2017 Pierre Menard Clos Des Mailles Anjou Blanc

2017 Pierre Menard Clos Des Mailles Anjou Blanc

This is a blend from all three sections in this vineyard, half from the 25-year old vines, and one-quarter each from the 100-year and 7-year old parcels, of which 80% was vinified in barrel and 20% in vat. It has a completely modern, matchsticky and reductive nose, smoky and schisty, with yellow plum, peach stone and mineral elements. It feels pure, fresh, bright and tense on the palate, with great acidity and mineral veins. Pierre rues the fact it is still carrying 2.5 g/l of residual sugar, but I don't see this at all, the wine a masterclass in modern Chenin, pure, polished, tense, mineral and overall quite beautiful.  95 points, Chris Kissack
