Notes: A new wine from Tessa Laroche, which speaks to her passion for well crafted natural wines and her endless quest for deliciousness. Floral, incredibly fresh and zippy, this young vine Chenin is more reminiscent of Anjou Blanc than of its home terrain of Savennieres, which is normal according to Tessa as it not within appellation Savannieres!
