2016 De La Noblaie

La Grande Ourse-Chinon ( Chenin Blanc )



White Chinon is about as rare as it gets. With only 2% of the AOC planted to Chenin Blanc, white Chinon is made by only a handful of estates; only a small amount is allocated to the United States. Jerome Billard’s version resembles a top flight Montlouis with beautiful freshness and often mineral complexity. A waxy, floral masterpiece from 50 year old vines grown on tuffeau soils then harvested by hand, pressed and fermented by indigenous yeast in tank.
