Details

Domaine Delétang was run by Olivier Delétang, the fourth generation of the Delétang family to take control of his 20 hectares of vines, but was recently bought by our man Aynard at the Clos du Porteau. The Delétang vineyards are sited on differing terroirs, both stony flint and limestone, in the Montlouis appellation. This lies on the left bank of the Loire, just a little upstream of Vouvray, which lies on the right bank.

100% Chenin Blanc is behind this incredible white, but not just any Chenin Blanc. This is made without chaptalizaton and without added yeast, and grapes are harvested by hand with successive 'tris' through the vineyard to pick only the ripest, healthiest of bunches. A long, cool fermentation results in amazing balance between natural sweetness and tangy acidity, with layers of fruit flavours ranging from apple to pear to quince to something hard to identify but impossible to resist. A big wine, that suits the cheeses of the Loire valley to a tee!
