|Producer: Nicolas Joly-Coulée de Serrant (Biodynamic)|
|Region: Loire Valley|
|Wine: 2014 Coulée de Serrant |
|One of the most fabled vineyards in all of France, this site bears its own appellation for 7 hectares. The steep vineyard plunges dramatically overlooking the Loire river. Tilled by both tractor and horse, its lean schist soils produce a unique nectar who's traits epitomize the notion of terroir. The vines are 35-40 years old (with some reaching 80 years old), planted 4800-6700 vines per hectare. The wine is never chaptalized and indigenous yeasts power the fermentation. Barrel fermented and aged, only 5% new oak is used with some stirring of the lees during the process. Light sulfuring happens at bottling following a very light filtration. 2000 cases produced annually.|
