In the westernmost part of the Loire Valley along the Atlantic coast is the Fiefs Vendeens. J. Mourat makes a easy-drinking white blend of Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay that has fresh crispness and medium body.
From the mouth of the importer (Coeur Wine Company):
"Vignobles Mourat was created in 1974 with the purchase of the Chateau Marie de Fou estate by Jérémie Mourat’s father. Jérémie, a dynamic young winemaker, took over for his father in 2000 and has steadily been raising the profile for their region, the Fiefs Vendéens.... he has been converting to organic farming, working naturally in the cellar, and championing the history and traditions of this winemaking region, which can trace its roots to the Romans."
