2019 Mosse 'Bonne Blanches' Chenin Blanc (MAGNUM)
This wine is produced within the Anjou appellation but is intentionally declassified as VDF. Les Bonnes Blanches is a sector of vines widely considered to be the top terroir in the area. It’s location is geologically ideal to the Layon river, and it’s one of the rare vineyards that can produce an excellent Coteaux-du-Layon every year. The Mosse intentionally harvest earlier to produce dry whites. The soils are composed of shallow decomposing schist and quartz on schist rock, so the roots of the vineyards' 40 year old vines can get exceptionally deep, providing an unparalleled amount of minerality in the wine. Slow pressed grapes are fermented and aged in old Burgundian barrels. 20mg per liter of sulfur added at bottling.
