About This Wine

Stéphane Bernaudeau has quickly become one of the Loire's cult winemakers.

If you've tasted the wines, this isn't surprising. They are snappy, bright, and seriously complicated. The purity on display is undeniable.

Bernaudeau studied under Mark Angeli of Sansonnière, who is one of the great advocates of biodynamic winemaking in the Loire. Using the principles that he learned from Angeli, Bernaudeau makes three single-parcel wines. Les Onglés comes from a two-hectare parcel of 30-year-old vines planted on schist.

Anjou’s reputation was built on commercially produced sweet wine. Now, Bernaudeau’s small, 3ha domaine is proving that the region is capable of producing exceptional examples of dry, terroir-driven Chenin Blanc.
