From the most important white wine appellation in the Touraine district this wine is made from Chenin Blanc and in a dry style. The wine undergoes temperature controlled fermentation to retain its fresh structure and aromatic finish and is then matured on its lees for a further 6 months.
On the nose there are intense peach and apricot fruits combined with the almost wooly scent that is so classic of great Chenin Blanc. The palate shows good, bracing acidity, a hallmark of the Loire, with rich rounded, peachy fresh fruit and a herbaceous complexity. The acidity is naturally balanced by the slight residual sugar making this an exceptional wine. Drinking well now this wine has the potential to age 5-10 years.
