2013 Nicolas Joly Coulée de Serrant Savennières Chenin Blanc
Coulée de Serrant is a small AOC located within Savennières. It was originally planted by the Cistercian monks in 1130. The Joly family bought it in 1962. Nicholas Joly is the ‘godfather’ of Biodynamic viticulture. He began converting all of his vineyards in the early 1980s. From a 7 hectare ‘monopole’ appellation, the vines are very low yielding (approximately half of what is legally required) and it is cultivated by hand and by horse. Deep gold in colour indicating some oxidative winemaking. The nose and the palate is classic Chenin Blanc – oranges, cumquats and classic bruised apples. The palate has a beautiful roundness, dry and a definite acid holding onto the flavours for ages.
