From Chateau du Hureau:
"Historically the Chenin was the King of the grape varieties planted on the banks of the Loire, but it was made usurped by the Cabernet Franc, and these days are becoming a rarity in the Saumur Champigny appellation.
Strictly reduced yields, organic farming, harvesting in successive pickings:
Our 4 plots of Chenin are working with the aim of limiting the yield to 30-40h / h to enable the grapes to ripen naturally to 12.5 - 13.5 ° so that it is not necessary to add any sugar. Harvesting is done by hand using harvesting sneakers; The grapes are then pressed and fermented in vat with indigenous yeasts. The residual sugar in this dry wine varies with each vintage, ranging from 2-5gl / l. The wine is aged 6-12 months in vat and in barrel."
