La Lisse Soie d’Ivoire Chenin Blanc, Pays de la Haute Vallee de l’Aude (6 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
La Lisse Soie d'Ivoire Chenin Blanc is a bright, lemony and densely fruity ensemble which has a long-lasting and thought-provoking finish, smooth (‘lisse’) as silk (‘soie’). The Chenin Blanc grape variety originally hails from the Loire Valley before it was planted near Limoux in the Haute Vallée de L’Aude. Here in the south, but importantly planted at altitude on the cooler, abrupt hillside slopes of clay and limestone in the foothills of the Pyrenees, it is one of the latest to be picked, achieving full ripeness yet retaining a refreshing crispness. This ripe yet crunchy fruit gives this wine its freshness, vigour and spine and at the same time its luscious texture which is further complemented and enriched from one third vinified and matured for nine months in seasoned French oak. Hints of caramel and brioche lead to a densely fruity peach palate with great texture and a clean, lifted finish. A great partner to grilled fish, chicken and salads. Wonderful with Cape Malay curries, spicy mango salads and brightly flavoured pan-Asian cuisine.
