Tasting Notes
Chateau de Villeneuve sits on an escarpment overlooking the south bank of the Loire and has been owned by the Chevalier family since 1969, while most of its 25 acres of vines are planted with Cabernet Franc, they also have a parcel of Chenin Blanc grown on chalky soils from which this wines comes. Fermented in stainless steel a third is put into 600lt oak casks for extra texture before blending. This is very attractive with fresh green and red apple fruit and hints of honey and toast with chalky minerality on the long dry finish this is drinking really well.
