The 2017 Chenin Blanc is a combination of grapes, from two adjacent blocks. The one vineyard was planted in the early 70s and is now in its 3rd year of organic conversion. The other vineyard was planted in the mid-60s and is the original biodynamic block. The blocks are farmed identically, both organically and according to the biodynamic principles. The wine is made with the same minimal interventionist way, as with all out other certified wines. The grapes were whole bunch pressed and lightly settling before natural fermentation occurred in a combination of 300l second-fill French oak barrels and two 2500l foudré. The wine was aged on its lees for 10 months with a further two month ageing in stainless steel tank before bottling.
