2007 Chenin Blanc Non Grefé Domaine Henry Marionnet
Henry Marionnet has around 5 hectares of ungrafted vines (in most of the world's vineyards the vines are grafted as a protection against phylloxera). This 2007 Chenin is decidedly austere and minerally – if I had any additional bottles it would interesting to see how it will age further. It may be that this Chenin is in its dumb stage and may open up again in a few years time.
