Cut like a diamond with clean lines and explosive fruit. Long detailed finish that fans out with a touch of creaminess. Still evolving and will reward the one who has patience. A worthy homage to his mother and grandfather.
With a tight core of saline terroir enveloped within ripe medium bodied fruit, this chenin blanc delivers a focused example of Thibaud’s style of ripe fruit matched with elegance and precision.
This is from all of his Chenin vines not in Charpentrie. Predominantly in and around the Ripaille site. Vines aged 25 to 75 years. Generally this wine is a little less dense than the Charpentrie. Slightly more ethereal and less powerful.
