Killer free tasting of the Loire Valley at 3
This Saturday's Free Wine Tasting: MAY 28TH THE NEW GENERATION OF LOIRE WINEMAKERS Each new generation of winemakers must struggle to define themselves. Some seek to put a signature stamp on their wine. Others embrace and tout new innovations in production. Still others resolve to maintain ancient methods, to be keepers of a proud tradition. In the Loire, with it's vast history of eonology, tradition runs deep. This week, we're going to introduce you to five young Loire winemakers, each with a distinct vantage point, and each with their own vision. Luneau-Papin Muscadet 'Terre de Pierre' Pierre-Marie Luneau heads this 50-hectare estate in Le Landreau, a village in the heart of Muscadet country, where small hamlets dot a landscape of vineyards on low hills. Their estate, also known as Domaine Pierre de la Grange, has been in existence since the early 18th century when it was already planted with Melon de Bourgogne, the Muscadet appellation's single varietal. After taking over from his father Pierre in 2011, Pierre-Marie became the ninth generation to make wine in the area. Pascal Janvier Chenin Blanc Jasnières Pascal Janvier never planned on becoming a vigneron. Though his parents had vineyard land of their own, they did not make their own wine. Instead, he went to school to learn butchery. However, Pascal made a sudden about-face at the age of thirty and decided to study winegrowing in Amboise. His serious and soft-spoken demeanor reflects a man prone to quiet contemplation and great deliberation. His decision was anything but a whim. Starting slowly, he has mastered his craft with a focus and passion that is contributing towards the revival of the small appellation of Jasnières, in the department of the Sarthe in the Val du Loir. The Loir is a tributary of the Loire River, and its viticultural area is the most northerly (and coldest) of the greater Loire region. The once proud appellations of Jasnières and the Coteaux du Loir (the preferred wines of King Henri IV) are now all but extinct, with still less than one hundred and two hundred hectares still respectively under vine. Pascal, with the help of his wife Dominique, is doing his part to remind everyone what Jasnières is capable of. The Janviers rent sixty-six different parcels (a total of nine hectares) of land and farm it entirely themselves. Jasnières produces some of the best dry Chenin Blanc (Pineau de la Loire) in the world, and its wines are said to reach their peak ten years after the vintage. The soils of their parcels are comprised of clay, limestone, sand and silex (flint), and are planted primarily to Chenin Blanc. KLWM imports one bottling of their red, made from the lighter-bodied and elegant indigenous red grape, Pineau d'Aunis. Their "Cuvée du Silex" parcel has distinct flint in the soil, lending notes of gunpowder to this beautiful, crisp Chenin. There is no doubt that Pascal and Dominique have chosen the path less traveled, though at the first sip of their wine, one understands why they keep working so hard. Their stunning aromatics and complexity prove them to be one of the greatest values in the KLWM Loire Valley Portfolio, along with the celebrated wines of Château d'Epiré. If over-alcoholic wines are getting to you, Pascal Janvier's wines are a great refuge. Éric Chevalier Chardonnay Vin de Pays du Val de Loire Éric Chevalier is a rising star in the Nantais of the Loire Valley. For ten years, he sourced fruit for a large négociant in the Touraine. In 2005, he decided to return to his hometown of Saint-Philbert de Grandlieu, just southwest of Nantes, and ended up taking over the family domaine, Domaine de l'Aujardière, the next year. His father, a talented vigneron who did not bottle much of his wines and was well-known as a high-quality source of bulk wine, had stopped working the vineyards and the vines were either going to have to be pulled up and replanted, or sold. Éric was anything but enthusiastic. Little by little his passion grew, and today he is proud to be the fourth generation to farm the domaine. He is also proud to be bottling more and more of the family's production himself. Éric sustainably farms twenty-five hectares of vines, producing wines of great character and finesse. He found his future in his family's past. The Nantais is a maritime climate, and the vineyards are not far from the Atlantic Ocean. Consequently, there is an interesting variety of sedimentary, igneous, and metamorphic rocks, as this area once was ocean floor. Of the twenty-five hectares he farms, a large percentage of his production is dedicated to the production of Melon de Bourgogne (Muscadet Côtes de Grand Lieu, mostly from old vines in the superb lieu-dit of La Butte). The soils here are comprised primarily of serpentinite and quartz, with the exception of his ancient granite parcel known as La Noë. The other half of his crop (Chardonnay, Fié Gris, and Pinot Noir, among others) goes towards the production of Vin de Pays du Val du Loire, and the soils are rich in granite, sand, and silt. Of these "country" wines, the most notable is Éric's Fié Gris. This grape, pulled out of vineyards for many years to be replaced with the more profitable Sauvignon Blanc, is indigenous to the Loire. Also known as Sauvignon Rose or Sauvignon Gris, Éric's vines are one of the few remaining strongholds of this elegant and luscious varietal. It makes an impression, with almost an Alsatian exoticism. L'Oubliée Bourgueil 'Merci la Vie' Cabernet Franc Xavier Courrant, a former Parisian caviste (wine retailer), decided to get closer to the source by founding Domaine de L'Oubliée, his 6.4 hectare estate in the commune of Saint-Patrice. After studying viticulture and oenology while working with famed vigneron Romain Guiberteau for a year, Xavier managed to purchase 3 major plots of Cabernet Franc in 2009. Merci la Vie, his entry level cuvée, comes from vines planted in 80% sand and gravel and 20% clay and limestone. This domaine is a rising star in the region and its entry-level cuvée is a Cabernet Franc for early drinking. It's very youthful, with round, soft fruit and balancing acidity. A lovely, juicy wine. Domaine de Pallus 'Messanges' Chinon Rouge Bertrand Sourdais of the Domaine de Pallus has in a very short period of time rocketed himself to the upper echelon of Chinon's producers. Sourdais' Messanges Rouge cuvee hails from Chinon's stony, silica-laced terroir whose perfumed soil signature runs like an electric current through the wine. A vibrant Bing cherry color, Pallus' 2014 Messanges Rouge bursts with classic Chinon aromas of ripe cherries, tobacco and cedar shavings. Full and round on the palate, the Messanges Rouge delivers everything we love about the noble Cabernet Franc from its spiritual homeland: vibrant cherry and leafy blueberry fruit infused with notes of dried herbs, tobacco and autumnal leaves.
