Pierre Menard Le Quart des Noels Chenin 2021
From the fantastic young winemaker Pierre Menard who is slowly taking over more of his family's 20 hectares and converting them to biodynamic farming.
The Quart de Noels is a very special wine, made from Chenin Blanc planted in 1920, is a wine of incredible depth, minerality and fruit expression. In the nose wet stone, candied pear and salinity mingle with intense focus and persistence. On the palate the wine is explosive, dense with good structure and acidity, apt at doing the heavy lifting. For us one of the best Chenin Blancs we have tasted.
