Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
This wine is produced within the Anjou appellation but is intentionally declassified as VDF. Les Bonnes Blanches is a sector of vines widely considered to be the top terroir in the area. Its location next to the Layon River is geologically ideal for winemaking. The Mosse family intentionally harvests earlier to produce dry whites. The soils are composed of shallow decomposing schist and quartz on schist rock, so the roots of the vineyards' 40 year old vines can get very deep, providing an unparalleled level of minerality in the wine. Organic/biodynamic farming. Grapes are slow-pressed, fermented and aged in old Burgundian barrels. Minimal sulfur added at bottling.
Rich and textured, with notes of ripe apricots and pears, with a touch of wax and white flower aromas.
