2020 Domaine Mosse La Joute09687
WINEMAKER: Agnès, René, Sylvestre & Joseph Mosse
VARIETAL: Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay
REGION: Loire Valley, FR
"La Joute is a new wine for the Mosse family. It is a blend of Chardonnay (20%) and Chenin Blanc (80%) and actually shows up the best of each variety. The grapes have been sourced from their own vines for this wine. Following crushing and fermentation the juice was placed in used barriques for 10 months until it was ready for bottling.
The Chardonnay provides freshness and acidity and the Chenin Blanc provides the characteristics that we have come to expect from a Mosse wine that uses Chenin Blanc. It has freshness, it is dry and it has that gorgeous texture that all the Mosse white wines display and that lingering Chenin aftertaste that is just so-o-o Mosse!" - 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.
