Les Caillardières is a single vineyard terroir of schist and sandstone where the grapes are normally harvested fully ripe, quite golden, in order to attain the classic Chenin complexity which is so desirable.
Aromatics of ripe quince, citrus zest, beeswax, almond and hazelnuts lead into a medium full-bodied wine with crisp acidity, a nice mineral backbone and plenty of fleshy texture. Nice tension and honeyed notes are in perfect balance.
