OVNI = ‘Objet Viticole Non Identifi√©’, is Mourat’s name for wines that he labels “anti-conformist,” and different from what you might expect. This Chenin Blanc from their own fantastic modern winery made from organic vineyards is vinified in concrete ‘eggs’. Clear and bright with green tinges. It has a stunning clean mineral and honey nose with crunchy granny smith apple and a fitting streak of laser acidity. It has an impressively fresh and satisfying palate that is almost premier cru Chablis in style as it has that apple and lovely creaminess, its a dry wine but has tiny flecks of sweetness that make it so interesting. What a brilliant wine.
