The spiritual heart of this Domaine! Savennières-Coulée de Serrant was approved as its own AOC in 2011 and is one of the few monopoly appellations in France. Rajat Parr explains the power of this place in a few words: "Historically, along with Montrachet, Yquem and Château Grillet, its whites have been the most prized in France".
The Coulée de Serrant is a small valley of 7 hectares oriented mainly to the south, with the Loire flowing directly below. Mornings are very foggy until early afternoon. The vines are on average 50 years old, although some were planted in 1910! Massale selection enhances originality!
Soil: very fine topsoil, less than 40 cm, red shale with perfect drainage.
The most emblematic producer of the Loire? In addition to being one of the greatest references and the great herald of biodynamics in wine, Nicolas Joly is the curator of the magical vineyard of Coulée de Serrant. Part of the mystique of this historic property is the fact that its vines were planted by Cistercian monks in 1130, and since then they have never stopped producing. The distinct mesoclimate on the banks of the Loire, the old vines on schist soils and the mystical energy of this place are always expressed through the noble Chenin Blanc variety.
