La Garreliere Chenin De La Colline

$31.33

Located near the small town of Richelieu, in the most Southern part of the AOC Touraine (as a matter of fact, the village is separated from the main AOC), lies Domaine de la Garrelière. The Plouzeau family acquired the estate in 1973 and replanted vines. Pascale and Francois took over in 1985 and fully converted the now 50 acres to biodynamic farming. Francois likes to pick ripe and often harvests (by hand) in October and has the lightest touch with Sulphur. His terroir is mostly clay and limestone terroirs mixed with sandy soils and rocks. The unique labels produced by local artists that reflect the naming of the wine.

“This wine is made from a 3.2ha plot of 30+-year-old Chenin Blanc planted on aeolian sand over silex. This wine was made as an ode to the south-facing slope they find their vineyard on and all the equinox parties they’ve thrown on top of it. They take three passes through this vineyard to harvest each bunch at optimal ripeness. The wine ferments for several weeks in concrete tank before élevage, a light filtration, and bottling. 13.5% ABV” – Erik Mercier, Juice Imports
