"Fabrice & Lauré Chaillou have been farming vineyards with organic and biodynamic practices and making wine since they met at viticulture school in 1995. Since 2016, the pair have been based in the small town of Saint-Lambert-du-Lattay in the Val-du-Layon where they have been slowly acquiring old abandoned or poorly managed vineyards that with a little love and good farming, not only return to life but prosper. This is Chenin Blanc from a small low-yielding vineyard that is over 100 years old. Direct pressed for fermentation and aged in fibreglass tanks for just under two years. Generous and giving fruit character from what was an unexpectedly warm year. The wine has such a beautiful richness but Is also balanced, with crisp acidity."

Everything they said.

But, like - really.
