From the southern Rhone La Cadene blanc is a 50% Marsanne and 50% Viognier blend. Planted in shallow soils over limestone the land is tended to with biodynamic practices. Grapes are harvested by hand destemmed and fermented with natural yeast. The wine is then aged in concrete tanks.
A note from the importer (DNS wines):
"In 1956, severe frost killed off almost all the olive trees in the region around the small village of Vinsobres, and people turned to viticulture. Valerie Chaume‐Arnaud always wanted to be a winegrower, but her mother tried to dissuade her, hoping her daughter would find a more ‘modern’ occupation. Lucky for us, the strong willed Valerie followed her heart. After studying oenology and viticulture, she took over the 5 hectares of vines belonging to her parents in 1987. With her husband Philippe, they bit by bit extended the vineyards, which today cover 38 hectares. They have been organically farming their vines since 2002 and moved towards a biodynamic approach between 2004 and 2006, and are certified biodynamic by Demeter since 2009."
