Château de Bois-Brinçon 2016 Anjou Blanc Blaison "Terre de Grès"
The Terre de Grès of Château de Bois-Brinçon represents 1.5 hectares of chenin grown on chalky, tuffeau soils. With only 6,000 vines per hectare, yields are consistently small averaging 40 hectoliters per hectare. The grapes are picked by hand and rigorously sorted, whereby all botrytised grapes are eschewed. Whole bunches undergo a slow and gentle pressing (between 8 and 10 hours), after which fermentation occurs in neutral barrels. The wine remains in barrel for 5 months receiving batonnage when necessary.
The aromatic finesse of chenin is highlighted in the Terre de Grès, where its minerality and freshness gain complexity and intensify over time.
