Famed for making democratically-priced bistro wines for the thirsty masses (while sticking to core principles of no-chemical farming and zero-sulfur vinification), Sebastien Bobinet and Emeline Calvez have had to fight through hell and high water to make it. After a series of Job-like trials (hail, frost, predatory bank loans and everything in between)? 2018 was easy and generous, and no one could be more deserving of some relief. A soft, plush, quencher of a Chenin, full of apple blossoms, pears and almonds. Round in the mouth with a mineral core, this is as fun to drink solo as it is as a chevre-attacker.
