Variety(ies): Chenin Blanc
An older vine cuvee than the Arpent. Still made in a dry (or sec) style but in this case from 40 and 50 year old vines where the soils have more limestone and clay. The wine ferments in barrel and then continues to age in barrel as well. In 2015 there is superb ripeness and a healthy streak of acidity to balance it out. Some wooliness and a chalky note also lend complexity to this wine. This is a finesse wine that has beautiful floral and fruit notes but an underlying tension to it that keeps it lively and expressive. This may have great longevity than the '14 Arpent but again it is drinking very well right now.
