Grape: Chenin Blanc
Jérôme Lambert tends just a few hectares of vines near Rablay-sur-Layon, in a remote part of the Loire, south of Angers. He farms Chenin Blanc organically from a single plot of low-yielding vines up to fifty years old planted over schist. He’ll often make several harvests at various stages of ripeness, and his wines display tense, focused expressions of Chenin that possess a wonderful ability to age.
De L'Air is a refreshing sparkling Chenin Blanc - elegant, with depth and balanced acidity. Notes of pear, lemon, candied ginger and salty sea air. No added sulfur.
