Domaine des Hauts Baigneux Les Chenes Chenin Blanc 2019 Loire Valley

$39.95

Domaine des Hauts Baigneux Les Chenes Chenin Blanc 2019

Varietal: 100% Chenin Blanc

Complex wine with hints of smoke, pear, baked apple, lemon, peach, ginger and white flowers.The palate is juicy and filled with notes of pineapple, orange peel and yellow plum leading up a bright fresh creamy finish.

Average vine age: 25 years. Clay with limestone underneath. Direct press, natural yeast fermentation. Elevage in stainless steel tanks, then 3-4 year old used barrels. Production: 6,500 bottles a year.

In 2013, longtime friends Nicolas Grosbois and Philippe Mesnier purchased 12 hectares of vines in Azay-le-Rideau, an excellent, though relatively unknown terroir a few kilometers east of Chinon. They immediately began farming all the vines organically, and set about on an ambitious project to reintroduce the wines of Azay-le-Rideau. Traditionally, Azay le Rideau is famous for white wines made from Chenin Blanc, and rosé wines made from Grolleau and Gamay.

Most of the vineyards are located in Azay-le-Rideau on the lieu-dit “Hauts Baigneux”. The domaine also owns a two hectare plot in Saché, close to the former studio of Alexander Calder, the famous American artist. This great flint-heavy terroir produces the two top cuvées of the domaine: Le Clos des Brancs and Blanc Chenin.

The wines of Domaine des Hauts Baigneux are all produced with natural yeast, and bottled with minimal intervention. The cuvées Les Chenes and Les Pentes are delicious vins de soif that showcase the best of Loire Valley. The sparkling wines are fantastic bottles of everyday bubbles, and the single vineyard Chenin Blancs are a testament to the towering quality of this terroir.
