Jean-Christophe Garnier Rouchefert Chenin Blanc VdF 2021

Jean-Christophe Garnier Rouchefert Chenin Blanc is a lively individual with quiet confidence. Golden yellow colour. Freshly cut apples and yellow orchard plums fill the nose before being closely followed by hints of sherry and beeswax. The aromas follow through to its dry and medium-bodied palate, which finishes with a crisp acidity.

100% Chenin Blanc. The fruit for this wine is grown in Jean-Christophe's certified organic vineyard in the village of Saint Lambert du Lattay, Loire. 

Manual harvest of the fruit. Long and slow soft pressing. Ambient fermentation in barrels with indigenous yeast. The wine ages for 1 year in oak barrels while it undergoes malolactic fermentation. Light filtration, no added sulphur.
