Chenin Blanc is a perfect grape variety for producing sweeter styles of wine. The Tendre that Vincent makes is a semi-sweet wine that is perfect for pairing with desserts or cheese. This one, however, is a fully sweet style.
“Trie” refers to sorting and for this wine Vincent selects only the most concentrated grapes, picking several times and only picking bunches with at least 30% botrytis. It has 100g of residual sugar and tastes like quinces. It’s a wine that should age for many years, but is also drinking beautifully already.
It is a very good wine for restaurants as it can be poured by the glass and lasts for ages after the bottle has been opened.
