100% Chenin Blanc

It's not easy to find a delicious Chenin Blanc that is a great value. When we come across a wine this stellar, we immediately snap up as much as we can! And it's organic on top of it!
Les Chênes comes from a blend of various parcels around the Azay le Rideau appellation in Cheillé and Vallère. This area is phenomenal for terroir-driven Chenin Blanc.
Aromas of white flowers and pear. Lively and beautiful.
