About the Producer:
Thibault Masse took over Domaine de la Renière in 2018, along with partner, Guillaume Poitevin. He chose this domain because he is a lover of Chenin and in Puy-Notre-Dame, he was eager to work this variety, grown on tuffeau-chalk to express it’s unique identity. This limestone rock, characteristic of the region, is rich in trace elements and provides a regular water supply for the vines. Additionally, he was inspired by the winegrower community that is building in Puy-Notre-Dame and regularly exchanges ideas and equipment with his neighbors.

Previously all fruit was sold to negotiants and with the sale, the Gay family asked Thibault to take control of all 17 ha and keep the name.

“My ambition ? Rely on the history of the estate to breathe new life and go further in the wines. -THIBAULT MASSE

About the Wine: 100% Chenin Blanc. A parcel selection from the vines behind the house within the Clos de la Cerisaie. Vines planted in the 1950s in soil that is more clay-limestone over tuffeau chalk. Vinification: Pneumatic pressing, indigenous yeast fermentation, aged 18 months with 1/3 in sandstone amphora and 2/3 in barrel.
