12 months’ ageing in oak barrels with a regular stirring of the lees. Bottled in September.
Varietals
Chenin Blanc : 100%

Advice

Serving

Tasting notes
Golden hue. Complex nose with a blend of ripe yellow-fleshed fruit (damsons) and empyreumatic notes (brioche, caramel). Long, full and well-structured on the palate, carried by a harmonious balance of acidity and fat. Lingering finish with spicy notes (sweet vanilla).
Food pairing
Serve with river fish (pike-perch), chicken in a creamy sauce, Beuchelle à la Tourangelle (sweetbreads, kidney, creamed mushrooms), andouillettes cooked over a wood fire or mature goat's cheeses.
