Chenin Blanc wines of the highest class, made by a jovial man regarded as a statesman of Montlouis. This appellation, just across the river from Vouvray, is enjoying a period of resurgence after living in its illustrious neighbour’s shadow for many years. Such classically poised expressions of the terroir as these make it easy to understand why. Rigorously hand-harvested and separated by trie, fermented long and cold with native yeasts, and minimally treated with sulphur, these are cool and expressive wines. Sadly, this will be our last vintage of this singular domaine, as Olivier has retired from the fray and sold to a neighbor. Enjoy them while you can.
