THOMAS BATARDIERE

White Wine

Thomas Batardière, Les Cocus 2020

Place: Loire, France

Grape: Chenin Blanc

Vibe: Natural, textural

Pure Chenin magic. Fruit from a small parcel between Montbenault and Les Aussigouins, two supreme terroirs. Old vines, exposed situation, picked for freshness. Sent off to 500L barrels for 10 months prior to bottling. Like biting into the tastiest apple you've ever had. God this is good. Invigorating. ABV: 13.5%

Regular price £46.50

Taxes included

Thomas Batardière was a filmmaker before he turned his hand to natural wine. After three years under the mentorship of Mathieu Vallée at Château Yvonne in Saumur, he struck out with his own project in Rablay-sur-Layon, starting out with two hectares of his fave variety, Chenin Blanc. He’s expanded since to 3.5 hectares, growing some Grolleau and Cab Franc as well. His vineyards were certified biodynamic in 2015, and the wines somehow manage to combine power with ethereal minerality. An uncommon expression of Anjou, but a damn good one.
