  • As wine rarities go, Chinon Blanc is right near the top. With just 2% of the appellation planted to Chenin Blanc, only a few estates produce and bottle any for sale, and of those that do, maybe a handful get exported. Chateau la Trochoire is run by three brothers, symbolized by the 3-legged chicken weather vane on the label, and organically farmed. Their Chinon Blanc Elisabeth is barrel-fermented and aged.
