La Varenne de Combre is a dry and crystalline Chenin Blanc, with great precision and a long mineral finish. The parcel is situated on black schist on the slopes of the Arcison (a tributary of the Layon river). JF Vaillant explained to me that the parcel had some concentration in 2018 due to heat. Still dry, the density and purity of the wine makes it a very special vintage! Beautiful now or very suitable for long-term cellaring. Fermentation was in 500L jars and 200L stoneware eggs and aging was all in amphorae for one year. As with all of their dry wines, the Varenne du Combre is bottled unfined, unfiltered, and without the addition of sulfites.
