This "Original Chenin Blanc is the woodless version, to make a wine in which the pure fruit and freshness of the Chenin Blanc come into their own. The wine in its purest form, as it is also made in the Loire region, which hardly plays a role in the making of Vouvray or Montlouis. The aim is therefore to make a wine that is immediately drinkable, smooth and juicy. Here too, yields are low, up to about 40 hectoliters per hectare. The sticks are on average 25 years old and are partly planted as bush vines. Fermentation takes place at a low temperature, in order to preserve fruit and freshness as much as possible. It is completely dry, so without noticeable residual sweetness, so that it pairs perfectly with the meal. But even without food, it is too tempting to leave it!
