Domaine Sérol ‘Champtoisé’ Chenin Blanc 2021
This product is currently sold out.
Pear drops, lemon flower/pith and squeaky lime skin are amongst the aromatics. White nectarine and deeper orchard fruit shades float on sleek acidity, expanded by the hidden breath of large format oak. Salty minerals sparkle through the whole thing. This is a singular, high altitude Loire Chenin Blanc. Hugely limited, be quick.
