Origin: France - Loire
Primary Varietal: Chenin Blanc
A true rarity: a white Chinon and from one of the undeniable masters of the Chinon appelation, Maison Couly-Dutheil. As you may have guessed, it is 100% chenin blanc, from two different vineyards in Chinon: Les Goupillieres and Les Molieres, both known for their chalky soil and sunny exposures. . It is a cristalline pure white, intense, very fresh and extremely aromatic, with floral notes, papaya, grass and soft minerals on the nose. The palate is fruity, delicate and soft, and fresh and bright in the extreme. No wood, but this wine does see extended lees contact with batonnage to further its complexity and power. A wonderful and delicious break from Chardonnay.
