Description

In 1935,  Camille Rousseau, Denis Jamain’s maternal grandfather, moved to Reuilly and planted his first Sauvignon Blanc vines there.  The Reuilly vineyard was classified as a Controlled Appellation of Origin for its whites as early as 1937, one year after the establishment of the appellations system at the national level and in 1961 for its reds from Pinot noir and rosés from Pinot gris.  At the beginning of the 90s, Denis Jamain decided out of a passion for the vineyard to take over the torch and acquire a beautiful set of plots on the commune of Reuilly, a real starting point for the development of the estate.
After leading the farm in reasoned control for many years, he converted to organic farming in 2007 (certified by Veritas) and biodynamic in 2011 (certified by Demeter).
Domaine Denis Jamain comprises four main places: Les Coignons, Les Pierres Plates, Les Chatillons, Les Conges, on which are planted 12 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc, 5 hectares of Pinot noir and 4 hectares of Pinot gris.

Produced from 100% Sauvignon Blanc from 20 year old vines,  cultivated on limestone-clay soil on a bio-dynamic plot. the grapes are hand-picked and fermented in stainless steel with natural yeasts. The colour is pale gold with aromas of citrus and white flowers, a superb depth of flavour on the palate with peach and tangerine beautifully balanced with a soft but precise minerality and lovely fresh finish.

 

Exceptionally good with Seafood, Shellfish, Poultry, Creamy Soft Cheeses.
