T. Boudignon, Anjou Blanc, 2018

$44.99

Thibaud Boudignon is unquestionably one of the most exciting figures in the Loire wine region. Getting his start with Savennières producer Chateau Soucherie to be their winemaker in the late 2000s, his first and most important contribution to the estate was the introduction of strict organic practices in the vineyards which, along with his immense winemaking skills, elevated this already historic domaine to new heights. The 2018 Anjou Blanc is an exceptional wine and arguably one of the best dry Chenin Blancs being made today.

Thibaud Boudignon

Thibaud Boudignon has gone through the three stages of small-producer cultdom. First, there were the tweets and instagram posts. Maybe a foreign blog or small magazine article. The allusions to his wine were rapturous, but enigmatic and mostly from overseas.

Then came phase two: devoted wine folk "suitcased" bottles home to America to share with friends. Word spread. The hunt was on.

Finally, phase three: an importer (Sacred Thirst) started bringing small amounts straight to California. Thanks guys!
