Type: Red Wine
Laurent Saillard took over a small parcel of the Clos Roche Blanche estate, a domaine which for decades had a cult following among natural wine drinkers. Laurent makes wine from this vineyard that he continues to farm organically. His wines are all made with classic Loire varieties: Gamay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, Grolleau, Pineau d'Aunis. All wines are vinified naturally, without additives and no added sulfites. Production is very small.
Gamay from Clos Roche Blanche vines planted in 1978, grown on limestone over clay. Élevage is about eight months in neutral vats prior to bottling. Soft ad juicy. Serve lightly chilled.
