PRODUCER: Our family vineyards have been anchored in the Loire since 1886 – more than four generations. Together, we harvest between the Loire and Vienne rivers, Bourgueil and Chinon, according to the rules of organic and biodynamic agriculture. Our wines are the result of terroir, conscientious teamwork, and artisanal savoir-faire, made of 100 % pure grapes, a pure origin, converted into wine with native yeasts found naturally on the skins (contrary to synthetic yeasts created in a laboratory), without chemical additives, and the addition of sulphur limited to a strict minimum for its survival.
WINEMAKING: The wine comes from 50-year old Chenin Blanc vines planted in flinty soil. A very gentle pressing, followed by a short vinification in stainless steel. There is no maloactic fermentation and the wine is bottled in the April following harvest.
TASTING NOTE: Straw yellow in the glass, with aromas of pear and melon developing into citrus and pineapple notes, with honeycomb and goats milk wrapped in a loving shroud of sweet blossom. The wine has a soft texture, a stroke of mineral, and notes of wildflowers. It is a wine of true pleasure.
