Mai & Kenji have made a name for themselves for producing rare and expressive wines from 4 hectares of vines they took on in Anjou after a journey that started at a Japanese winery Kenji was interning at, via Vancouver (Kenji's home and where he and Mai met) then to the Loire where they impulsively bought land and set about establishing themselves. Over a relatively short period of time they have begun to produce distinctive wines of great quality, although they themselves admit they are still learning to understand the potential of the land they work on. P'tit Luchini is their entry-level Chenin Blanc and is a blend of two different cuvées from 2015 and 2017 (Le Quart des Noels and Les Aussigouins for those taking notes). What is lost in terms of expression of vintage is gained in pure 'vin de soif' drinkability - a delicious Loire Chenin for the table. Limited quantities!
