Talking about Nicolas Joly means getting into the cheek of biodynamics, inside a Domaine where some of the most prestigious whites of the Loire are made.
Since 1981 Nicolas has embraced biodynamics, driven by the conviction that the understanding of the system that gives life to the land is the basis for the production of natural wines with a great personality.
Driven by this vocation, he manages to create exceptional whites like this Les Vieux Clos 2017, a great expression of Chenin Blanc.
The grapes are harvested by hand on a land cultivated manually or through the use of a horse. The use of biodynamic compounds allows Chenin to grow naturally and develop all its qualities.
The extraordinary white that derives from it conquers for opulence and elegance, aromatic intensity and full-bodied structure.
A wine that remains indelible in the soul of the lucky ones who manage to taste it.

Name: Clos de la Coulée de Serrant (Nicolas Joly) Start-up year: 1962 Cultivated hectares: 16 Address: Savennières (France)
Coulée de Serrant is the name of a vineyard planted by Cistercian monks around the year 1130, and has remained a vineyard ever since: almost 900 years of successive, uninterrupted harvests. The small old monastery, which is part of the estate, has been declared a national historical monument. A few meters away from the monastery are the ruins of the castle of "La Roche aux-Moines", around which, in 1214, took place the famous battle in which Philip Augustus defeated John Landless, son of John the Lionheart.
All around the castle there are still ancient vestiges of Celtic, Roman and Carolingian civilizations. The production is divided into three different lines: the Coulée de Serrant (AOC Coulée de Serrant) located on the steep hill overlooking the Loire, a small vineyard of only 7 hectares from which about 25,000 bottles are produced per year; the Vieux clos (AOC Savennières), smaller, from which 8/10 thousand bottles are produced; the Clos de la Bergerie (AOC La Roche aux Moines) capable of producing 15 thousand bottles.
