Geneviève Delatte & Nicolas Bertin

L' Échalier 2016

An immensely textural chenin from one of the most prestigious postcodes in the Loire. Geneviève Delatte and Nicolas Bertin eschew additions of any kind in the cellar by allowing their wines time for long elevages in barrels. During that time the Echalier develops a dense, almost-oily, mineral-rich character, punctuated by an incredibly long, satisfying and silky finish.

Producer

Geneviève Delatte & Nicolas Bertin
Rablay-sur-Layon, Loire, France

A bright young couple making wine in Rablay-sur-Layon in the Loire, Delatte & Bertin have dedicated themselves to the production of exceptional wines farmed organically. The pair seem to prefer the classics, reflected largely in their wine and exemplified by their restrained, but present, use of new oak. The wines they produce are clean, precise, and quite gastronomic, favouring broader, more cellar-worthy styles of chenin.
