2016 Anjou Blanc "A Francois(e)" Thibaud Boudignon

Thibaud Boudignon has been producing rich, mineral-driven wines in Savennieres since 2008 but only recently began making wines under his own name. He has been the maître de chai for Château Soucherie since 2008, leading the estate to 100% organic viticulture. It is his love of expressive Chenin Blanc that led him to renovate a small cellar on the outskirts of Savennieres to make his own wines, working around 3.5 ha of vines on shallow soils of grey schist, volcanic soil and sand. He has been crafting wines with intense focus, shimmering acidity, rich texture and purity of fruit .

Emmanuel is the driving force with unrelenting passion and dedication to the vines; Fredrick is the more reserved thoughtful type. Their methods put emphasis on manual labor and tending each vine, where ploughing and green harvesting are done with utmost care.

2016 Corbieres "Rozeta" Maxime Magnon

"Most of Maxime’s vineyard land is comprised of schist and limestone subsoils in the sub-appellation Hautes Corbieres, bordering Fitou to the South. This is incredibly tough terrain to farm in, as there is virtually no top-soil, just pure rock and garrigue. The “Rozeta” is a blend of these two district terroirs. This blend is particularly unique, from Carignan vineyards that are dispersed with numerous varietals of older vines, namely Grenache Gris, Macabou, and Terret, which are all picked and fermented together—a true field blend of the old school." -- importer Kermit Lynch
