Nicolas Reau Attention Chenin Mechant
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
An important pioneer of the French natural wine movement since the 2000s, Nicolas Reau makes exquisite low-intervention Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc from 7 hectares of vines rooted in clay and limestone in the Anjou region of the Loire valley.
Attention Chenin Mechant, borne from fermentation in old barrels expresses lime, ripe pear, wild flowers and great minerality. The mouth is precise and linear with great softness, balanced by racy acidity and a savoury finish.
