Appellation: AOC Chinon
Grape Variety: 100% Chenin Blanc
The Chenin Blanc by Fred Sigonneau is not marketed under the name Domaine de L'R, as the grapes were purchased by winegrower colleagues. In 2018 that will change, since the Chenin sticks planted by Fred come into the crop. However, the quality of the Chenin is already beyond reproach, the wine has tension and density, is exuberant in the flavors and endowed with a beautiful long finish. A wonderful wine in the style of a Saumur blanc!
Lovely medium gold with a hint of viscosity. The nose carries medium intensity which slowly develops with hints of lemon. This high acidity Chenin Blanc has tension and density, is exuberant in the flavors and endowed with a beautiful long dry finish. Notes of honeysuckle, orange peel, ripe pear, sultana, dried apple, earth makes this a wonderful wine in the style of a Saumur blanc! This is a well structured white which tastes good now or to keep.
