Does everything Domaine Mosse touches turn to gold?! Perhaps not, perhaps Ruby in this case. A natural sparkling wine with natural floaty bits and a whole mouthful of fun. Bright red fruits and plenty of bubble leap onto your palate. It's both refreshing and tasty, which I think is the perfect way to start a sunny afternoon. - Chris L
This wine gets me in to trouble... and I like it! This is natural Chenin Blanc at its best. It has this honeyed richness but also a focused purity and zippiness along-side a mineral purity. It is everything you want in a wine of this level and you will continue to go back to it - its deliciousness is addictive!
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.
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.
