Description

Guiberteau’s 2019 Saumur Blanc is from clay-limestone soils from lower on the hill in Brézé (older vines) and Clos des Carmes and Clos Guichaux (younger vines), all planted between the 1940s and 2012. Aged on fine lees in stainless steel tank until the spring and only lightly filtered, the 2019 exhibits a bright lemon-yellow color and a clear, pure, fresh and aromatic, intense and elegant bouquet with chalky limestone notes. Round, pure and mineral on the palate, this is a medium to full-bodied, utterly mineral and tightly structured Chenin with ripe pear flavors on the crisp and salty finish. This wine is full of energy, tension and finesse, and it's one of the finest you can get in this price range. - The Wine Advocate
