Region: Savennières, Loire, France

Vegan friendly wine 

Winemaking: Biodynamic Chenin Blanc grapes were harvested by hand. Gentle press and then fermented in old wooden barrels with indigenous yeast. Aged for 12 months in old oak. No filtration, fining or added sulphur.

This Wine: Chenin Blanc at its very best, from arguably the best terroir for this grape variety, the schist soils of Savennières. We tried at a wine fair very close to the vineyard and were blown away. Complex, rich and intense with notes of baked apple and peach. Dry with incredible mineral backbone and strong saline edge. Partner with fish. 

Notes on the Winemaker: Agnès & René Mosse established the domaine in 1999 and now the 17 hectares of vines are tended to by their sons Sylvestre and Joseph. The family produces some of the best Chenin Blancs around thanks to their meticulous biodynamic work in the vineyards and hands-off approach in the cellar.
