Details

Anjou Blanc BB Rene Mosse 2015, biodynamic wine, barrel fermented and aged, malolactic, rich honey and creamy texture. The Bonnes Blanches is a 2.5 ha parcel of thirty-five year old vines on a special terroir of sandstone with a subsoil of decomposed schists. Ample, mineral, long in the mouth this wine has profound texture. Honeydew melon and sweet quince, candied apple, vanilla and gorgeous pineapple acidity. Delicious natural Chenin Blanc.




Agnès and René Mosse live and work in the village of Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay, Anjou, which is beside one of the Loire's tributaries, the Layon. Here, long, foggy mornings are perfect for botrytis to develop. Before becoming winemakers, they owned a wine bar in Tours where they met a number of esteemed winemakers who gave them the inspiration to start a winery of their own. After studying viticulture and oenology in Amboise under Thierry Puzelat (Clos du Tue Boeuf) and Christian Chaussard (Domaine le Briseau), they bought the estate in St-Lambert in 1999. On their 13 hectare vineyard, 9 are planted with Chenin blanc. 3 with Cabernet franc and Cabernet Sauvignon, and the rest is planted with Gamay, Chardonnay, Grolleau Gris and Noir. From the word go they worked the fields organically, using biodynamic preparations to treat the vines and soil. The soils are shallow, with subsoil of schist and sandstone, and varying amounts of clay on the surface.
