October 2014: Jancis Robinson MW finishes off a Vouvray tasting with our botrytised late harvest chenin blanc, made in Limoux under the Vin de France label.

The eminent Jancis Robinson participated in a tasting of top wines from Vouvray, the heartland of chenin blanc, and published her findings in her Purple Pages.   We are honoured that our botrytised chenin blanc, « which showed extemely well despite its youth », was included in such august company  alongside those  legendary names. « Varietal, » she wrote of our sweet chenin blanc,  » with very clean honeyed flavours ».  Coming so soon after her complimentary comments on our still Limoux chenin, Dédicace, this seems to confirm that the Rives-Blanques terroir is indeed ideally suited to this grape variety.

Her recent tasting notes on our other new releases can be found here.
