45 + year old Chenin Blanc vines in a prime site. This is so beautiful and one of those wines that remind us why we love wine. Ethereal, tropical aromatic, yet super balanced and elegant. Mineral driven in the best of ways.
Super small producer focused on farming biodynamically and the beauty shows in this bottle. In 2010, he quietly accrued some beautiful, old-vine parcels along the Premiere Cote of Vouvray (the steepest and rockiest section of Vouvray – home to the best vines of the village). During nights and weekends, he would work his 4 ha of vines biodynamically, eventually making his first vintage in 2011. Today he has committed himself full time to his small, but growing domaine. Only indigenous yeasts are used, never any malo and the wines are aged in older 400L barrels. With his small domaine, Florent is part of a young and talented group of vignerons who have elevated this noble appellation through biodynamic farming and non-interventionist winemaking.
