Famille Joly - Les Vieux Clos 2022 - AOC Savennières

Sold out

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 - Les Vieux Clos 2022 - AOC Savennières

A beautiful assortment of old walled vineyards on the top of the slope. The schist here is topped with roughly one meter of clay soil. The wines are packed with wild & ripe fruit flavours of melon and orchard fruit playing out against coriander and quinine. The finish is classic Savennières - powerful and long.
