An icon that’s just sweet enough–
The Les Pechers by Ludo Chanson is a demi-sec Chenin Blanc with 17 grams of residual sugar from a kiss of botrytis on the grapes. Ludo says the botrytis gives an extra depth and level of layers to Les Pechers. There’s still a savory quality to this wine, which balances out that extra fruitiness. An elegant classic.
- Ludovic Chanson’s primary aim is to produce minimal intervention white wines out of the Loire Valley.
- He left his job in pharmaceutical research in 2007 and worked for the renowned Vouvray producer, Vincent Carême prior to making his inaugural vintage in 2009.
- The Chenin vines thrive on a mixture of soil and heavy clay with a deep limestone base.
