Thierry Hensault "La Fosse Vineuse" 2018
Thierry farms from century old vines (with the exception of 50 year old hybrid varieties). He treats his 3 hectares of vineyards with care and when it comes to making wine, there is no rush. This Chenin Blanc has a long fermentation which gives it toasty and smokey qualities. Slight oxidation is what makes these wines special. He hales from Chahaignes, which is in the northern Loire Valley.
