Four parcels of Chenin with an average vine age of 30 years old.
Multiple parcels, varied exposure
Deep clay topsoil (Argiles, the wine's namesake) and a bedrock of tuffeaux.
Farmed organically since 2010. Soils are tilled, yields kept low at 30-40hl/ha.
Native yeast fermentation in tank.
9 months of ageing in neutral barrel.
Limited. Chenin represents just a few hectares (and less than 10% of estate's total production)
Aromatically lifted with notes of apricot and anjou pear. This succulent and focused sipper is among the great Chenin Blanc values in our Loire portfolio.
