"Bone dry, crisp and incredibly satisfying"

Laurent Jamet is the fourth generation of his family to make wines of exceptional personality along the banks of the Loire. The plots used to make this typical white are grown on plots on the left bank, on clay atop the local limestone. Very small yields are hand harvested from 110 year old vines and traditional methods used including leaving grass between the vines.

Pale, golden yellow. Expressive, acacia, fresh walnut, lime tree and citrus nose with exceptional minerality on the palate alongside hints of white flowers, granny smith apple, dried banana and acacia honey. Crisp and persistent finish.
