There is an elemental quality to the Chenin Blanc of Anjou, a solidity to it, as if it might maintain its shape without the help of a glass, as if you might chew on it a bit as you drink it. If you read a wine review that talks about a wine with ‘depth’ or ‘dimension,’ this is the quality they reference. Le Clos Galerne’s Balade en Chenin, brought to life by Cedric & Myrtille Bourez, has this three dimensional quality. Their domaine is on a curiously mineral rich form of basalt called spilite in the very heart of Anjou’s wine country, the village of Chaume, with additional parcels in Savennieres. This is where Chenin Blanc breaks the volume knob off. Even the aroma seems to take shape, with layer after layer of pear, cherry, Cara Cara orange, camomile, honeysuckle, rose water, passionfruit, beeswax, lime leaf, and salt. The palate is full bodied, with a resonant core of orange surrounded by honeycomb, lemon curd, candied pineapple and lime zest. That textural quality referenced above is difficult to fully capture in words, but there is a seamless intensity to it, like the scenes with the obelisk in 2001 Space Odyssey, or Bach’s Cello Suite No.1. There’s plenty of acidity in here, but there’s so much going on that it never feels out of place. This is a wine that belongs to rich foods with strong flavors. Crab from the sea, pork from the land or duck from the air.
