    François produces this ‘sec tendre’ cuvée from 45/50 year old hillside vineyards. It is made by arresting the alcoholic fermentation by reducing the temperature down to 1 to 2˚C for two weeks.  This leaves 20g/l of unfermented sugars though the beauty of this wine is that its harmony is such that you don’t notice the sugars at all.  Very good weight of fruit on the attack, with the palate showing ripe grapefruit, exotic fruits, and an intense saline mineral flavour, this finishes with the clear, cutting edge so typical of chenin.  For drinking now to 2024.
