2015 VDF 'Patience'
Organic Chenin Blanc from 50 year old vines on a beautiful plot, high on a hill, located next to Bonnezeaux. The juice is pressed and then straight into barriques for fermentation. The wine was bottled in Oct 2016. This is the last ever time they made this cuvée!
The nose is heavenly, it instantly makes you relax and all your worries blow away. Healing. Mineral and slightly smokey, like a more chiseled, refined version of ch’nins on boit. If you want to drink it now, give it a decant. Otherwise you could keep it for years (stored correctly). Almost steely to drink, with a light texture. Super clean and very tight - so much tension! Super super fine schisty detail, almost chalky. This is a pure, clean Chenin with more terroir than fruit. Very, very good, with high acidity that keeps it electric and creates drive. Extremely satisfying finish.
