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.
Skin contact Chenin matured for 9 months in an amphora half-buried in the cellar and made without filtration or sulphites. Intense, mineral white with a touch of reduction for emphasis.
