Les Vignes de Babass, Joseph Anne Francoise 2018
Another incredible wine from the king of Loire, Babass. 100% Chenin from the Loire Valley which are hand-harvested, fermented using indigenous yeasts with no fining, filtering or added SO2. Overall a round, creamy, rich everyday white wine with lovely acidity. Has great ageing potential.
Due to its northern location, the Loire Valley offers superb white wines which, wherever they come from, have as a common denominator superb freshness, great tension and beautiful minerality. Off-dry but distinctly savoury. This is reminiscent of the wines Babass used to make with Pat Desplats under Domaine des Griottes.
This wine is made with Chenin grapes, Chenin Blanc in its most classic form in the Loire Valley is full of floral and honeyed aromas and quince and apple-like flavours with good zippy acidity.
Babass is something of a legend in the natural wine world. He was formerly part of Domaine des Griottes and has now decided to go it alone with his 2.4 hectares of Cabernet Franc, Grolleau and Chenin Blanc. His wines sum up natural wine for a lot of people – wild but pure and compellingly drinkable.
