description

100% Chenin Blanc. Domaine Mosse is a leading organic producer of delicious wines particularly those made from Chenin Blanc. Living Wines has been importing their wines for many years and they have always been very popular in Australia during that time.

People praised the wines, clearly had immense affection for Agnès and René Mosse, and also talked about the influence they’d had on other wine makers who’d worked with them to gain experience and then started making their own wines.

Since then we have got to know Agnès and René and to know more about their wines. We have found that they not only turn out excellent red wines but their white wines made from Chenin Blanc are seriously good wines as well.

Their vineyards at Saint Lambert du Lattay are immaculately maintained and we have a particular affection for the Bonne Blanches vineyard which is where their oldest Chenin Blanc vines are to be found.

The Mosses are certified Biologique by Qualite France.  The Anjou Blanc is made from Chenin Blanc grapes picked from younger vines in four different parcels of the Mosse vineyards. The vineyards lie on south-west facing slopes and the soils are composed of sand and gravel lying on a bed of schist. The grapes are picked and sorted manually. The average yield is very low for a dry white wine at 25 hectolitres per hectare. The grapes are left to ferment naturally in wooden fûts and undergo both alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation. There is a tiny amount of residual sugar in this fresh-tasting wine with a lovely mouthfeel. This is a great wine redolent of spice and minerality which linger on the palate for ages!
