One sip of this wine and you can almost taste the quartz and schist in the vineyards that this cuvée was made from. During this vintage the Mosse vineyards suffered significant damage from hail, so this cuvée is a blend of grapes picked from three of their best vineyards – Les Bonnes Blanches, Marie Besnard et Le Rouchefer which is where the three parts of the name come from.
The fermentation was carried out with wild yeasts as always and the malolactic fermentation was also natural. The wine was matured in barrels that had been used for two years previously and reamined there for 12 months before bottling.
It is a characteristic Mosse Chenin with that tell-tale signature aroma and taste made even better for the grapes coming from such excellent vines.
