Of the 2011 vintage, Andrew Neather said: "This is hardly the most sophisticated Loire Chenin Blanc, but it's bright, open and juicy. And it's rare enough to find anything drinkable under £5 these days, especially from the Loire, where growers are finding it harder than ever to make a living at the ex-cellar prices demanded for this sort of UK price point."

Of the 2011 vintage, Andrew Neather said: "About as good a white as you'll find under a fiver: crisp, bright, juicy chenin blanc fruit from the Loire."
Lacheteau is LGCF's main property in the Loire, based in Saumur. One of the features of Lacheteau is the important production of estate-bottled wines (5 million bottles per year). In addition 55 million bottles of branded and own label wines are vinfied and produced at Lacheteau.
One of the specific features of Lacheteau lies in the important share of business devoted to marketing estate-bottled wines (5 to 6 million bottles per year). This policy is based on long-term work on two key points: - Monitoring the estates and the quality of the wines, - The conditions for bottling on the property, which must be safe and in line with the wines’ organoleptic qualities.
