Domaine des Grandes Espérances Aurore Chenin Blanc 2020
Pure Chenin Blanc is something to behold. This iteration of the celebrated Loire Valley variety is bright in florals and white stone fruit. The palate is generous and textural, and finishes with mineral tautness. Hand harvested, organic fruit is given 12 hours of skin macerations and fermented in French oak.
The expressive wines of the ‘domaine of great expectations’ will exceed yours. From 24 hectares in Touraine in the Loire Valley, Arnaud and Laurent Saget have converted this estate to organics, and produce a wide range of charming, lively wine styles.
