As a Rosenthal import since 1982, the Clos Naudin is one of the crown jewel's of both Vouvray and Neal Rosenthal's portfolio. They believe so much in these wines that they invest heavily in cellaring them so they can maintain this phenomenal backstock of vintages for your enjoyment. The still wines are traditional, powerful examples of Chenin Blanc and offer a brilliant array of fruit, floral and mineral tones. The Sec styles are always bone dry, with less than 6 g/L of residual sugar, but with considerable body and texture. As you move into the sweeter example, the honeyed notes of botrytis are more prevalent. The sparkling wines are an insider treat as the vintage releases see a minimum of 60 months of lees aging before release. They are likely the reference point for any champagne method styles in the region. This 2016 Sec is a standout in a very difficult vintage (it would be in any vintage) where most of the crop was lost. Volume goes down but concentration of flavor goes up! This intense Chenin Blanc smacks with rustic, farmyard orchard fruit, wet wool and powder-y chalk minerality with faint honeyed notes from botrytis.
