From the finest raw material.
Ludo Chanson said the 2019 "Implicite" was made from,"the most beautiful grapes you can pick." We'll take his word for it. This 100% Chenin Blanc from old vines grown in the Loire is a knockout. Spontaneously fermented in neutral oak with a long élevage, yielding a powerful and ageworthy Chenin. Ludo considers this his “vin de garde,” but we think you could drink it now. So what’s one to do? Buy two, maybe?
- 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.
