Val de Loire 'Le Talent d'Achille' Chardonnay, Domaine Guénault 2022
White Wine from France - Loire
We have been enjoying the light, easy-drinking chardonnays from the Loire for a while now. In fact one of the Bougriers' wines was one of our Wine Champions this year, and this one will not disappoint either. A little more weight and texture here, with delicate aromas of white flowers and lovely clean lines, think of it as a baby Mâcon in style.

Maison Bougrier is a successful family-owned négociant company in the Loire founded in 1885 now run by the fifth generation of Bougriers. The company has significant domaine and winery holdings in three major areas: Touraine, Anjou and Muscadet giving it full control over vineyards, grapes and production in a number of sites.
The Touraine area produces whites from both chenin blanc and sauvignon blanc grape varieties. Bougrier’s premium white from Touraine is made from 100% sauvignon blanc grapes and was originally labelled for us as The Society’s Touraine Sauvignon, now sold under the Les Hauts Lieux label.
Domaine Guénault is one of the family’s own properties and situated on steep slopes overlooking the Cher river, which gives the grapes excellent sun exposure. The sauvignon here is grassy and scented and a popular choice as an aperitif.
