2016 Thierry Germain Cep by Cep Anjou Blanc
Loire Valley, France
Vineyard/Year: Thierry Germain / 2016
Being poured at: City Wine Shop
This wine comes from 100% hand harvested Chenin Blanc, organically grown on stony clay over schist of Rochefort-sur-Loire, just south of the river opposite Savennières.
Unlike the Germain vineyards in Saumur, where limestone dominates the vineyards of western Anjou are influenced by the schist rich, volcanic soils of the Massif armoricain. It’s this type of rock that imparts a pungent, stony bite to the dry Chenin of the area.
