TASTING COMMENT
THE EYE, THE NOSE, THE MOUTH

A sweet late-harvest wine made from chenin blanc grapes. Marmalade, golden citrus, honeycomb, whiffs of savoury stone and lengthy, lingering candied apricot and perfumed nougat notes. Heady concentration and richness is carried with focused, driving acidity and exceptional vitality.

TASTING COUNCIL
THE TIP OF THE VINEER

Manual harvest by successive sifts of grapes that have reached over-maturity (around 300/350 gr of natural sugar / liter), and that present high concentration levels whether or not owing to noble rot. “At the plot” checks of production conditions. Natural alcoholic fermentation in tank during two months then maturing one year before bottling.

THE STORY Bonnezeaux
THE BEGINNING OF AN ADVENTURE

This appellation is located on a small parcel of land in a single com- mune on the right bank of the Layon: Thouarcé for Bonnezeaux. The large bend in the Layon River causes morning mists that encourage the development of noble rot. Manual harvests are carried out in multiple passes to selectively pick grapes that are overripe and present high sugar concentration levels, whether or not due to noble rot. Individual inspection of the production and growing conditions for each plot of land is required. The sweet wines of Bonnezeaux have nearly infinite aging potential.
