2020 Les Athletes du Vin Chenin Blanc, Loire Valley, France

A fruity wine, well-balanced wine marked by flavors of white fruits (peach, pear) and some citrus undertones accentuated by classically bright, refreshing acidity and a linear profile that shows off its mineral finish.



The fruit is sourced from vines that are 35 years in age. Grown in sandy clay soils. The fruit is machine harvested and undergoes pneumatic pressing and fermentation in stainless steel. The wine is aged for a 4-6 months in stainless steel.


Les Athlètes du Vin is a négociant project focused on typical, value-driven wines from the Loire Valley. The idea was conceived by a group of French winemakers called Vini Be Good, who work together to distribute their wines across France. The wines are vinified by various members of the Vini Be Good network using their own grapes or grapes purchased from friends and neighbors in the Loire. We are proud to present these wines made by their friends and family, as several of the cuvées are vinified by Gérard Vallée, brother of Mathieu Vallée from Château Yvonne.

The labels for Les Athlètes du Vin are drawings by French artist, illustrator, and cartoonist Michel Tolmer, who has been the unofficial lead artist of the French natural wine movement since the 1990s.
