Julien Pineau 'Roche Blanche' Sauvignon Blanc Loire, France 2018
Regular priceSale price
2014 was the last vintage at Clos Roche Blanche- one of the pioneering estates in the Loire Valley for organics and biodynamics. Fortunately, Julien Pineau (already working at Clos Roche) and Laurent Saillaird (a wine geek at Noella Morantin) were able to purchase some of the vines from Clos Roche Blanche and begin this new project. Julien and team are down with the same natural farming vibes- looking to create an eco system with fruit trees, vegetable plants and cute little helper farm animals. And the wine is fire.
White fruit, melon and lemon peel on the nose. Nice texture and savory structure on the palate make for classic, yet complex Sauv blanc. Loire vibes everywhere.
