Raised in a mix of old barrels and stainless steel tanks. Bright mid lemon robe. With its well focused initial burst of orchard fruits this is perennially powerful and complex. Particularly successful this vintage. Now-2017
Claude Papin is a master of Chenin Blanc in all its guises from bone dry to lusciously sweet. His focus is to produce wines which truly reflect their individual origins alongside their varietal character. The terroir differences and quality hierarchy are always so clearly defined. Claude’s two sons, René and Christophe, are taking more responsibility, for the cellar and vineyards respectively, and on the evidence of recent vintages the transition to the new generation will ensure the integrity and quality of these complex and diverse wines.
