Easily my favourite Chenin Blanc producer. Bar none. No words would do it justice except to explain where it's from and how it was made (see below). Unbelievable! - Chris L


The Le Rouchefer is a pure Chenin Blanc that comes from a small parcel of gently sloping, southwest facing land that extends over 1.66 hectares with clay and gravel (studded with quartz) sitting on schist. The yield from this vineyard is very low with 20 hectolitres per hectare being common. The grapes are hand harvested and meticulously sorted before slow pressing and then being allowed to go through both alcoholic and malolactic fermentation. The wine is aged in old barrels for 12 months. There is a tiny bit of residual sugar in this wine which adds to its charm. This is a complex and elegant wine that matches beautifully to a range of foods including grilled fish, sweetbreads, chicken and mountain cheeses. - Importer Note

Importer Note:

When we first visited the Loire Valley in 2008 the was one domaine that constantly appeared on the wines lists of natural wine bars and restaurants with good wine lists – this was Domaine Mosse. People praised the wines, clearly had immense affection for Agnès and René Mosse, and also talked about the influence they’d had on other wine makers who’d worked with them to gain experience and then started making their own wines.

Since then we have got to know Agnès and René and to know more about  their wines. We have found that they not only turn out excellent red wines but their white wines made from Chenin Blanc are seriously good wines as well.

Their vineyards at Saint Lambert du Lattay are immaculately maintained and we have a particular affection for the Bonne Blanches vineyard which is where their oldest Chenin Blanc vines are to be found.
