Chenin Blanc

Deemed “probably the world’s most versatile grape variety” by Jancis Robinson in the Oxford Companion to Wine, Chenin Blanc can be used to create sweet, dry and demi-sec wines. It is the most planted wine in Touraine and Anjou-Saumur in the Loire Valley, as well as in South Africa, where it has around double the number of vines planted than in France. Chenin Blanc is at its best in varietal form, especially in sweet wines. However, when harvested late, the grape may have been affected by noble rot, further concentrating sugars and giving the wine a richer flavour, making it a perfect ingredient for blended sweet wines.
