Brendan Stater-West Current Releases
Saumur Blanc Les Chapaudaises
Since 2011, Brendan has been working behind the scenes as Romain Guiberteau’s right-hand-man. In 2015, he completed the first harvest of wine to be bottled under his own label. Coming from one hectare of Chenin Blanc less than two miles south of the hill of Breze, the soil is sand and clay over limestone.
Fermentation is in old barrels, there's no malo (because of the low pH of the soils), and the wine is aged in barrel for 18 months.
