100% Chenin Blanc from various plots planted on Spilite and Sandy Shale in the Loire Valley, France. Certified Organic, Spontaneously Fermented with Native Yeast.

ABOUT: Le Clos Galerne is the creation of idealists, a young winemaking family who relocated here to search out the best terroirs. Now they produce great terroir-driven wine with brilliant minerality and expression. Having trained as oenologists and at Château d’Esclans, Cédric Bourez and his wife Myrtille searched for years to find the right domain and in 2018 fell in love with the Anjou region—more precisely, the mediaeval village of Rochefort-sur-Loire, where they purchased a small estate focused on the production of Chenin Blanc from the finest old vine plantings across distinct and varied terroirs facing the Layon River.

VINIFICATION: Average of 25 year-old vines. Harvested and sorted by hand, and vinified using slow pressing, after which the juice settled for 24 to 48 hours, undergoing slow alcoholic and malolactic fermentation with indigenous yeast. The wine then aged in tank on its fine lees for 11 months. Organic farming, Low Intervention.

TASTING NOTES: Yellow color with Gold hints. This wine's bouquet is Floral with a hint of Stone Fruit, Pear & Apple notes. The Palate has nuanced touches of Honeyed Almonds, matching Ripe Apples & Stone Fruit in a generous medley of flavors. Minerally & complex, with a long finish. It is ready to drink now.

FOOD PAIRING: Crab, Shrimps, Raw Vegetables, Aperitif, White Fish w/ Butter, White Meat, Mackerel Rillettes.
