Tasting Notes

This is phenominal Chenin! Considering it's produced by a Canadian-Japanese couple, it shows so much terroir through the wine. Minerality, concentration of fruit and above all an intriguing acid line that teaters on the edge of abnormality. Naturally grown and naturally made. Rare and highly sort after. - Chris L

Grown on schist soils in Faye d'Anjou, Les Aussigouins is 100% Chenin Blanc that comes off vines of up to 40 years. Elevage is 8-10 months in barrel and is then bottled unfined, unfiltered and without sulphur. - Importer Note

Japanese-Canadians Mai & Kenji Hodgson made the jump from Vancouver to the Loire back in 2009 after their years of wine loving turned eventually forced it's hand into wine making. Born and raised in the outskirts of Vancouver, Kenji studied mechanical engineering at British Columbia University and alongside his studies discovered his love for wine. Shortly after meeting Mai the two travelled to Japan where their affection for minimal intervention wine grew and eventually found themselves in the heart of the Loire. Now they live in the beautiful village of Rablay-sur-Layon, surrounded by historical vineyards, neighbouring vignerons and 4 hectares of vines to call their own in Anjou. Their soils are largely shale, schist and clay, and their farming strictly organic with some biodynamic practices, entirely motivated by their pursuit of the understanding of terroir. All fruit is handpicked, fermented on native yeast and without any additions whatsoever. - Importer Note
