Note

Arrives mid August

From the oldest and finest vineyard of the estate. The vines are growing directly overhead with roots penetrating the solid limestone bedrock into the cellar.
Fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels, this wine starts out with a honeyed nose with beautifully integrated gentle oak notes. It then shows citrus and caramelized pears with very fine lines and crisp, tense acidity. A beautiful example of how fine dry Loire Chenin can be.
