The Mosse family is making superb natural wines in Anjou, and the 2017 Vin de France Rouchefer is a classic example. From a 1.6 ha parcel of massale selection vines in soils of clay and quartz over schistes, the wine is produced with minimal SO2 (total 20mg/l) and is aged in barrel. The  wine shows beautiful floral aromas of quince, pear, citrus and stone. The palate is full and elegant without being heavy, and the lovely fruit is backed by firm acidity and mineral flavors  - a real Chenin of terroir that will accompany a wide range of seafood and chicken dishes and mild cheeses. Serve cool, but not too cold, over the next ten to fifteen years.
