Clos de Midi Chenin Blanc 2020

winestyle-img Fresh & Juicy
Fruity
Like a fruit basket of fresh fruit: From citrus to peach, apple, pear, to cherry, raspberry or plum.
Mineral
Like the idea of a wet stone: sometimes cool, salty, slightly smoky and mostly a tight, grippy texture on the palate. Rather a mouthfeel than aromatics.

Sustainable agriculture based on the Burgundian model

His father Yves Lambert was already a wine legend in the Loire with Domaine St Just. In 2005, the father and son team laid the foundation for their shared vision of sustainable agriculture based on the Burgundian model, focusing on the site character of the crus from the communes of St. Cyr and Brézé. With the management takeover of the legendary Château de Brézé in 2009, another 20 hectares of France's most valuable walled old vineyards (Clos) came into their hands.

The precision and vitality of the tuff soils

The wines that grow on the limestone-rich tuff soils and are planted with Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc varieties have an incredible precision with an almost electrifying vitality. They are a clear expression of the soil, the tuffeau (tuff) of porous limestone, as well as of the winemaker.

Arnaud Lambert stands for minimal intervention

Considering the impressive size of the winery, so much individuality and personality of each wine is incredible. Arnaud owns 60-year-old vines on clayey limestone, which supports the characterful and acidic aromas. 

Everything is harvested by hand, the grapes are completely destemmed and fermented spontaneously. The different qualities are then matured in a virtuoso manner. 

Stainless steel, barrique, barrel and/or concrete egg accentuate Arnaud Lambert's fine wines with a clear profile and mineral depth. 

Due to the low pH values of the wines, however, the issue of sulphur is kept low and minimal to no SO2 is added.
