Dry and lean style of Chenin Blanc from the Loire Valley

100% Chenin Blanc from the esteemed Vouvray Appellation, made in a dry style from 40 year old vines. Clos de Nouys is one of the oldest AOC wines. 

Delicate nose of clove, honey, apricot and pineapple, dry and steely on the palate but not austere with tropical mango, beeswax candle, with a very long mouth watering mineral finish. Quintessential Vouvray in the traditional French style. 

Pierre Chainier house has a long wine history in Bordeaux reaching back to the 1700s, and relative newcomers to the Loire Valley. They now control 250 hectares of vines through the Loire with vineyards from Muscadet to Sancerre with the varied individual terroirs of chalky limestone of the Paris basin, to the flinty clay soils of the Cher Valley.  Husband and wife control different vineyards and produce interestingly different styles of wines.
