A negociant project in the Loire Valley by Bruno Ciofi, his mission as a biodynamic farmer is to champion local wines that express the identity of his region. TThe grapes are coming from two different terroirs he knows very well in Thouarcé on the left bank of the Layon. This is a very unique expression of Chenin, combining the savory tannic structure of the schist with a generosity brought by the faluns. On the nose, the wine is opulent and appealing showing mandarine flower, Anjou pear, bay leaf with faintest hint of marzipan and baking spice. The palate is tamed yet structured, the angular nature of chenin rounded by the ripeness of the grapes and a mastered oxido-reductive aging.
