Nicolas Joly - Château de la Roche - Les Vieux Clos 2017
One of the benchmarks for the Loire's Chenin Blancs are the wines by the legendary Nicolas Joly. The crazy godfather of biodynamics and natural winemaking, who has been working biodyamically since 1984 and has written multiple books on the subject, is striving for the ultimate expression of terroir and succeeds in his efforts. These late harvested, clean grapes create a wine of incredible power and elegance. This is a full-bodied, powerful Chenin Blanc of incredible balance with a long lasting, intense finish.
