Jean-Pierre Robinot Cuvee Juliette 2010
Origin: Loire, France
Grapes: Chenin Blanc
A remarkable expression of Chenin Blanc from vines over a hundred years old, only made in the best of years. The grapes were harvested late with botrytis, pressed directly to barrel and fermented "dry" and aged over 6 years in barrels. Signature wine with a balance of oxidation and a hint of sweetness. Reminiscent of a Oloroso sherry.
3 barrels, each barrel a different label. Named after his daughter Juliette.
Jean-Pierre Robinot has been at the forefront of the scene for years now, opening a seminal bistrot in Paris and starting a journey on natural wines, before moving back to the village where he grew up in Loire Valley to produce fantastic Chenin Blanc and Pineau d'Aunis that you should definitely try.
