Chenin Blanc is well known in the Loire, but it's also a star in the high hills of the Languedoc. The cool climate of Bruno Bouché's prime Limoux vineyards ensures slow ripening and intense citrus and ripe pear fruit with crisp minerality.

Chenin Blanc is a neglected star grape that shines not only in the Loire, but also in the high slopes of Limoux. There you'll find grower Bruno Bouché tending his extensive patchwork of vineyards, with his wife and three sons. The family is from Champagne, they still have 3 hectares there, but they moved to the Languedoc in 1989 to carry on make award winning sparkling wines that were more affordable. The grape quality from his beautifully tended vineyards is superb, which is why Chai winemaker Mark Hoddy every year reserves a vat of his Chenin Blanc. Cool fermented with regular lees stirring, the wine has a creamy richness balanced by intense lemony zip. Le Masque is a top white to enjoy on its own or with seafood, noodles or chicken.
"Outstandingly fresh. Fruity, but not overpoweringly so. Subtle and sophisticated wine"
