Famille Joly - Clos de la Bergerie 2022 - AOC Savennières - Roche Aud Moines

Now that Nicolas's daughter Virginie has taken the reigns of most of the work at the estate, the name has slightly changed from Nicolas Joly on the front label to Famille Joly to show that it is now a family effort. 

The wines are made according to biodynamic practices (since 1980) by the world’s foremost thinker, philosopher and practitioner of biodynamic wine farming, Nicolas Joly. The reputation of the estate, the man and the wines is unquestionable and needs little introduction. These are perhaps the world’s most important wines philosophically when it comes to understanding biodynamics and they are surely the most idiosyncratic Chenin Blancs in the world.

Famille Joly - Clos de la Bergerie 2022 - AOC Savennières - Roche Aud Moines

A single vineyard mid-slope adjacent to La Coulee de Serrant, where there is about half as much soil on top of the schist. These wines tend to get riper, and can often finish with a touch of residual fruit sweetness which is balanced with textural grip. They are the most forthright of the wines.
