One of the most brilliant Chenin Blanc you will come across. Charpentrie is a single vineyard, old vine site (100+ year old) planted on limestone in the sub-region of Breze in Saumur (Loire Valley). This terroir produces a wine of concentration, layers and minerality. Marvellous. - Chris L

Details

While the reputation of Clos Rougeard was built primarily on age-worthy Cabernet Francs from Saumur-Champigny, the identity of Domaine du Collier is rooted in the grand whites of Chenin Blanc from the limestone-rich hillsides of Brézé in neighboring Saumur.

Two-thirds of the estate is planted to Chenin, most of which are old vines and some approaching 100 years of age. The remaining third is planted to Cabernet Franc in the important lieu-dits of 'La Ripaille' and 'La Charpentrie'.  

Antoine practices Bio dynamics and the harvest is manual with strict sorting carried out in the vineyards. In his deep cellar, Antoine is very observant but lets nature take it's course, he uses a very modest dose of sulfur before the bottling.

The wines are aged in a combination of seasoned barrels and foudre for anywhere between 24 and 36 months before release. The cellar is actually part of Clos Rougeard which is renowned for being very cold and this protects the wines in élevage and I think goes some way to explaining the glacial development of the wines in bottle.
