This fine Chenin Blanc comes from Jérémie Mourat who now runs Vignobles Mourat, which was set up in 1974 by Jean Mourat. The domaine now has around 127 hectares – 67 hectares owned by the family and 60 hectares rented.
Renewing and replanting the Clos Saint-André, who was previously owned by the Taittinger family and since 1968 has covered in nettles and broom, was a childhood dream of Jérémie's.
From the Mourat website:
méta-rhyolites, le Clos Saint-André est dédié quasi uniquement à la production d’un vin blanc de grande expression.
