The 2018 Saumur Blanc Argile from Château du Hureau is really a lovely wine, with the ripeness of the vintage playing off lovely against an excellent blade of terroir. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a bright and quite wide open (particularly for young chenin blanc!) blend of sweet grapefruit, quince, a touch of orange peel, lovely, chalky soil tones and a delicate floral topnote of white flowers. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with good framing acids, very good focus and grip and a long, zesty finish. This is really good Saumur blanc! 2019-2030+.
