La Grange Tiphaine 'Les Epinays', Montlouis-Sur-Loire, France 2018
Damien Tiphaine is a third generation enologist in Montlouis-Sur-Loire, bringing precision to natural winemaking and using as few additives as possible, his goal is to evoke the precious terroir in its purest sense. In 2016, Damien was honored to follow the footsteps of his idol, François Chidaine, and take the lead of the appellation by becoming it's current president. And like Chidaine, Damien is a winemaker to follow, his wines beautifully express the region in both whites and reds. Les Epinays Chenin Blanc is made from vines on a separate parcel of vines, so Damien vinifies this wine separately to showcase this special vineyard.
