    The nose shows an abundant bouquet of citrus fruits, quince, and underripe peaches. The palate is elegantly light with notes of Meyer lemon, flint, and a subtle salinity that carries through the finish. An excellent white wine to age!

    ABOUT THIS WINE

    100% Chenin Blanc from the lieu-dit ‘Clos de La Hutte’ in the hamlet of La Poissonnière which is a site of a former monastery. The vines were planted in 2011 – massal selection and are grown on solid schist, some spots to the surface, others 15cm of clay and sand before hitting the mother rock. Vinification involves indigenous yeast, no malo, and aged in 50% 350l and 50% 500l barrels (15% new).

    ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

    Thibaud Boudignon is unquestionably one of the most exciting figures in wine today. Originally from Bordeaux, he honed his winemaking craft while working at Philipe Charlopin in Gevrey-Chambertin during the early 2000s. He was shortly thereafter hired by Savennières producer Chateau Soucherie to be their winemaker in the late 2000s. His first and most important contribution to the estate was the introduction of strict organic practices in the vineyards which, along with his immense winemaking skills, elevated this already historic domaine to new heights. It was in 2009 that he began to make wine under his own name from a scant 3.5 ha in the heart of Anjou and Savennieres. Knowing that the quality of his fruit was of most importance, he committed himself absolutely to the health of his vines, choosing to farm organically and spend the majority of his time in the vineyards. His devotion paid off quickly, for in just a few vintages, his name began to circulate among Loire growers, eventually to top restaurants in Paris, and finally overseas. The speed at which he has garnered so much praise speaks to the remarkable quality of his wines.
