Product description

Description: Philippe Germain doesn't believe in high alcohol for Chenin Blanc, thinking around 13% works best. Manual harvesting and picking in lots facilitate the management of ripeness and alcohol, and allow for some fruit to be directed into sweeter Layon cuvées, rather than dry Anjou. Philippe has moved away from barriques, however, and now Roulerie whites are fermented in stainless steel or large wooden vats, without malolactic fermentation. This reflects Philippe's philosophy that he "doesn't use oak for the oak" -- he is not looking to mark the wine with the aromas or flavors of wood, as he believes top quality Chenin Blanc simply doesn't need or benefit from the treatment.
