2014 Nicolas Joly Coulée de Serrant (Savennières)

SKU #1283574 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The yellow-golden 2014 Clos de la Coulée de Serrant, a world famous and iconic Chenin with its own appellation (Savennières – Coulée de Serrant AC), opens with a beautifully clear, precise and aromatic bouquet of ripe and dried, lovely concentrated stone and grapefruit, as well as some honey aromas intermixed with crushed crystalline stones and herbal flavors. Highly elegant, clear and vital on the palate, this full-bodied wine is immensely intense but also silky, transparent and finesse-full. The long and stimulating finish is enormously piquant and salty, very compact but in perfect balance. There are dried Mediterranean herbs like thyme along with concentrated apricot and quince flavors in the persistent aftertaste. A great, elegant and very refined Coulée. (SR) 95+ Inner quote mark (10/2016)

K&L Notes

Coulée de Serrant is a small AOC located within Savennières and is only about 17 acres in size. It was originally planted by Cistercian monks back in 1130. The average vine age is between 35-40 years of age with the oldest being around 80 years old. The dense red schist soils give this wine its renowned concentration, structure and power. The winery converted over to biodynamic farming back in 1980, before it was so hip, and they are committed to bottling a natural "wine-of-place." This is one of the most powerful wines of the world. Cellar for 10+ years or decant vigorously for a few hours.
