Biodynamic. Matthieu has one parcel of Chenin Blanc planted in the “La Cote” area of Saumur. Located 8 kilometers south of Breze and right next to the Loire River, “La Cote” allows Chenin Blanc to develop gorgeous depths of flavor as its terroir of nutrient rich red clay, sand stone and limestone provide exactly what Chenin Blanc needs to achieve full ripeness while maintaining lively acidity. Chateau Yvonne produces 2-3 barrels of Le Gory a year. Matthieu purchases new barrels each year for his Le Gory cuvee. Aged a year longer in bottle than their Yvonne Saumur Blanc, this is one of the most complex and beautiful Loire Chenin Blancs you can find.
TASTE PROFILE:Hand-harvested and aged 12 months in oak/3 months in steel; rich, balanced, and mineral-driven.
