Bordeaux native Thibaud Boudignon is one of the most exciting up-and-coming producers in the Loire Valley. He has been producing organic and biodynamic wines under his own name since 2009 and emphasizes a minimalist philosophy in his cellar. ‘La Vigne Cendrée’ is Thibauld’s smallest parcel (0.5 hectares) and is located on a small hillside in the commune of Savennieres, where purple schist, granite, and clay silt soils dominate the terrain. Fruit is aged in a combination of aged barrels and foudre.
A generous and mineral-driven Chenin Blanc with with citrus and stony qualities, tense acidity and a solid structure.
