2017 Le Facteur 'Su'l'Velo' Chenin Blanc

Loire Valley, France

This lemon pith, caramel, honey like yet super dry and playful Chenin is from Le Facteur's 90+ year old vines. The limestone soil in the Loire maintains a balanced mineralogy through the wine. Here the land is ploughed by horse and grapes hand harvested. Following a gentle press the wine follows ageing in old french barriques and then aged for a number of months. The resultant wine is a truely pure and loud expression of Chenin from the region. The wine is bottled with minimal sulphur.

2017 Le Facteur 'Su'l'Velo' Chenin Blanc
About the maker

Located in Vouvray, Mathieu Cosme is now the 5th generation at the family estate in Noizay.

Certified organic and using biodynamic preparations on the 11 hectares of vines, Mathieu plows the land by horse and harvest is done by hand. Fermentation occurs “naturally”, with indigenous yeasts only. The soil is composed primarily of clay and limestone, which translates perfectly though the wine as pretty, caramel, honeydew and fresh whites.
