More About This Wine

Straw yellow color with green reflection.

The nose is of all baked quince, ripe pineapple and white flowers, notes of citrus fruits arrive in the end.

On the mouth it feels lush, the maturity of the fruit is certainly there, though this chenin is completely dry. A wine full of energy and character. Ready to drink now, but will develop further within the next 5 years.

Serve between 6/8C

Hows it's made

Manoir de la Tete Rouge’s 10 hectares of vines are planted on one of the best clay-limestone site of the Saumure region.

The domain has worked organically since 1998. Since 2010 they have also received the biodynamic certification.

The grapes are placed in the pneumatic press for a slow pressing of 4 hours. The fermentation is done in concrete tanks from November to May.

No sulfur is added during the vinification until bottling.
