'Arena' 2012, Domaine Mosse, Savennières, France
Agnés and René Mosse produce wonderfully characterful Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley, firm followers of an organic and biodynamic philosophy from vineyard to winery. 'Arena' is a single vineyard plot of just 0.45 hectares. A vivacious, energetic wine which reveals apricot and quince, with a mineral core. Chenin Blanc in top gear.
