🇫🇷 🇯🇵 Chenin and sushi part II: We’re still in the Loire, but different AOC - Savennières. Domaine du Closel - La Jalousie. Despite being Nicolas Joly’s next-door neighbor, his and Evelyne de Pontbriand’s Savennières are complete opposites. While Joly harvests well into October, allowing his grapes to develop botrytis, Evelyne picks her chenin as early as possible, to render the wine crisp and fresh. Rumor has it they had a spat over the right to use the name Les Clos, which rightfully belonged to Domaine du Closel, but Joly protested it might be confused with his Le Clos de la Coulée de Serrant. Evelyne might have lost the legal battle, but she got even by mischievously renaming her Les Clos as La Jalousie - meaning “Jealousy”. Touché Mme Pontbriand! //
Importado no Brasil pela @ , que além de fazer uma excelente curadoria de pequenos produtores franceses, preferencialmente “raisonés” (mínima intervenção) ainda prestigia produtoras mulheres. Este Savennières é biodinâmico. Super seco, alta acidez, muito fresco. .
