  • TASTING NOTES:
    Very light yellow color with green glints. White fruits on the nose, particularly peach. A balanced palate between the natural acidity of Chenin grape and residual sugars.

Description

Chenin, also called Pineau de la Loire in Touraine, is native from the Loire Valley. This varietal originated in Anjou a long time ago and is now also used in Touraine. The name of this grape comes from the “Mount Chenin” where the monks started producing wines from this varietal for the first time.
Since its apparition in the Loire, this varietal has been travelling a lot as it can adapt to many types of soils. It gives birth to very diverse wines (dry, medium- dry, semi-sweet, sweet or sparkling) with very typical aromas of honey, citrus, quince and toasted bread.
