Montlouis sur Loire Blanc "Touche Mitaine", Le Rocher des Violettes, Motnlouis, Loire 2019
Chenin, V - Ve
Old-vine Chenin Blanc from the Montlouis region of the Loire. This cuvée “Touche Mitaine” comes from a sloped 4-hectare parcel. The terroir is 1.5m of clay and silex (flint) stones before hitting pure chalk. Three quarters of the wine has been vinified in oak, lending it richness and toast, but a lifted character and great acidity means there’s no undue heaviness.
