Wine Expert Note:

This Jean-Maurice Raffault Chinon Blanc is a wonderfully aromatic and smooth white wine. On the nose, there are aromas of ripe honeydew melon and white peach, with touches of wet stone and fresh herbs. On the palate, the wine is bright and zesty, with flavors of ripe citrus and green apple, along with a touch of minerality on the finish. A great wine to pair with seafood dishes or a warm summer salad.

Michel Autran Les Enfers Tranquilles is an extraordinary Chenin Blanc crafted exclusively from grapes in the lieu-dit Les Enfers, aptly named 'hell.' Grown in a well-exposed region south of Noizay, Michel tends 1.5 hectares of 50-year-old vines on clay-limestone soils known as 'perruches.' Fermentation commences in steel and gracefully progresses to gravity-racked barrels sourced from Vincent Carême (4-12 years old). Following a year, the wine finds its way to stainless steel tanks, resting for an additional 12 months. This sulfite-free marvel incorporates only a minimal percentage of sulfur at bottling, resulting in Les Enfers Tranquilles, a testament to meticulous winemaking and terroir expression.
