Pierre Menard Le Clos des Mailles Chenin 2018
Chenin Blanc from the Clos de Mailles vineyard. The vines are found on the highest point of this hillside vineyard on phthalite (siltstone) and shist soils.
The work in the vineyard and cellar follows the principles of natural winemaking, where plants are protected with herbal teas and the grapes are pressed gently to ferment on their native yeasts and to mature in used barrels undisturbed for 10 months on their fine lees. Unfiltered, unfined.
