Pithon-Paille - Anjou Chenin Blanc "Mozaik" 2018
This Chenin Blanc has a fruity fragrance with beautiful acidity.
Jo Pithon started his famed domaine in 1978. His parents were winemakers in Anjou, and Jo has done as much as anyone to lift the appellation, and the Loire Valley as whole, onto the world stage. His focus on dry whites, now commonplace, was very innovative in the last two decades of the 20th century. He was also at the forefront of organic farming, the use of indigenous yeasts and the rejection of sugar and acid additions. Pithon works with a small handful of biodynamic growers – just one farmer for Grololo and another for the Mozaik Blanc – to create some of the freshest and most soulful wines in France.
With a pale yellow color, the aromas of clear white and clear yellow fruits. The mouth-feel is ample with a beautiful acidity characteristic of Chenin and the subsoil of schist. The MozaÏk Blanc is served perfectly with fish stew or fish pie, white meats or poultry. Drink now with a 15 minute decant or cellar for 5 years. 100% Chenin Blanc.
