Saumur Blanc ‘L’insolite’, Domaine des Roches Neuves, Loire, France 2022
Regular price £33.45
A pure and most exciting expression of Chenin Blanc. There are fleshy, ripe orchard fruits and white florals on the nose, underpinned by a saline accent. On the palate, intense jolt of citrus-charged flesh entwined with smoky reduction and a more salty bite.White Organic Chenin Blanc
