2019 Thibaud Boudignon Anjou Blanc
Loire Valley, France
Thibaud Boudignon is one of the most exciting figures in French wine today- his biodynamically farmed wines have garnered him immense, and worthy, praise, even though he only has 3.5 hectares of land. This 100%Chenin Blanc comes from 35 year old vines on volcanic schist soils. Fermented with only native yeasts and aged in various sizes of oak barrels (15% new), this is mouthwatering Chenin at its best, with lots of juicy green apple, pear and stoney minerality. Just so pure and balanced!
