About the wine
Sandstone and schist soils. Stony, well-exposed hillsides that favour the development of autumn mists and botrytis. Hand harvested in successive tries to collect only highly botrytis-affected fruit. Fermentation/ maturation in new and 1 year old oak barrels for 18 months.
The nose, fine and elegant, is very "botrytized", it is marked by notes of candied apricot and candied orange peel. The characteristics of the shale terroir are also present: "zan" and hot stone. The palate, very sweet, is powerful and nevertheless elegant. The usual sweet nervousness of the Chenin blanc which ripens on shale soils prevents all this sweetness from turning into softness.
