Product Description


Producer Note: These were Chenin Blanc wines of the highest class, made by a jovial man regarded as a statesman of Montlouis. This appellation, just across the river from Vouvray, is enjoying a period of resurgence, after being buried in its illustrious neighbour’s shadow for many years. Such classically poised expressions of the terroir as these make it easy to understand why. Rigorously hand-harvested and separated by trie, fermented long and cold with native yeasts, and minimally treated with sulphur, these are cool and expressive wines. Sadly, this will be the last vintage of this singular domaine, as Olivier has retired from the fray and sold to a neighbor. Enjoy them while you can. 

Tasting Note: Those who follow the happenings of Montlouis know that it is an appellation in ferment. There are newcomers aplenty attempting to recreate the wheel. But Deletang quietly went about his business, dependably producing the classics against which everything else can be measured. If you like Chenin Blanc rendered clean, aromatic, unencumbered with wood, free of malolactic fermentation, comfortable in its skin and built for the ages, please look no further. This wine is as close to textbook as can be imagined.
