Domaine Mosse, Chenin Blanc


We have run out of stock for this item.

Domaine Mosse Chenin Blanc is a Vin de France which shows wild honey, fleshy apricots, quince paste and woodspice followed by nutty aromas and layer after layer of rich flavour. This is is a very serious chenin with impeccable balance.

The fruit come from young selection massale Chenin vines planted in 2001 on clay and gravel soils alternating with schist.

The very low yielding grapes are harvested by hand followed by a rigourous selection (tri).

Fermented in vat then transferred into large barrels where malolactic takes place. The wine spends a further year in them before bottling.
