2021 La Paire
Laurent is originally a chef from Brooklyn!
Although born and raised in France, Saillard used to pour wines at his bar in New York! Now he makes them in the Loire Valley. He began his career in winemaking working with Didier Barouillet & Catherine Roussel of the Clos Roche Blanche winery. He began his first solo vintage in 2012 and has never looked back. Laurent’s wines are carefully thought out, constantly observed and precise. No chemical sprays and everything done by hand, Saillard looks to create wines that can age but also have maturity beyond their years. 100% Gamay from old friend Julien Moreau that is whole bunch macerated, and spends 5 months elevage in fibreglass. Raspberry lollies, a touch of spice and ready for the esky.
