Chenin Blanc
Fermented with native yeasts, unfiltered & unfined, no additional sulphites.

Jean-Pierre is something of a notorious character in the world of wine due to his idiosyncratic methods and seemingly boundless energy. You see his table getting mobbed at wine fairs every time without fail, pouring bottle after bottle into expectant glasses until there isn't a drop left. Here’s a good introduction to his particular style of Chenin Blanc. Aged in old oak barrels on lees for one year to soften the acidity; the fruit is tense but ripe, grapefruit and juicy green and red apple with that Breton cider-y oxidative twang and that reedy note of Chenin from this area. It coats the mouth with rich, intense juice and the finish is long. Absolutely no additions at any point in the process from vine to bottle - a true natural wine from an infamous producer. Get acquainted.
