Château De Bonnezeaux went 30 years without making any wine. That is, until Guyonne Saclier de la Bâtie turned up in 2012, transforming the abandoned vineyards to biodynamics and implementing practices she learnt from local masters Mark Angeli and Stephane Bernaudeau.

With tiny production and stunning intensity, these dry wines are a rarity in what is classically sweet wine country, which has very quickly earned Guyonne and her wines a cult following. 

It's prime dry Loire Chenin this, quite punchy and opulent in the ripeness of the fruit, lots of midsummer pear and apple, with honeycomb and apricot that gives the mouthfeel huge density and complexity while still preserving a dry mineral backbone.
