2019 Mark Angeli 'les Fouchardes' Chenin Blanc - ANJOU, FRANCE. 750ml


The Fouchardes vineyard is a small, 0.5 ha vineyard, mid-slope on La Montagne, one of the three hills of Bonnezeaux.  It is a very rare, complex mix of deep red sands and clay over schistes gréseux, with two very distinct areas : the top has more carboniferous schist leading to an earlier picking, while the bottom with heavier clay is harvested ten days later. Often very aromatic, this cuvée is the one needing the most time to get its textural definition (5 years or so are often necessary).
