Domaine Ogereau Clos le Grand Beaupreau
Region: Savennieres, Loire
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
A child of the vines and son of one of Anjou’s top winemakers, Emmanuel Ogereau is a symbol of the wine revolution taking place in the Loire Valley. With the likes of Stephane Bernaudeau as an inspiration, he allows each plot of Chenin express its own unique terroir, using organic farming and low intervention winemaking.
This is one of his most powerful Chenins, from grapes grown at the highest point of Savennieres, at the foot of the Moulin de Beaupréau on loose schist and sand. Green and golden apple, a gentle bitterness and a serious mineral edge.
