WIth Malbec vines averaging 80 years of age (and some 125!), winemaker Xavier Weisskopf has great raw material to work with. Organic farming and patient aging in older barrels brings out the unique terroir signature of Montlouis, something we rarely get to experience in red wine.

Super funky nose. Palate reveals awesome dark fruit, clay and spice.

Great sour tang that sticks and goes and goes.

I love Chenin blanc. The depth and complexity, the invigorating acidity that it is capable of is only rivalled by Riesling in my opinion. Fortunately for wine lovers, the general public just does not seem to get these wines, meaning that they are some of the best bargains you can find. This is entry level, but terrific. Floral notes and autumn fruit on the nose, a creamy sensation on the palate without losing an energetic freshness towards the end. Just really nice and harmonious.

A little shy at first, needs a lot of air. Utterly gorgeous the next day.
