With all the efforts put into vineyard work, Agnes and Rene Mosse vinify in a natural fashion and they are particularly attentive to minimizing manipulations and the use of sulphur. The Chenin Blanc is from young selection massale Chenin vines planted in 2001 & 2002 grown on clay and gravel soils alternating with schist. Yields in this vintage were less than 15hl/ha and harvest was done by hand with selection (tri) of grapes. Vinification is slow, malolactation fermentation takes place in barrels, which are containers not oak flavour providers, and the wine spends a further year in them before bottling. Wild honey, fleshy apricots, quince paste and woodspice. Once the wine warmed up in the glass it developed secondary nutty aromatics and layer after layer of rich flavour.
