Chenin Blanc 2021
This dry wine takes its name from a lieu-dit located in Vernou, although in reality Brunet sources the grapes from a wider source of parcels, mostly in La Vallée de Cousse which is located behind the village of Chançay. The vines here range from between 15-20 years and are planted on the classic soils of the 2ème côteaux; clay and perruches (flint). The wine is raised in tank and bottled early. As always it is very fresh and pure on the nose, with delicate green apple and citrus oil aromas and a fine floral lift. The mouthfeel is bright, zippy and crisp with good concentration and grip and a nicely nervy finish. This is a perfect wine for those looking for something dry, zesty and fresh with a lovely saline finish.
