Claude Lafond, Le Clos du Château, Valençay, Loire,France 2012
17.5pts/20 (91/100pts)
Valençay only received AC status in 2004 and is not even 150ha in size. A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Chardonnay, this is a bright and breezy wine with wet stone, cut grass and light, peachy aromas. Those stone-fruit notes are even more prominent on the palate, which has lovely weight and length.
