Thibaud Boudignon is a rising star of the Loire Valley. This Chenin comes from 37 year-old vines, fermented wild and aged in 30% new oak. The startling intensity and energy of Thibaud's house style on display here. A phenomenal, age-worthy example of the noble Chenin Blanc variety.
Extremely viscous, this is a seriously delicious Chenin Blanc! From the first pour, it's clear there is something special with this wine. Profoundly rich in texture, this 13% ABV bottling from rising star Thibaud Boudignon gives classic botrytis flavors of honey drizzled over yellow apple along with notes of lemon, tangerine, nectarine and peach. Boasting an intense chalky salinity, this effort is drinkable now and will continue to gain in complexity with another 3-7 years of bottle age.
The vineyard is currently undergoing from organic to biodynamic.
