Brettomyces expresses itself differently in white wines—typically I find myself less in the barnyard and more in the root cellar. Pickled ginger and horseradish are found here, along with celeriac and fresh cole slaw notes. Matched with some candied green apple and a stony finish, this Chenin is quite refreshing, and all the more complex perhaps due to a little Brett. 

Jérémie Choquet began working for Pierre-O Bonhomme and Thierry Puzelat and eventually bought some vines and a cellar in 2018 not far from Bonhomme and Puzelat in Cheverny. He now has 2.5 hectares and supplements this with some purchased fruit, as is the case with this Chenin Blanc. All his farming is organic and he uses homemade teas as well as some copper and sulfur in the vineyards. Sulfur in the cellar is kept to about 10-20ppm at bottling. His wines are distinctive and full of quirky vitality. Jonathan Kemp
