Luneau Papin Folle Blanche 2019
Region: Loire Valley
Grapes: Folle Blanche
Bottle size: 75cl
Viticulture: certified organic and biodynamic
Winemaking: stainless steel
Folle Blanche, also known as Gros Plant, tends to be grown in the coastal area of the Loire, and it makes a refreshingly low-alcohol wine. No oak is used; just a little time on lees. Fresh and delicately fruity.
About the producer: This estate has been cultivating vines since the 17th century, and is currently run by 9th generation Pierre-Marie and Marie. The winery converted fully to biodynamic in 2019 and is focused on maintaining the purity of their terroir. They have opted for producing smaller cuvées from their several plots, which are always vinified separately so as to reflect their terroir’s particular character.
