Always such a delicious wine. Super complex Chenin Blanc from this iconic estate. A blend of grapes from Anjou and Savennieres (in Anjou but a seperate wine region).

A crisp Chenin in a slightly oxidative style. Orchard fruits, apple pie, quince paste and spiced honey. Yep. Super delicious and damn rare.

ABOUT THE PRODUCER

Domaine Mosse, located in Saint-Lambert du Lattay in the Loire, has been producing quality wines since their foundation by Agnès and René Mosse in the late 90’s. Their 15 hectares of vines have been certified organic since 1999 and spread across the communes of Saint Lambert du Lattay, Savennières and Beaulieu sur Layon in the appellation areas of Anjou Villages and Coteaux du Layon Villages. The vines are impeccably maintained - likely a result of how much time the couple spend working with the soils. They’re committed to practices that reveal the beautiful schist, quartz, flint and clay terroir in their wines, and it shows.

Agnès and René grow many typical Loire varieties including Chenin, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau gris, Grolleau noir, Côt and Gamay, turning out excellent red, white and blended wines. Their Chenin Blanc is pivotal. Minimal intervention is key to the winemaking, with ageing in barrels or tuns (large wine casks holding just over 950L), and all natural fermentations. Word has it that many winemakers who’ve worked with the couple for experience have been inspired and are now making their own wines, including their sons, Sylvestre and Joseph. Investing the same care for the entire winemaking process, the Mosse brothers started their independent winemaking journey in 2006 and returned to Domaine Mosse to continue the family legacy in 2019.
