Domaine Paget

Touraine AZAY-LE-RIDEAU

 

Crafted in Tufa caves hewn into the Loire Valley hillside

 

 

 

Nicolas Paget, the 5th generation of his family to craft wines here, has a cellar in one such cave. Nicolas works organically, with sites in Chinon and Touraine AOC. ‘Melodie’ Chenin Blanc is made from select bunches; with a little more flavour development built around a typical Chenin acidity. Wild yeast ferment slowly in a combination of tank and old barrels.The aroma is rich yet possessing a tangerine peel freshness, the palate has weight and a gorgeous waxy ‘Chenin’ texture, finishing clean and dry.
