This wine is 100% Chenin Blanc from a single hectare of vines in a lieu dit planted in 2000. The Chenin vineyard was planted from a massal selection of cuttings from Domaine Huet in Vouvray.The soil is a meter of chalky clay over white limestone. The yields are about 40 hl/ha and the grapes are manually harvested and pressed directly into tank. Once fermentation starts naturally, the juice is racked into a mix of 4-5 year old 225L barrels and 7-8 year old 400L barrels. The wine finishes fermentation and then rests on the lees for 24 months with no battonage.
