Domaine Guiberteau 'Brézé' Saumur Blanc, France 2017
Robert Guiberteau had no family to continue his work in the vineyards until 1996 when his grandson, Romain, rose to the challenge. Romain studied under the legendary Nady Foucault at Clos Rougeard, where he still works part-time. The Saumur blanc see all time in stainless steal maintaining its freshness and approachability. This is wine of density and power. Giving it some time in the cellar would be beneficial.
