A rich, intense white wine with good body while retaining its freshness and a magnificent finish. A stunning blend of biodynamic Vermentino and Chenin, this white is produced from a poor, stony, clay-limestone soil. During vinification, fermentation is done in stainless steel vats and élevage lasts 36 months, of which 12 in French oak barrels. Alain Chabanon also produces a wonderfully French and unctuous white wine with notes of fresh fruits, quince, citrus fruits and honeysuckle.
Alain studied agriculture in Bordeaux and Montpellier and then worked for two years for Alain Brumont, the iconic man behind the revival of Madiran. He bought vineyards in the late 80s and released his first wine in 1992. Now with 17 hectares on 5 villages, Alain aims to make exceptional wines of true personality. His wines age beautifully and are celebrated around the world.
