L'Echalier 2011

Chenin Blanc from lieux-dit L’Echalier in Rablay-sur-Layon.  Half raised in steel, half in barrel, 1/3 new.  Organic/BIO.

Josh Adler and T. Elenteny Imports, New York NY.

Five years on.

Lemon yellow.  She’s Chenin cut to vinyl and the honesty goes without saying, tang and earth and honey.  Just off-dry, she’s up with the morning sun, a crackling wine with transparency and reserve.  Leave it all behind, she says with a winsome smile, and come out to the country where it is quiet.  Now.
