CEP by CEP Anjou Blanc 2015
The wine is a clear, bright, straw colour. On the nose and palate it’s clean and aromatic, with lively citrus and lemon curd, melding with slightly richer notes of baked apple and pear. Kind of like an Aussie Riesling with a hint of euro funk on the finish, it's crisp and dry, driven by a streak of super-zingy Chenin acidity.
“This racy, pure-fruited drop was vinified in 2 to 4 year old 400-litre casks, and delivers a ripple of fresh apple, pear skin, lemon and smoky notes, reminiscent of nearby Savennières (which lies on the opposite side of the Loire river). It's tightly wound, fresh and pure and very smashable. There's also more finesse than last year's wine. Plenty of energy, refreshment and value on offer here.” Bibendum Wine Co.
