Domaine de l'Ecu, 'Matris' Chenin Blanc

Write a Review

Vintage: 2020

Varietals: Chenin Blanc

Farming: Organic/Biodynamic, Unfined/Unfiltered, No added SO2

A complex and powerful Chenin with real energy and focus. Rich and layered. Loads of primary flavors and honey. Yellow apples, quince, chamomile, sweet nectar and rich brandy. Matris means "mother" in latin -- a lovely nod to the pedigree of the Chenin grape in Orthogneiss terroirs.

VINIFICATION: Indigenous yeast fermentation, no temperature control

AGING: Aged 10-12 months on the lees in amphora. Nofining, no filtration, no sulfur...just pur chenin!
