Denis Jamain Les Fossiles Reuilly Blanc
Denis Jamain Les Fossiles Reuilly Blanc is a very solid example of Sauvignon Blanc from the eastern Loire. It is Sancerre-like, yet with all the minerality of a good Chablis, and this can be explained as the soils here sit on the same prized kimmeridgian limestone, as is connected to Chablis. It’s high content of marine and shell fossils, dating back to the Jurassic period.
Denis Jamain Les Fossiles Reuilly Blanc is rich and mineral driven with notes of crisp apple, citrus and chamomile.
The Domaine de Reuilly is located in the heart of Reuilly in the eastern Loire, all 18 hectares of its vineyards are situated within the ‘commune’ (village). Denis Jamain inherited both vineyards and an ancient oak forest from his family, and knew he had to care for both, for future generations. Organic since 2007 and biodynamic in 2011, we are thrilled to have discovered his fine Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir wines.
The terroir here is an essential component, and all the vines are facing the south west on a 15% slope. The clay and limestone soil is littered with a profusion of sea fossils and shells from over 150 million years ago, which is the reason for name and label of these wines. Tremendously expressive and pure, Denis only uses natural fermentation, very light filtering and minimal sulphur.
