From vines aged well over 100 years in the Charpentrie vineyard. These are vines that were destined to be pulled out before Antoine purchased them. Stunning density and complexity. A step up in weight from the straight Saumur Blanc, this shows deeper peach and apricot notes with classic Chenin wooliness. The palate is dense and rich with brilliant acidity; this is wonderful with a few hours of air, but will really blossom with some time in the cellar.
