100% Chenin Blanc planted on schist and sandstone in a single vineyard in Anjou, hand-harvested, fermented with native yeast, and aged in vats on the lees for 11 months, before getting bottled unfiltered with just a touch of sulfur. Full-bodied, but balanced with ripe yellow fruit, fresh citrus, and smokey minerality. Really delicious.
Thomas Boutin started his own winemaking project in 2008, with only 1.8 hectares. In 2011, he inherited a compact winery and vines from his mentor and has progressively built up the number of hectares. He farms 2 hectares in Rochefort-sur-Loire and 1 hectare in Saint Aubin. He is evolving as a winemaker, and experiments whilst learning and finding his style.
Having studied enology and worked in larger wineries, he is passionate to keep the approach small-scale with minimal intervention. All wines are made without any use of chemicals, are unfined and unfiltered, and little use of sulfur.
