Natural fermentation, aged half in stainless steel, and half in barrel (⅓ new). After a year, the tank and barrel lots are assembled and let to rest for 6 months before bottling. Nicolas says he just wants to just wants to do things simply. Funny how the wine that comes from doing things simply tastes pretty complex. Chenin Blanc from Rablay-sur-Layon is historically a sweet wine, but they prefer to drink dry wines, and wanted to make something they could enjoy every day. This has some of the same pear and honey flavors of the sweet wines from Coteaux-du-Layon, but it's definitely a vin sec, something to drink all the time.
