Therry Germain from a long line of Bordeaux winemakers, arrived here in 1991, attracted by the region’s perfect balance of grape varietal, climate and terroir, which he considers one of the finest in France. The vineyard is worked in a natural way with the goal of keeping the vine and the soil at its healthiest and Thierry has become a fully-fledged advocate of biodynamics.
Produced with grapes from a plot of vines some 85 years old, grown on clayey-limestone with sandstone and flint subsoil.
Incredible vitality on the palate with perfect balancing acidity and tension. The length of the wine is testament to the age of the vines and the low yields. A paean to Chenin Blanc, a snapdragon on an anvil, and drinking it will give your goosebumps goosebumps.
