Description

From a section of the Clos de Ste Anne vineyard known as ‘La Bas,’ that loosely translates to ‘over there.’ The winemaking takes place in 600-litre demi-muids barrels, where very little is done to the wine, except for discouraging malolactic fermentation to retain the famous chipped stone, slatey minerality that Chenin Blanc does so well.

Smells

A waxy, floral nose showing honeycomb, pears, quince paste and lanolin.

Tastes

Dry on the palate, the texture is utterly thrilling, filled with complex mineral nuances, creamy notes from aging ‘sur lie’ and a beautifully fruited finish with a subtle nutty, honeyed richness. A superb example of Chenin Blanc with a style that’s all its own. Enjoy between now and 2030 if well cellared.
