This was looking smart last week, sitting on the beach up at Port Stephens. Red apple, white nectarine and a nice, fleshy cut of acid. Very dry but a nice dash of generosity in the mid-palate to balance the freshness of acid. Great Chenin blanc from one of the rising stars of the Loir. – Ches Cook, FWC.
From his largest single holding of 3.5 ha of south-east facing vines planted in 1985 on light sandy clay soil over limestone. Vinification using no SO2 in stainless steel tank with indigenous yeast and no malolactic. Bottled in March 2019 with alcohol of 13.7% this shows excellent freshness and precision in a pure fruit-forward expression of chenin in its most pure state. Very attractive and approachable right away Vintage & Vine (Importer).
