Faveray-Mâchelles, Maine-et-Loire, Loire, France
Wild Scale: 2/5
Vegan friendly wine
Winemaking: Organic Chenin Blanc grapes from a plot planted on schist soils in 1973 were
harvested by hand and underwent fermentation with indigenous yeast in fibreglass tanks. Aged in old barrels. No filtration or fining. Small amount of added sulphur on bottling.
This Wine: Fresh and saline white wine displaying those magical qualities of Chenin Blanc grown on schist. Mineral and citrus flavours with great body texture. Best served with food.
Notes on the Winemaker: Julien Delrieu hails from Brittany and travelled the world researching artisan food and wine production before settling in Anjou. He works just over 3 hectares of vines and 2018 was his first vintage. His wines display energy and balance already so the future looks very promising.
