Le Chenin de la Colline

On the Plouzeau estate, the clay and limestone soils seem to coax even more flavour from the 20 year old vines of Chenin to produce elegant wines with great flavour. The slopes on which the vines thrive face south west. We think that the Le Chenin represents excellent value for money – and it is biodynamic and is made naturally. It is rare to be able to access a well-made Chenin Blanc from the Loire made with such dedication for a price like this!
