ABOUT THE WINE
In 1985 Eddy Oosterlinck, Belgian by birth, and his wife Mileine moved to Coteaux du Layon and followed his passion of making natural Chenin Blanc. Seven hectares of 50+ yr. old Chenin Blanc vines (with the oldest planted in 1911). . The proximity to local rivers, augmented by the occurrence of morning mist or rain stimulates the development of botrytis at Juchepie. Vintages rich in botrytis allow Eddy to make his beloved sweet cuvees. When there is less noble rot in the vineyard then sweet wine production continues, just with more passes through the vineyard, and the production of the dry whites naturally increases. The balance of dry to sweet wine produced here is thus determined by nature.
Dry wine made using mature grapes but with no botrytis. Amazing complex aromas on the nose of ripe white fruit, vanilla, flowers. Nice round body thanks to oak fermentation and soft buttery hints as well because of 12 months lees ageing.
It will suit fatty fish in cream and herb sauce, white meat, seafood like clams and scallops. Pairs well also with soft creamy cheese and mushroom dishes.
A superb white wine, super concentrated flavours.
