The Ithybole Chenin Blanc is 100% estate-grown fruit, fermented and aged in tank, with just a bit of sulfur added at bottling. A beautifully textured expression of Chenin, with pristine minerality that cuts like glass. This wine is one of the many curated offerings from Domaine de Montrieux, based within the Loire’s Côteaux du Vendômois.
