Domaine de Reuilly Les Chênes

Light & Easy Red

Organic, Sustainable

Pinot Noir

France/Loire Valley

It’s always nice when you discover a brilliant winemaker who is ‘under the radar’. This isn’t to say that Denis Jamain of Domaine de Reuilly doesn’t have a profile. Any winemaker who’s imported by Kermit Lynch in the US already has a seal of approval from the ‘top table’. It’s just that he, his estate, the appellation of Reuilly and the region Central Loire are all either little-known or confused with other regions. Les Chênes, which is aged in 225 liter barrels, is very rich and structured, has silky tannins and amazingly well integrated wood.
