Mai & Kenji Hodgson, Les Aussigouins, 2018


Having plied their trade in Canada, Japan and extensively working with Mark Angeli, Mai & Kenji have vineyards on classic Anjou terroir, that is shale and schiste.  They have around 4 hectares now, built up over the last ten years since they started. The vineyards are worked with care and attention to detail, they pick at full maturity but avoid botrytis or any sweeter flavours – unless they are intending to make their ultra-rare sweet wines!

These are serious white wines with a classical tint. Although super-enjoyable, they deserve time and space to breathe and consider over hours of good conversation. Remarkable elegance and a moreish salinity.

100% Chenin on Schist terroir in Montbenault (right next to Richard Leroy’s parcels). 40 year old vines, aged on lees in barrel.

Grape:Chenin blanc
