About Les Terres Blanches Ancestral Brut Natural
Les Terres Blanches Ancestral Brut Natural is 100% Chenin Blanc from low-yielding vines in soils of sandy clay, quartz, and limestone. The initial fermentation is in underground cement vats, without SO2, finishing at 22 – 23 gr/liter of sugar. The fermentation in the bottle finishes quite dry and there is no dosage at disgorgement. This is a wonderfully elegant and crystalline Pet Nat showing lovely subtle aromas of pear, peach, and grapefruit, with beautiful chalky, stony acidity and terrific length. Just delicious!
About Les Terres Blanches
In May 2004, Céline and Benoit Blet took over the 8.5-hectare domaine of bernard coutel, who was retiring and had no family members to follow in his footsteps . The vineyards were located in the village of Oiron which the prince of gastronomes cited as an “area of great white wines of Chenin”.
Certified organic, the wines are carefully and meticulously made by Celine and Benoit. certified organic since 2010, the domaine produces about 4,000cs of mono-varietal cuvées which are the expression of the varietal in the terroir. half of the domaine is planted in Chenin Blanc; the other half is in Gamay and Cabernet Franc. The soil is clay, sand, and silex.
