The WineL’Ecole N° 41 Chenin Blanc 2018
Over 30 years of meticulous vineyard management and winemaking experience are fundamental to the quality of L’Ecole N° 41 wines and reputation for excellence. L’Ecole N° 41 has produced this old vine, crisp and aromatic Vouvray-style Chenin Blanc since 1987. The Chenin Blanc was harvested in the cool, early morning hours, and the settled juice was racked off the solids then fermented slowly in a stainless steel tank over an extended period of time at cool temperatures to yield rich and fruity flavors.
Perfect dry harvest weather extended hang-time resulting in rich color and vibrant fruit flavors. Higher sugars were balanced against higher acid levels and wonderfully intense color and tannin extraction, big fruit flavors, and overall balanced structure.
Tasting Notes: This fresh and vibrant Chenin Blanc shows highly expressive aromatics of citrus blossom, passion fruit, pink grapefruit, and peach with flavors of yellow apple and pear on a crisp dry finish.

“This was one of the first bottles I was introduced to as part of my graduate school’s wine club. With intoxicating aromas, I vividly remember this wine capturing all of my senses. Subtle yet overpowering and with hints of wet stone, this one took me on a ride I will never forget.”
