Produced from vines aged under 50 years, this is what passes for a “young vines” cuvée for Belliviere! 100% Chenin Blanc, grown in clay soils with flint on tuffeau (limestone) and some sand. The grapes are sourced from six parcels located in 3 districts. Natural fermentation in oak: 75% is in 1-3 year old barrels, with the balance in new wood. Aged one year minimum in barrel. The terroirs are separated and barrels are assembled before bottling.

Broad, honeyed aroma with notes of white peach and flowers. Medium bodied with excellent minerality and good length.
