France’s finest growers – no pesticides, no herbicides, no chemicals of any sort. Hand-harvesting is of course the norm here. This minimalist approach is carried through to the winemaking, with no yeast (or other additions) and no fining or filtration.
