Centre Val de Loire
Le Champ Jacquot
2018 in Centre-Loire : Hot, dry weather makes for a promising vintage. Just as any other northern region, the Centre Loire is profoundly affected by vineyard conditions in any given year – and 2018 will be no different. The weather has been rather distinctive this year, and has resulted in wines with very pure flavours.
Our Coteaux du Giennois red , L’Inédit vines are planted on the soils of Pougny.
Only grapes coming from a single parcel of 30-year-old Pinot Noir grapes, planted on a chalk limestone slope, have been used to create this wine which has great concentration and an interesting complexity.
To avoid damaging the grapes great care was taken during the harvesting and sorting of the bunches. Cold maceration prior to fermentation for a total of 16 days of vinification. Throughout this process, the must is pumped over twice daily so as to maximize the extraction of colour and tannins.
Situated between Gien and Cosne-sur-Loire, this vineyard of 191 hectares has a temperate climate thanks to the Loire River, with a continental influence from the east. It’s planted on hillsides of the Loire extensions of the geologic formations of Sancerrois and Pouilly. Coteaux du Giennois is a small and recent appellation, even if one can find archeological evidences of winegrowing in this region since the 2nd century. In full expansion with authentic wines that reveal the originality of their terroir.
Pinot noir : 100%
100 % malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. Afterwards the wine spent 9 to 12 months in French oak barrels from different tonneliers (coopers), in order to soften the tannins and allow natural aeration to occur.
REVIEWS AND AWARDS
90 points : L’Inédit 2015 Coteaux du Giennois Pinot Noir
Clément & Florian Berthier
One of a range of single-parcel wines from this producer, this is light and fruity. A hint of tannins gives it shape but with its four years aging and ripe cherry flavors.
“Gourmand, suave, avec un fruité bien dégagé, ce vin est sorti du lot dans notre dégustation de Coteaux du Giennois, on aime sa finale montante épicée.”
“Clément et Florian Berthier 2014 L’Inédit Pinot Noir (Coteaux du Giennois)
With its light color and cool feel, this well-balanced wine comes from a parcel of 30-year-old vines. The smoky tannins and intense acidity give a wine that will develop well and slowly. It’s still young with its red-berry fruits and fresh aftertaste. Drink from 2018.”
