Wine Description

(2008 Vintage) "Les Chanteaux is 100% Chenin Blanc. It comes from two different vineyards: Les Goupillieres and Les Molieres, both known for their chalky soil and sunny exposures. The wine is harvested by tri which means multiple passes are made through the vineyards to pick only the ripest grapes. It is a dry, round, vibrant wine with flowery aromas and a little pear on the palate. It is wonderful and a great break from Chardonnay. This is made in very small quantities." -Importer
