Varenne de Chanzé 2018
A Wine That
takes Pierre's vision and propels it. This is the kinda wine that makes your mouth water before you've even tasted it, and when you do? Oatmeal, apple and hazelnut delight. If we could drizzle this on our breakfast, we would.

Where and How?
This is organically farmed Chenin Blanc from a single vineyard situated high up on the hill, facing south onto the Layon river.
Pressed directly and fermented naturally, before ageing in a combination of barrels and amphorae. Bottled unfined and unfiltered.
The Winemaker: Pierre Ménard
Pierre Ménard is one of those rare, quiet visionaries. A thinker, you can tell he philosophises over much more than simply what's in the glass. Having converted some of his parents' vines to organics, he is now going from strength to strength in his self-built winery, crafting some of the most compelling Chenins and Cabernets to come out of the Loire in recent years.
