Mark Angeli
“Based in Anjou, Mark and Christine Angeli farm 30 acres under biodynamics,
including 20 acres of vines. Since they bought their property in 1990, they
have replanted at a high density, training the vines as goblet rather than using
a trellising system. Their chenin blanc has an ethereal perfume, with lily-of-the
valley floral notes. It’s a buxom Loire beauty, layering ripe flavors of star fruit
and papaya over a creamy texture, touches of sweetness wrapped into the
tight structure. This has the energy to age for a decade or more.”
