Biodynamic. 100% Chenin Blanc. This wines comes from a single parcel of Chenin, planted in 1958 in Faye d’Anjou, the neighboring village of Rablay. The Clos des Cocus terroir is the summit of a hillside (southwest) very exposed to winds. The soil is 20-40 cm of clay on schist. On the surface there is volcanic rock, some spilites and rhyolites.The juice is vinified in the same way as l’Esprit Libre, but in 500L barrels. These barrels are used, 2-3 years old (no new barrels). Naturally occurring fermentation (primary and malo). No additions until small amounts (1-2 grams) of sulfur at bottling. 100 cases produced.
