Region: Loire Valley
Type: White Wine
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Thomas cultivates 3 hectares of Chenin Blanc in the municipality of Vouvray. These are leased vineyards that have been converted to organic since 2018. The vines are between 20 and 80 years old. The soil here is composed of silty clays and tufaceous (volcanic) rock that give the wines the right balance of richness, minerality and concentration.
Aged for about 9 months in old oak tonneaux. No filtration or added sulfur. Notes of white flowers, candied lemon, orchard fruits and caramel. This is a complex, elegant wine with great balance and minerality.
