Touraine Azay le Rideau
Clos des Brancs comes exclusively from the flint-strewn single vineyard in Saché, located directly behind the famous artist Alexander Calder's workshop. The vineyard is surrounded by woods and exposed due South, making for a perfect microclimate to showcase why Chenin from Azay-le-Rideau can reach towering heights.
