Les Pouches, François Saint-Lô, 2017


Now to one of our favourite winemakers here at Brawn. Like his mentors, Olivier Cousin & Eric Dubois, François prefers to work with horses in the vineyards and all other work is done by hand. These are gentle, ethereal wines whose expression changes, as they should do, every single year.

Les Pouches is François’ new parcel of 30 year old Chenin Blanc vines, replacing the Fontanelles plot.  Les Pouches is planted closeby to an ancient river bed, full of fossils and diverse soil types. A third of the harvest was whole bunch macerated for about 2 weeks, while the rest was directly pressed. It shows a textured, weightier white with characteristic excitement from the moment it’s opened.

Grape:Chenin blanc
