2019 Domaine Mosse Le Rouchefer09661
WINEMAKER: Agnès, René, Sylvestre & Joseph Mosse
VARIETAL: Chenin Blanc
REGION: Loire Valley, FR
"The Le Rouchefer is a pure Chenin Blanc that comes from a small parcel of gently sloping, southwest facing land that extends over 1.66 hectares with clay and gravel (studded with quartz) sitting on schist. The yield from this vineyard is very low with 20 hectolitres per hectare being common.
The grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted before slow pressing and then being allowed to go through both alcoholic and spontaneous malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in old barrels for 12 months. There is a tiny bit of residual sugar in this wine which adds to its charm." - Living Wines
Founded in 1999, Domaine Mosse has gathered a serious cult following. Started by Agnès and René, now run by their sons Sylvestre and Joseph, the family tend to their 17 hectares of pristine vineyards in Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay according to organic and biodynamic principles. We're always grateful to receive small quantities of these highly sought-after wines.
