Song of the Cormier Chenin

A lively and complex wine from one of our most beautiful plots of land.

This cuvée elegantly retranscribes a terroir of character, through a beautiful liveliness and a good length in the mouth. It reveals aromas of pears, apples and a slight woody note, carried by a straight and elegant structure.


The plot is right next to our Cabernet Sauvignon which gives the cuvée of the same name. And like the latter, Chant du Cormier en Chenin is a wine revealing a lot of character. The terroir gave it a nice acidity, making it lively and typical. Its aromatic complexity and beautiful structure made us want to mature it in Burgundy barrels of 4 to 5 wines, giving it a light woodiness and a lot of depth.
