Details

Reflets Rose Domaine Saint Nicolas Thierry Michon, biodynamic wine, light fresh Rose, 90% Pinot Noir, 10% Gamay and Groslot Gris. Mineral, elegant, very quaffable! With an average vine age of twenty years, planted on schist soils, Rose Reflets has a gloriously pale pink colour with berry aromas with a savoury dry finish. Light berry aromas on the palate, fantastic delicate balance in the mouth. It is light, refreshing and delicious. You can drink it any time of the year.

Thierry's father purchased the vineyard at Ile d’Olonne in 1970 to build the winery that Thierry now runs. The wines of Saint-Nicholas are unique due to the vineyard's proximity to the ocean and resulting micro-climate: sea, woodland and the marshes of the Ile d’Olonne. They have a wide variety of grapes across this 37 hectare estate, and it is all farmed biodynamically. No easy task! For Thierry Michon, the schist and silex soils so close to the Atlantic are key to his success. His vineyards never see a non-organic product. He raises his own cows simply for the manure they produce which he religiously spreads between the vines. He has also slowly purchased buffer zones all around his property to prevent chemical products from other winemakers from seeping into his parcels. His wines are deliciously fresh, almost enhanced by the sea breezes that drift n across the vines. They have an inherent mineral character and the reds are both elegant and light and yet profound, the Grand Piece Pinot Noir being truly spectacular wine to rival many a great Burgundy.
