Mixed 12 of Chateau de Targe

Prompted by a customer who told us they'd just drunk their last bottle of 2009 (one of our favourite wines ever) and that it was the wine of the night, showing better than a Puligny-Montrachet, we thought we'd endeavour again to get hold of some more stock. We've been thwarted in every attempt to get subsequent vintages, partly as it has such a devoted following, and partly it's not made every year, and when it is, it's in such small quantities, from the very best grapes, collected after 3 manual selections, there just isn't any spare.

But this time was different. Edouard was down to the last 20 cases of the 2014 and was happy to see them come to us, and he said he'd try and match that whenever he made it.

What to expect?
Starts off cool and Chablis-like, gradually opening with maturity into complex flavours of brioche, grapefruit, lime marmelade, butter, toast and almonds. Perfect for laying down but fun drinking now. 
It can be missed when young by sommeliers and journalists as it is quite reserved when young but it develops beautifully. So it is wine you have to know. Yes, the 2015 did well in Decanter, but we love wines like this that generally speaking are not lauded, as it allows the loyal followers to get hold of the wine, and at a fair price.

6 x Saumur Blanc, Les Fresnettes, Chateau de Targe 2014

We absolutely adore this wine, which is a good substitute for white burgundy when you want something a bit different an frankly more intriguing for the price. Fabulous concentrated fruit; apples, quince, excellent texture and length. Yum. Oh yes, 2014 was a cracking vintage for Loire Chenin Blanc.

Decanter "Top Five Dry Loire Whites of 2015" - 94 points “A really fascinating nose of lime leaf, polished citrus fruit and white peach that has great elegance infused with greengage and wild flowers. There is plenty of alcohol here but with impressive, pithy substance which is set up very well for the cellar. Drink 2017-2025” High Recommended, 94 points.
