Terroir

Where does this wine come from?

Coming from Chenin Blanc (100%) and located on the hillsides of Pouancay, Berrie and St Léger de Montbrillais, this terroir is dominated by Turonian limestones of the secondary era. The selected vines have naturally low yields, with a few small bunches per vine, very golden at harvest time. Harvested in late October, when the harvest has reached a beginning of over-maturity.

Winemaking

How was it produced?

Delicate pneumatic pressing and careful trimming. Vinification followed with temperature control (17 to 19°C) to preserve the aromatic potential of white Chenin. Finally, a breeding work on lees for 6 to 7 months, brings boldness and complexity.
