Where does Chenin Blanc come from?

Chenin Blanc is an old white wine variety that is native to France. It has been cultivated in the Loire region since the 9th century. The grape is also widespread in other parts of the world, including South Africa, Australia and New Zealand. The best Chenin Blanc wines are produced in the Loire and South Africa.

On which soils and in which climate does Chenin Blanc grow particularly well?

Chenin Blanc is a very adaptable grape variety that can thrive on different soils and climatic conditions. However, it thrives best on slate soils in a temperate climate. It probably achieves the most exciting results in Anjou. Slate soils provide the vine with the necessary minerality, while the temperate climate supports the ripening of the grapes.

What does Chenin Blanc taste like?

Chenin Blanc is an extremely complex and very aromatic grape variety. It can have aromas of citrus fruits, tropical fruits, honey, beeswax, nuts and herbs. The taste of Chenin Blanc can vary significantly depending on the style. Dry Chenin Blanc wines are often acidic and mineral. It really delivers on slate. Sweet Chenin Blanc wines can be very complex and of high quality. A clear parallel to German Riesling.

What dishes does Chenin Blanc go best with?

Chenin Blanc is a versatile wine variety that goes well with many different dishes. Dry Chenin Blanc wines go well with seafood, poultry and white meat. Sweet Chenin Blanc wines go well with desserts, cheese and Asian cuisine.

Is Chenin Blanc dry?

Chenin Blanc can be vinified in many different styles, from dry to sweet. The Chenin Blanc wines from Mark and Martial Angeli from the Domaine de la Sannsoniere in Anjou can have significant differences in residual sugar depending on the vintage. Dry Chenin Blanc wines are generally the most common, but sweet Chenin Blanc wines, so-called liqueur wines, are also popular.
