Jean Christophe is a pure artist in constant search of expressing his personality in his wines. If perfection does not exist, he still knows that there is always a space for improvement. When he started to buy vineyards in Saint Lambert Du Lattay, a small prestigious village in the Heart of the Layon (where Mosse, Pithon, and Les Griottes come from) he started with two parcels of Chenin, then acquired a third one. Les Clavieres producing his generic dry Chenin, Bezigon and La Roche his upper cuvees on different soils. After 9 years getting more and more precise with the raising of his wines, he decided to blend both La Roche and Bezigon in a big foudre instead of old barrels. 2011 was the first released of that marriage and brought up a stunning wine, perfect balance between the two previous cuvees. JC pushes the maturity to its extreme, at the limit of the botrytis, then presses the grapes for two to three days in apple press to allow a skin contact and a hint of oxydative notes as well as a whisper of VA. The end result is a complex, extracted yet digestible and very pure wine. Un Grand Vin!

A blend of his two previous cru’s, La Roche and Bčzigon.

The first vintage raised in a New Oak Foudre rather than used barrels

Uses old apple press to give a long and slightly oxidative press 2 to 3 days.
