Nicolas Reau - Attention Chenin Mechant - Loire, France


100% Chenin Blanc

Nicolas Reau never thought he would be a winemaker. He was quite happy as a jazz and blues pianist before a newspaper advert about viticulture turned Nicolas’ curiosity into a dramatic career change. He took over a 28ha estate in Sainte-Radegonde, Anjou in 1998 but discarded all but 5ha soon after as he didn’t think the land was good enough to make great wine.

Nicolas quickly began to experiment with minimal intervention winemaking, using indigenous yeasts and reducing the amount of sulphur he added to his wines. He also farms biodynamically. He uses these produce a fresh, light-bodied expression of Chenin that shows off the grape’s naturally high acidity and bright minerality techniques to.

Tasting notes: citrus peel, floral, mineral. Light-bodied with very high, fresh acidity and a lean, crisp texture.

Food pairing: Best matched with lighter dishes such as smoked salmon, fresh salad, and goat’s cheeses.
