    Winemaker Notes

    Fermented and aged in neutral barrels, this wine evokes the classic beeswax and lychee nose of great Chenin. The mouth feel is more linear than the Vieux Clos with more aging time needed to open up to notes of quince, baked apple and some exotic citrus.

    Nicolas Joly Winery Image
    Nicolas Joly returned, leaving behind a career in finance, to the fabled Coulée de Serrant in 1977. The celebrated vineyard, which comprises its own appellation, was planted in the 1130s. At first he implemented modern agricultural methods, but afters three years he became troubled by subtle but noticeable alterations in the vineyards. After reading a book on biodynamics that he picked up by chance, he became fascinated by the concept, and embarked on a experimental reconversion of a small area of vineyards. Rapidly convinced by the results, he started to implement biodynamic practices across the estate and has been Demeter and Ecocert certified since 1984. In 2001, he founded "La Renaissance des Appellations/Return to Terroir" and today the organization boasts 140 producers from around world. He has written many books on the subject, and is widely considered a pioneer and leader of the biodynamic wine movement.

    Known for its delightful whites and sparkling Pétillant and Mousseux, made predominantly of Chenin blanc, Anjou has a temperate and dry maritime climate. The region's limited temperature variations are admiringly referred to locally as the “douceur angevine,” or “Anjou sweetness.” Fruit forward rosé and red wines from Cabernet Franc and Gamay merit Anjou its success within the Loire subregions.

    Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
