Chenin Blanc from a Loire legend.
Thibaud Boudignon’s Anjou Blanc from the Loire Valley is composed of 100% Organic and Biodynamically farmed Chenin Blanc from the Anjou. A racy wine with beautiful acid and structure imparted from schist soils. No malolactic fermentation occurs during vinification, and the wine is aged in 500 liter barrels - 20% of which are new.
- Made from his finest plots in Anjou. The wine is named after his late mother, who tragically passed away from cancer when Thibaud was 17 years old. He makes this wine in her honor, without any compromise. If he feels the wine does not live up to his mother’s name, he won’t make it.
- Thibaud Boudignon is originally from Bordeaux, and spent some time working at Château Olivier and Château Lafite Rothschild prior to working under Philippe Charlopin in the Côte de Nuits.
- In the vineyard, Thibaud practices biodynamic viticulture; no vinification decisions are made until all the fruit is harvested.
- Thibaud has 7 hectares of vines - 5 hectares in Savennières and 2 hectares in Anjou.
