Chenin on Schist terroir in Montbenault (Faye d'Anjou) [right next to Richard Leroy n.b.]. 40 year old vines, aged on lees in barrel. Kenji: 70% aged in barrel one year, the remainder in tank. Blended September 2018. After a long journey we finally see the pure minerality and freshness of the wine. Ideally one would wait at least 6 months more (aging potential is 10+ years) but it's tasting fine even now. 17 is proving to be a very good vintage in general..
