Bertin Delatte - 'Vingt Neuf' Vin de France 2016
This product is currently sold out.
Our new vintage of 'Vingt Neuf' is finally here, and we have a tiny bit more allocation than last year. By a tiny bit, we mean we have an additional case... THis is 100% Chenin Blanc from old vines planted in Rablay-sur-Layon in 1929. Then aged in new 500 liter barrels, before further ageing in steel tanks for 6 months.
It has an incredibly intense aroma of Anjou pears, which also comes across in some of their other wines. It's surely a trademark of the region and of Bertin-Delatte. One of the most unique wines in our portfolio.
Annual Production: Less than 1,000
Blend: 100% Chenin Blanc
Terroir: Clay and Schist soil
Drinking Window: 2019-2028
Nicolas and Genevieve have a 3-hectare organic domaine near Rablay-sur-Layon. If that town’s name rings a bell it’s because together with neighbors and similarly tiny domaines GarOvin and Vins Hodgson, this Angevin crew is making some of the Loire’s most exciting wines. You may know Bertin-Delatte’s still white, L’Echalier; they make natural wines that appeal to Somms in Michelin-starred restaurants as much as the local crunchy granola types who shop at the cooperative grocery in Rablay Sur Layon.
