The Folle Blanche grape, typically known for producing Cognac, can be a difficult grape to work with: it is thin skinned, and often has trouble reaching prime ripeness. In the Loire Valley, it is often grown in bulk and harvested early to produce oftentimes bland and uninteresting wines. Marc Pesnot of Domaine de la Sénéchalière, on the other hand, lowers yields and only harvests his grapes when ripe, producing a much more complex and flavorful wine. The grapes are hand-harvested, pressed gently and matured for about a year before bottling with no fining or filtration and only minimal use of sulfites. The result is a wine that tastes fresh and electric, with pretty aromas of preserved lemons and a soft minerality that makes for an excellent pairing with oysters or grilled chicken.
