Le Petit Chemin, Loire, Chenin Blanc |White Wine|France|
Petit Chemin is a petite chenin - a charming and well rounded Chenin Blanc from a 60+ year old vineyard on schist with volcanic debris. By no means a simple wine, it's nonetheless a great introduction to Beni's lineup, and to the character that Chenin Blanc takes from schist soils. Crunchy and mineral, but in a vintage like 2017 (with plenty of sun and warmth), also ripe enough to please a less acid-prone palate. Dry, but not too sharp, with some subtle viscosity in the finish. Petit Chemin is a real treat, and will pair perfectly with any of the holiday feasts that are approaching!
