100% Chenin Blanc from two parcels (1.5 ha) situated on the Cerisaie hill, a short walk from the domaine, based in Le Puy Notre Dame. The vines are southeast-facing, on chalky Tuffeau soils with Turonian bedrock. Planted in 2005 and 2012. Vinification:Pneumatic pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation in stainless steel tank, no malo, aged 6 months in stainless steel, lightly filtered.
Thibault Masse took over Domaine de la Renière in 2018, along with partner, Guillaume Poitevin. He chose this domain because he is a lover of Chenin and in Puy-Notre-Dame, he was eager to work this variety, grown on tuffeau-chalk to express it’s unique identity. This limestone rock, characteristic of the region, is rich in trace elements and provides a regular water supply for the vines. Additionally, he was inspired by the winegrower community that is building in Puy-Notre-Dame and regularly exchanges ideas and equipment with his neighbors.
