Julie & Toby Bainbridge - Les Jongleurs 2022 - Harmonious. Bright. Textured Chenin Blanc - Coteaux du Layon, France - 750ml Bottle

Regular price £22.99

Tax included.

This exquisite cuvée emerges from the storied tapestry of the Coteaux du Layon, a region where the lore of Chenin Blanc is as deeply rooted as the vines themselves. The assemblage is a masterful duet of two distinct terroirs; one, a spirited youngster basking in sandy soils, the other, a sun-drenched jewel lavished with southern exposure and kissed by quartz. Like two dancers in a ballet, they ripen with their individual grace, yet when harvest chimes, they pirouette simultaneously to create a beautiful harmony. This unity echoes in the perfect equilibrium of refreshing acidity and the Chenin Blanc's signature creamy softness. Post this vibrant dance, the wine embarks on a brief sojourn in concrete, maturing with a quiet dignity. The result is a bright and tart masterpiece, its texture echoing the intricate choreography of its creation. A well-judged length, like an applause that lingers, ends the performance on a high note."

In terms of food pairing, a creamy lobster bisque or a rich, buttery Coquilles St. Jacques would pair marvelously, as the wine's bright, tart character and textural backbone would cut through the creaminess and complement these dishes beautifully.
