The Loire has arguably become one of the most important regions for the new band of French Vignerons and no one better represents the potential and ambition of this talented group than Geneviève Delatte and Nicolas Bertin.  Based since 2008 in Rablay-Sur-Layon, a village traditionally supported by fabulous sweet Chenin Blanc, Geneviève and Nicolas have chosen a different path and are making some of the most fabulous examples of dry Chenin you are likely to find. Like many of their contemporaries in the ‘New France’ they have seen an opportunity to step outside of the strictures of the AOC (which in the Coteaux du Layon require not insubstantial levels of residual sugar) and bottle their wines as Vin de France, expressing their terroir through a different lens to produce a precise, textured and ageworthy dry Chenin Blanc. 

The winemaking philosophy is very simple: intervene as little as possible (both in the vineyard and the winery) and let nature take its course.  Pop Sec which is produced from the L’Echalier vineyard and sees extended lees ageing is without doubt one of the most consistently delicious sparkling Pét Nats we’ve ever tasted. All-star Chenin and not to be missed.
