2019 Pas Saint Martin 'Pierre Frite' Samur Chenin Blanc
Pas Saint Martin is pretty picturesque stuff - a beautiful property in the heart of the Samur. The long standing organic winery is housed in an old farmhouse, with cellars below dug out of the rock, where Laurent Charrier crafts excellent examples of modern Loire wines.
The Pierre Frite comes from estate vineyards on limestone soils that really showcase the dry, stern, refreshing side of Chenin Blanc. The apple and pear fruit are backdrop for the chalky mineral flavours provided by the limestone.
