Nicolas Joly is an icon. An uncompromising man who in the 1980s bought a piece of land in the Savennieres region of the central Loire and made an iconic vineyard. The name of that land was the Coulee de Serrant. His wine is now highly prized in the Michelin star restaurants across the World. Nicolas says, ‘I don’t only want a good wine but also a true wine.’
Savennieres Vieux Clos is the second wine of the estate. It lacks none of the purity and intensity of the Grand Vin. The wine is a deep yellow/gold colour and the aromas are intense of mature fruit and above all minerality. The wine is full bodied and rich yet, the balance and purity are exceptional.
