2018 François Blanchard A Table14166
WINEMAKER: François Blanchard
REGION: Loire Valley, FR
VARIETAL: Sauvignon Blanc
"Wines like this don’t come along very often. In 2018, Francois Blanchard made just a very small fraction of his usual production, due to extremely challenging weather. The resulting yields, desperately small, we’re incredibly concentrated and this macerated sauvignon will surely evolve well over 4-5 decades. From Francois’ beloved Le Grande Cleré vineyard, planted by his grandfather, this deeply layered wine is now revealing just how much concentration and information is actually contained in every bottle. Give this a decant and allow it to really open up." - Campbell Burton
Once a professional jazz musician, now farmer-winemaker-brewer extraordinaire François Blanchard continues to impress. This is his open-fermented farmhouse ale made from cereals grown at his farm. Wild and full of energy.
