'In 2013, longtime friends Nicolas Grosbois and Philippe Mesnier purchased 12 hectares of vines in Azay-le-Rideau, an excellent though relatively unknown terroir located a few kilometers east of Chinon. They immediately began farming all the vines organically, and set about on an ambitious project to reintroduce the wines of Azay-le-Rideau. Traditionally, Azay-le-Rideau is famous for white wines made from Chenin Blanc and rosé wines made from Grolleau and Gamay.
It's not easy to find a great value, reliably delicious and organic Chenin Blanc. Producing such an elusive goal was part of the inspiration of Domaine des Hauts Baigneux from the start. While their better known neighbor has gravitated towards industrial winemaking for the hypermarchés of France, the great terroir of Azay-le-Rideau remained largely unknown, which presented an incredibly opportunity to acquire and produce excellent wines and reasonable prices. Les Chênes comes from a blend of various parcels around the Azay le Rideau appellation in Cheillé and Vallère. This area is a phenomenal value for a terroir-driven hand-crafted Chenin Blanc.' - Importer's Notes
