About

95

“A brilliant value Chenin that delivers the moreish combination of steely acidity with sweet peaches and pear creaminess. There is a touch of residual sugar in this - but it is only discernible through the weight of fruit, never through sweetness. Drunk over a family lunch with heaped plates of langoustines and prawns, topped of with baguette and salty butter. Heaven, from an estate that I don't know well but was made hugely happy by.”

Product Description:

"This wine is produced with chenin grapes on clayish silicate soil, handly harvested, this wine ferments two months in barrels. It matures in the tank with his fine lees until the spring.

The wine develops a good balance between acidity and a light residual sugar which gives a natural fresh flavour.

The soil gives a mineral taste of flint stone which will increase with the time.

It can be characterized by his yellow, shining color and his apple,pear, quince and citrus fruits ripes aromas." - Winery
