Origin: Maine-et-Loire, Loire, France
Grapes: Chenin Blanc

Thomas and Marie-Lise Batardiere make pure and precise low-intervention wines in Anjou, France. L'Esprit Libre is Chenin Blanc made from 3 parcels in Rablay, from vines 15-90 years old. The parcels are plateaus of red sand and quartz gravel on schist. As always, they adopt a non-interventionist winemaking approach, and the grapes are fermented spontaneously and the juice is left on lees until summer. This is aged on fine lees in stainless steel tanks. Fruit, crisp and saline, this is perfect with food. Unfined and unfiltered.
