2021 VDF 'Fragile'

La Grange aux Belles

Regular price $65 750ml Sale

100% Chenin Blanc. During harvest, the team usually visits each parcel 2-3 times (sometimes up to 5 times) to pick grapes at different levels of maturity. For Fragile, they choose grapes from select parcels with younger vines. The grapes are sorted by in the vineyard and then again back at the winery, where they select only the most golden grapes. Aged in used barrels for 12 months. Not fined or filtered.

The 2021 is a lot more focused than previous years. Unripe pineapples and cream, apples and fresh meadow flowers. Light in the mouth, with beautiful schisty tension and lots of restraint. Fresh cut apples, lime zest, hints of honey and impressive minerality. Very high quality Chenin - this is the ultimate crowd pleaser.
