Description

Astonishing dry Chenin showing subtle aromas of apple blossom, pear, dried herbs, almond, citrus and white pepper. The palate is dense but crystalline and intensely mineral with white fruits, almond, citrus and stone flavours that continue in a very long finish. 

 

Organic and Biodynamic.

  • Critics Reviews

From 25 to 30-year-old Chenin Blanc vines in a mid-slope parcel of thin clay and silex soils on limestone, yields of 25 hl/ha, certified organic with biodynamic methods as well. Fermented and aged in 4 to 6-year-old barriques. 

Domaine de la Roche Bleue was established in 2008 by Sebastien Cornille, a native of Sancerre, with 3.5 hectares in Jasnieres and 1.5 hectares in the Coteaux-du-Loir. Now totalling about 6.5 hectares, the estate is certified organic and uses biodynamic methods as well. Sebastien works the soils without deep plowing, harvests by hand, vinifies with wild yeasts and without additives and uses minimal SO2. 

Sebastien Cornille has quickly become one of the finest producers of Loire Valley Chenin Blanc in the Coteaux-du-Loir and Jasnieres.
