Vin de France Blanc Rene Mosse 2017, biodynamic wine, natural, rich, layered, honeyed Chenin blanc. The Mosse Blanc sec is from young selection massale Chenin vines planted in 2001 & 2002 grown on clay and gravel soils alternating with schist. Yields in this vintage were less than 15hl/ha and harvest was done by hand with selection (tri) of grapes. Vinification is slow, malo takes place in barrels and the wine spends a further year in them before bottling. Wild honey, fleshy apricots, quince paste and woodspice. Once the wine warmed up in the glass it developed secondary nutty aromatics and layer after layer of rich flavour.Anjou Blanc has a delicious wild honey, fleshy apricots, quince paste and wood spice tastes. Once the wine warmed up in the glass, it develops secondary nutty aromatics and layer after layer of rich flavour. All their wines are barrel-fermented and aged, and usually the whites go through their malolactic fermentation. The barrels are renewed as needed: they are containers, not oak flavour providers.




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 subsoils of schist and sandstone, and varying amounts of clay on the surface.
