Chateau Petit Thouars Chenin Blanc (750ml)
Chateau du Petit Thouars is a family run 16-hectare vineyard and winery nestled in corridors of natural limestone caves in the Chinon appellation of the Loire Valley. The property was deeded to the family by Cardinal Richelieu in 1636 and vineyards that surround the farm house were planted in 1975. The wines of Petit Thoars are offer refreshing acidity and minerality and a pure expression of varietal and terroir.
The grapes were hand picked from a plot planted in 2010. Fermented and aged in used oak casks. This is a dry style of Chenin Blanc, with lots of citrus notes, minerality and nerve.
