Description

Atypical White from Loire Valley

The white Chinon is a rare wine, comprising just 2% from this AOC. Jean-Maurice’s dry white Chinon comes largely from clay-limestone soils, as well as soils composed of sand and gravel from the Loire. In order to preserve the quality of this delicate grape variety (Chenin Blanc) vines are stripped by hand.  After manual harvest, the grapes are pressed by a pneumatic system. The wine is particularly fine and rich in aromas, specifically white fruit and honey, thanks to low temperature fermentation using native yeasts. The wine is fresh, accompanying foods such as crustaceans and fish in sauce, and can be enjoyed alone as an aperitif.
