Purveyors of fine grape juice
2015 JC Garnier Roche Bezigon loire valley, france
$51

100% organic certified Chenin Blanc.
30-60 year old vines on Schistous soils. Hand Harvested, indigenous yeast.. JC Garnier uses an old apple basket press (slower pressing process) which gives some slight oxidatives notes. This cuvee is aged in 500L foudre for one year, with a touch of sulphur before bottling. Great balance between the ripe pear and quince notes, the fresh acidity of the Chenin and the minerality of the schist. 2015 was a warmer year in the Loire showing a nice ripeness and softness.
