Product Description

Chenin Blanc is one of the most noble white wine varietals planted in France. This wine is 100% Chenin Blanc from hillside parcels just outside the village of Vouvray. Produced from young vines, this bottling is almost always a light demi-sec. This wine is assembled in Vouvray, sees no wood, is bottled fresh and young, and is designed to offer the striking crispness that one expects from the Loire, but with a very small amount of residual sugar for an added layer of complexity. “La Craie” (or “chalk” in French) refers to the abundance of white, soft rock in the area known locally as “Tuffeau.” It is found in the vineyards as well, ensuring good drainage down the slopes and keeping the soil warm at night.
