Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc 2016 75cl 12.5% ABV
Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc, Loire Valley, France
Originally from Bordeaux, Thibaud spent time working at Chateau Olivier, before honing his skills at Philippe Charlopin in the Cote de Nuits. Buying land in Anjou, renting one vineyard in Savennieres, he built his reputation around the world with a string of steely releases, and is now held up as one of the most sought-after producers in the whole of the Loire. If ever a man could be said to be doing to Anjou what Didier Dagueneau did for Sauvignon Blanc, Thibaud is that man.
A new cellar, built in 2016, adjacent to Clos de la Hutte, has given Thibaud a whole new level of precision to his winemaking. Ageing takes place in a mixture of 350, 600 and 1200lt barrels, with less and less new oak being employed across the range. The results are thrilling, age-worthy Chenin Blancs beloved by sommeliers around the world; at the last count Thibaud Boudignon wines were found in no less than 19 three Michelin restaurants in France.
Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc has an intense nose of lemon confit, wet stone and white peach. There is also a faint suggestion of honey, contrasted with bracing acidity and crunchy white peach. This truly is a thrilling example of cool climate Chenin Blanc.
Best served with oysters or white fish.
