100% Chenin Blanc
Vineyards & Viticulture
The Vinifera line focuses on ungrafted vines. Henry Marionnet acquired this parcel from a neighbor in 2002, planted with ten hectares of Chenin Blanc vines, using massal selection to replace ungrafted vines.

Harvest & Vinification
After rigorous harvest selection and cluster thinning, the grapes are manually harvested and 100% de-stemmed. After pellicular maceration, the juice ferments in tanks with native yeast. No malolactic fermentation in order to preserve freshness. The wine then ages in stainless steel tanks until bottling the winter following harvest.
