2016 Château de Fosse-Sèche Saumur Blanc «Arcane»
France, Loire Valley – Sa-Bo-Chi
Chenin Blanc | Dry medium-bodied white | Fish (including sashimi), tempura
Brothers Guillaume and Adrien run Fosse-Sèche as true stewards, reserving large parts of the estate for forest and grazing land so as to preserve the ecological diversity and balance of the land. The Arcane, their flagship white, is a distinctly Saumurois rendition of Chenin Blanc, combining power and elegance effortlessly – honey overtones, striking pear and quince flavours, and freshness throughout. It pairs wonderfully with fish of all types, even freshwater varieties such as carp.
