    Ginger, chamomile, and citrus zest explode with remarkably high-toned aromatics, boldly balancing pronounced florals and bright fruit with lovely citrus-infused spice. Walnut shell and wool inject just a tinge of phenolic texture cut by sharp flinty miner

    ABOUT THIS WINE:

    Premier Nez, is dry and mineral driven, seeing up to 18 months aging in neutral fût and bottled unfiltered.

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER:

    Not from a winemaking family, but with degrees in biology and oenology, Marie Thibault began making wine in the early 2000s.  She worked for a time at François Chidaine in Montlouis, where she fell in love with Chenin Blanc.  In 2011, she founded her own 3.5 hectare domaine in Azay-le-Rideau, a lesser known environ of the Touraine appellation.  While in some sense this is a new beginning for Marie, she has over a decade of experience making wine and benefits from strong relationships with many growers in the region such as Noëlla Morantin and Frantz Saumon.  It sounds cliché, but her passion and energy are infectious; she’s also humble, learning one year to the next how to progress and improve.Marie has one contiguous parcel on a gentle, windy slope that is drier than the other vineyards of Azay-le-Rideau, which lie on a plateau.  Her vineyard is marked by white clay and limestone.  She immediately began to farm organically in 2011 and 2014 is her first certified vintage.
