Domaine de la Roche Bleue, Jasnieres 2016
100% Chenin Blanc
Lovely aromas of dried pear, pineapple, lime-flower, honey and stone. The palate is lean and mineral with citrus, dried apple and pear, wet stone and fines herbs. The finish is bone dry, mineral and long with a firm acidity.
Serve this delicious Chenin Blanc with oysters, grilled seafood, white meats and goat cheeses.
Organic and Biodynamic.
100% Chenin Blanc, from 10 to 25-year-old vines on a slope of clay/silex soils on limestone, certified organic.
Slow pressing of whole clusters. Long fermentations, most in 4 to 6-year-old barriques and the younger vines in cuve inox. Aged in 6-year-old barrels.

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.
