Domaine Sebastien Brunet 'Arpent', Vouvray Sec, Loire Valley, France 2021
Sébastien Brunet was born and raised in Vouvray, and he knows the ins and outs of the land as well as anyone. Since taking over the estate, he became associated with a new generation of Vouvray vignerons who are producing wines in a drier style, and with more natural methods. This is a classic textbook dry Chenin Blanc from Vouvray, full of orchard fruit, bright acidity, chalk and mineral laden. After fermentation the wine spends 5 months on the lees. Aged in barrel for 6 months before bottling.
