Notes from Vos Selections:

"Originally from the Loire-Atlantic part of France, Coralie and Anthony Rassin worked in various wines regions in France and abroad before settling in the appellation Montlouis – Coralie made wines at Jaboulet and Francois Villard and Anthony worked for Pierre Gonon. They took up the challenge to run their own vineyard and winery and put their experiences to work. In late 2015, they acquired the Montlouis estate, Domaine Flamand Deletang in St Martin Le Beau in its entirety. They renamed it Domaine Les Pierres Ecrites to make a new start while also giving a nod to the prior owner, whose grandfather was a famed archeologist of prehistoric drawings on stones in North Africa.  Their main cuvée was called “Les Pierres Ecrites.” 

About the cuvee:

"100% Chenin Blanc from the Petits Boulay parcel, located in St Martin Le Beau. The vines average 35 year old and are planted on sandy loess and clay soil. The Petits Boulay is the wine obtained from the first picking. The grapes are hand harvested, fermented with indigenous yeasts and aged on the fine lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Unfined. All together soft and mineral, with aromas of pear, quince and white flowers. 13.8% alcohol. Less than 500 cases produced. RS: 4 gr/l."
