Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This is a cracking little savvy out of the Loire Valley, and it will get better with a bit longer in bottle. Aromas of green apples, white peach, honeysuckle florals and lemons waft out of the glass, along with an intriguing hint of seaweed. The palate is pretty much the same and medium-bodied, with poised acidity, a talcy texture, and a dry, long, slightly herbaceous and citrus finish. Tuna sashimi would be awesome with this!

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Clear, pale yellow in colour with green highlights.

Nose: Notes of citrus, white blossoms, white-fleshed fruit such as peach and pear.

Palate: Beautiful, pure, fruity attack echoing the expressions perceived on the nose. Lovely length with mineral flavours.

Food: Serve at a temperature of 9 to 11°C. This wine may be served on its own as an aperitif, or as a match for fish such as bass or turbot. It also goes well with the local crottin de Chavignol goat’s cheese.

Cellaring: 3 to 6 years.
