Clos de la Bergerie 2020 is a cuvée from the Coulee de Serrant, one of the greatest white wines of Anjou.
The 2020 vintage represents the 890th consecutive harvest of the vineyard for the Joly family. Aged in oak barrels for 6 to 8 months, produced in very small quantities, it has a unique and very contemporary style.
This wine comes from 100% Chenin blanc. Yields are very low around 30 hectoliters per hectare. The harvest takes place over 4 to 5 weeks in September and October in order to obtain the most colorful maturity possible.
About the winery: Exclusively owned by the Joly family, La Coulée de Serrant vineyard is a controlled appellation of only 7 hectares.
Located in the Loire Valley of France, the vineyard has produced Chenin for close to a millennium, of a quality renowned enough to be praised in print by author Alexandre Dumas in the 1840s. In the early 1980s, Nicolas Joly decided to adopt biodynamic practices.
A decade and a half later Wine Spectator Magazine was ranking his white wine as among the best in the Loire Valley, and a decade later wine critic Jancis Robinson said his property was ' clearly destined to be one the world's great vineyards'. Maybe the best and most famous Chenin Blanc in the world.
