Domaine les Chesnaies
Natural wine

Country: France

Beatrice and Pascal Lambert created Domaine les Chesnaies in 1987 and have turned it into a fine biodynamic producer of both white and red Chinon wines (yes, white wines made from Chenin Blanc are permitted in Chinon).
The vineyard extend over 14 hectares and they have been certified as biodynamic since 2004. Beatrice and Pascal harvest their grapes by hand and the wines are fermented only with natural yeasts.
We love the Rochette which is made form Chenin Blanc. It is a mineral-laden expressive wine of considerable charm. We also enjoyed the Lambert Les Chesnaies 2008 and the Cuvee Danae 2005 at La Cave Voltaire in Chinon recently.
