Château de Brézé has a long and storied history, first being mentioned in texts in 1068, lauded by King René of Anjou in the 15th century and served at all the royal courts. In 1957, when the AOC of Saumur Champigny was established, the owner of Château de Brézé refused to be part of the appellation, saying that his estate's vineyards were the best and deserved an appellation all their own. And he was probably right. Unfortunately, the wines from those exceptional vineyards were terrible. Lucky for us, the winery sold in 2009 to Le Comte de Colbert, who recruited Arnaud Lambert from nearby Domaine de Saint Just to make the wine. He changed the vineyards over to organic farming and began producing truly stellar wines worthy of their source. The 2012 Château de Brézé Clos David is all estate-grown Chenin Blanc raised in stainless steel to preserve freshness. It has the slightly-oxidized note of a great White Burgundy and a lovely richness that allows it to pair with a variety of foods.

Final Day of Alimentaria

What a crazy day! I made a last minute round at the fair. The general public is allowed into Alimentaria today, so it’s even more crowded and loud! A quick pass through El Corte Ingles for gifts and on to taste some new projects from our great friend in wine Eric Solomon of European Cellars. There are some terrific new whites on the horizon---great things from Galicia and Rueda. I tried a new Priorat that you folks are going to love, love, love! Right now it’s 1:30 AM and I have just gotten back from dinner. The wind is howling loudly outside and I need to pack my bags. It’s time to say good bye to Barcelona, one of my favorite cities in the world and to all of the lovely people who made this week at Alimentaria fun, educational, and a pleasure. ---Hasta la proxima vez! -Anne Pickett
