2018 Thierry Germain 'Cep by Cep' Chenin Blanc 750ml

$40.00

Region: Anjou - Loire Valley, FRA

Variety: Chenin Blanc

Organic farming

This wine comes from 100% hand-harvested Chenin Blanc, organically grown on stony clay over schist in Rochefort-sur-Loire, just south of the river opposite Savennières. Unlike the (Thierry) Germain vineyards in Saumur, where limestone dominates, the vineyards of western Anjou are influenced by the schist-rich, volcanic soils of the Massif armoricain. It's this type of rock that imparts a pungent, stony bite to the dry Chenin of the area. Picking up where last year's wine left off, the 2017 is racy/fresh and vividly fruited, with plenty of pulp and a mouth-watering spine of shimmering acidity. Vinified in two to four-year-old 400-litre casks there's dollops of white peach-like fruit mopped up by tangy, grapefruit pith freshness and an intensely succulent finish. - Notes from the importer
