Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Antoine Foucault, the son of Charlie Foucault from Clos Rougeard, began in 1999 with three hectares of leased plots. Today, the majority of his almost seven hectares of biodynamic vineyards are planted with Chenin Blanc on hills around Brézé. A rising star, he ferments his wines in barrel, where they remain for as long as three years without racking. His Charpentrie is a selection of partly 100-year-old vines from that site that is bottled without filtering and with almost no sulfur.
Elegant, structured, minerally, and very pure, with notes of yellow apples, stone fruits honeycomb, and white flowers. Long, beautiful finish.
