Vanessa Cherruau is among the new wave of dynamic young vignerons fashioning perfumed and textural dry Chenin Blancs in a region with a long history of sweet winemaking. Vanessa has taken over Château de Plaisance from Guy Rochais – a biodynamic grower who controversially pioneered the production of dry wine from his ancient Quarts de Chaume vineyards, which have been farmed organically since 1995 and biodynamically since 2008. Combining a satin texture with precise lemon and peach flavours and a taut, bone-dry palate, this has real finesse. 100% dry Chenin from the Butte de Chaume. Partially aged in barrels for 12 months. Soils of schale, spilite, sandstone. It is a full-bodied and incisive wine, with great minerality.
