Les Volets Chenin Blanc 75cl

£8.50
Country: FranceSuggested Food Pairing: Chicken

Les Volets Chenin blanc is bright, citrussy and herbal. This leads to a densely fruity, peachy palate with great texture and a clean, lifted finish.

The Chenin Blanc grape variety originally hails from the Loire Valley. It was then planted near Limoux in the Haute Vallée de L’Aude. Here in the south, where importantly it is planted at altitude. The cooler, abrupt hillside slopes of clay and limestone in the foothills of the Pyrenees. One of the latest varieties to be picked, achieving full ripeness yet retaining a refreshing crispness. This ripe yet crunchy fruit gives this wine its freshness, vigour and spine as well as its luscious texture. It is further complemented and enriched from partial vinification. Maturation is in a combination of new and seasoned French oak.

Wonderful with warmly spiced dishes - Thai red curries and aromatic rice, spicy mango salads or even a fruity chicken tagine.
