Winemaking: Organic Chardonnay and Sauvignon Gris grapes from young vines were harvested by hand. Direct press in whole bunches. Fermentation with indigenous yeast in stainless steel. Aged in tank on fine lees. No fining, filtration or added sulphur.

This Wine: A natural white wine with a sophisticated and balanced character. Citrus fruit, minerals and white flowers bring complexity alongside fresh acidity. A fine example of the Cheverny appellation. Works with or without food. Very limited availability. 

Notes on the Winemaker:  In 1988, Christian Venier began working 7 hectares of vines in the Cheverny appealltion of the Loire valley.  He is cousin of Thierry Puzelat / Clos du Tue-Boeuf who is located near by. Christian's wines are precise but full of character thanks to his meticulous work in the vineyard and hands-off approach in the cellar.
