Vieilles Vignes Éparses (Sparse Old Vines) is 100% Chenin Blanc, vinified dry to medium-dry.  Sourced from vines aged 50-80 years from several parcels in several parishes. The soils are clay with flint on tuffeau (limestone). Maximum yields 25 hl/ha. Natural fermentation in 75% 1-3 year old barrels, with the balance in new oak; aging one year minimum in barrel. The terroirs are vinified separately, and barrels are assembled before bottling to produce the cuvée.
