Coteaux du Layon is a region in the Loire Valley that is famous for its sweet wines made from Chenin Blanc grapes that have been affected by the wonderfully named ‘noble rot’. This is a fungus called Botrytis cinerea rhat attacks the already ripe grapes, concentrating them into sweet, shrivelled berries that have the capacity to make complex, thrilling wines.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES: - "Clean, crisp and dry on the nose with some typical notes of apples and pears. The wine is bone dry with a chalky texture on entry and displays a good structure, Read More...
with a lively apple-like acidity running through the wine. There is a hint of spritz coming from a little residual carbon-dioxide which helps to lift the impression of freshness and acts as a preservative. This is for immediate drinking, but could be expected to age for three to five years."

s estate vineyards at the foot of the Helderberg in Stellenbosch.
The vineyards are farmed organically, and everything is done by hand. Grapes for the FMC are hand selected from a single block of low yielding Chenin bush vines planted in 1974. Each vine is pruned to 5 or 6 shoots, with 1 bunch per shoot. They are planted in Clovelly — a deep yellow sandy soil — on south-southwest-facing slopes.

Ripe, high quality fruit is the key to making this "pink lady" the most alluring Cabernet Franc-based bubbly we have ever had. All the juice was fermented in 400L 8 year-old barrels. Read More...
Bottling took place in February 2013 and disgorgement in July 2013. Shimmering dark with a very fine perlage its aromas present a veritable basket of raspberries, strawberries, and red currant aromas joined by top notes of roses and vanilla. The pristine palate mirrors the red fruit bouquet but is bolstered by undertones of citrus and limestone. A primo patio quaffer if there ever was one.

Bertrand Jousset is a passionate, larger than life (he looks to be about six foot six) Loire Valley vigneron. Bertrand and his wife Lise are part of a vanguard of young wine producers that are revitalizing the Mount Louis wine scene. Located in Touraine on the left bank of the Loire River opposite from Vouvray, Mount Louis features old vines and relatively inexpensive land making it something of a Mecca for a new generation of winery startups. Loire Valley natives, the Joussets had always dreamed of working with Chenin Blanc. That dream seemed far off until suddenly in 2003 they happened upon a small, run-down estate for rent that offered great potential. The property featured an historic ridge top chateau with three levels to facilitate gravity flow winemaking. More importantly, the property possessed 26 acres of old vines averaging 60 years of age. After nearly a decade of moonlighting and scrimping, the couple was able to assume ownership of the estate. Their vineyards are divided into 25 garden-sized parcels planted primarily to Chenin Blanc rounded out with small holdings of Cabernet Franc, Gamay, Grolleau, and Chardonnay. Bertrand mainly overseas the grape farming which is strictly organic. He also follows an aggressive pruning schedule to limit yields and takes extra time and care to field sort his fruit at harvest to ensure that only the healthiest grapes make it to the crusher. The winery is Lise’s relm where she follows a non-intervention regime that includes fermentation with native yeasts, minimal application of SO2, and clarification without filtration.

Fashioned from 100% Chenin Blanc grapes planted primarily on schist soil from a variety of plots including Savennieres, Angers and Samur from vines ranging from 20-70 years old. Read More...
The fruit aromas flavors of this still wine are more muted than the above bubblies (as one would expect) but over time this white opens nicely to reveal hints of nectarine, white peach and pippin apples on the nose. In the mouth this wine is taught, yet well textured with an old-vine density with leads to a long inter play of juicy orchard fruits and deep seated mineral flavors on the back palate. A serious, yet versatile wine for summer's lighter fare.

PINE RIDGE 13 CHENIN/VIOGNIER
$10.95
Quantity

Pine Ridge has one of the most solid portfolios in California crafting flavorful Cabernets, Merlots, and Chardonnays; but what often strikes us most is their Chenin Blanc - Viognier blend! Read More...
This wine has been one of our perennial favorites for years. It is a rather unconventional blend, but once you taste the flavors and the refreshing qualities of the wine, we know you’ll be hooked just as we have been!

Pine Ridge’s winemaker Michael Beaulac likes the Chenin Blanc (79% of the blend) harvested early to maintain its bright acidity, while Viognier (21% of the blend) brings its signature fragrant bouquet. The 2013 bottling of this distinctive blend opens with a dazzling spectrum of fruit and floral aromas, from crisp white peach, honeyed pear and sweet mango, to touches of fresh jasmine blossom and white chai tea. Filled with bright and juicy fruits, the palate flaunts flavors of succulent white nectarine, candied pineapple, green fig and subtle grapefruit. The crisp and slightly off-dry flavor profile lasts well through the clean and refreshing finish.
SADIE 13 SKERPIOEN CB/PALOMINO
$44.98
Quantity

Skerpioen (Scorpion) is a very unique, unirrigated old vine parcel planted on the West Coast near the village of Dwarskersbos. One of the most amazing aspects of this vineyard is the Read More...
fact that it is planted in chalky (limestone) soils in one of the coolest parts of the Swartland region, located a mere 2km from the Atlantic Ocean—but this is also a very dry location with an average rainfall of around 300mm per year. The cool climate and restrictive growth as a result of the limited water availability have resulted in this 60-year-old-parcel rendering a unique quality wine with a distinctive imprint. Its 2.4 hectares of old vines are mainly planted with Chenin Blanc and Palomino. Skerpioen is a field blend of both varieties—they are picked and pressed together, and co-fermented in old wooden casks. The most obvious characteristics of this wine is its incredible crisp acidity and freshness; and the line of minerality—thanks to this very unique soil.
SADIE FAMILY 13 SKURFBERG CB
$44.98
Quantity

This wine blends Chenin Blanc from old bushvine parcels on three farms on the slopes of the Skurfberg (“rugged mountains”) between Clanwilliam and Lamberts Bay in the Olifants River Region. Read More...
They are immaculately farmed properties, which have not been subjected to herbicide or chemical fertilizers by the current farmers. Most of the soils in the area are of decomposed sandstone, and very sandy. Rainfall is low - these vines have had to be tough to survive without irrigation. Together these three low yielding parcels represent the possibilities of the area, each offering something unique to the complexity of the whole. The one site has huge and aromatic fruit concentration; the second offers an earthy character and minerality, and the third (the highest, and closest to the Atlantic) retains amazing acidity and freshness. The three parcels of fruit were vinified separately. They were basket-pressed and then transferred directly to old casks where natural fermentation took place. We blended them after 12 months, and then left them to age another six months before bottling.
