A fresh white wine with complex aromas of yellow and dried fruits. On the palate there’s yellow apple, peach and apricot with background hints of smoke and toast.
Xavière Hardy is a tough, determined woman who makes amazing juice while leaving as little mark on the land as possible. Tired of her previous career in river ecology, Xaviere planted 1.5 hectare of vines 60km north of Nantes in an area not previously permitted for vine cultivation. She is the only winemaker for miles around. Her first vintage was 2015. The vines are Albarello ‘pole’ trained, planted on blue shist, farmed with biodynamic treatments and herbal remedies, no sulphur used in the vineyard or the winery. Exciting pure wines in tiny quantities from somewhere you have never heard of.
