Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Quentin & Angelique Bourse’s estate is certified biodynamic, which is quite rare in Azay-Le-Rideau, and has been for over ten years. His vines cover approximately twelve hectares. This wine comes from two plots blended together, 2019 aged in concrete tanks, and 2018 in combo of neutral barrel and amphora. Very little sulfur added at crush, and none at bottling.
A fresh Chenin Blanc, harvested from young vines on silex soils, the wine is stony yet lush - medium-bodied with honeyed pear, Meyer lemon, white flowers and a refreshing dose of ocean-breeze salinity. Wonderful balance of body and acidity.
