Renaud Guettier is the man responsible for some of our favourite Chenin Blanc and this one-off is one of his very best. Like many in the Loire, 2016 was a horrible year for the man and he was only able to harvest enough fruit to make five barrels of white. He blended that with a barrel of noble rot Chenin from 2015 and another from 2017 to make this killer wine. A rich, dense and complex example of one of our favourite grapes.

Renaud Guettier is a quietly spoken, humble man, who just happens to make some of the best wines in all of France. His vineyards consist of very old vines planted over an incredible terroir of clay, limestone and silex right up at the top of the Loire. His wines are intensely mineral, razor sharp and can age forever. Our kind of wines.
