Domaine de la Chenardière is a large estate of 100 hectares located in the Layon valley. The vines perch on the steep slopes of the right bank of the Layon river.

The autumn humidity provides the perfect conditions for botrytis or noble rot, which concentrates the sugars in the grapes while the Chenin Blanc retains its natural acidity.

The botrytis grapes are harvested when they reach the optimum acidity level. Then, the grapes are gently pressed for 7 hours. A static settling occurred before the fermentation started and last for 2 months. The wine is aged in temperature controlled vats for a minimum of 6 months.

Grape: Chenin Blanc

Tasting Notes: A delicately sweet wine with flavours of honeyed apple and grapefruit.

Food Match: Ideal with blue cheeses and pudding such as a chocolate tart.

Closure: Cork

Farming Practices: Contains Sulfites
