2017 La Grapperie La Desirée
Some of these Chenin vines are over 100 years old.
The wine stayed in various sized old barrels on the lees for just over a year. It has a haunting complexity that will keep you puzzled, whilst at the same time has a relaxed friendly vibe that will make you feel like you’re right at home. It is an amazing wine. Zero sulfites. The mouth-watering acidity really lingers as well, showing off its zesty characteristics. The balance is impeccable, as is the incredible length. With time the tension really builds, offering line and direction. It really is an electric example of a superb and complete Chenin Blanc.
