Spirituelles Croix Blanche
100% Chenin Blanc
AOC Coteaux du Layon
The Croix Blanche plot is facing south,
on a magnificent hill. At the foot of the latter stream Saint-Lézin, which on autumn mornings turns into mist, promoting the phenomenon of "noble rot" to give a grape concentrated in sugar. Magical element of this plot, the rhyolite terroir. It brings amplitude and a lot of flexibility to our Croix Blanche Spirituelles cuvée.
In addition, the Coteaux du Layon appellation area benefits from an almost Mediterranean microclimate which is perfectly suited to Chenin, the only grape variety used.
