Confluence means the junction of two rivers, especially rivers of approximately equal width or an act or process of merging. A poignant name for Domaine de Bellivière's négociant project. The Chenin Blanc is purchased from the south of Anjou in Bonnezeaux grown on a bedrock of schist. This presents a wildly different presentation of the chenin than his own domaine that is mainly limestone (Tuffeau). A broader nice body marked by fresh white fruit, especially peach, vinified dry. Direct press and barrel fermented with native yeasts, then aged in old barrels, minimal amount of sulfer is added at press and bottling.
