from the importer: "les Choisilles is a cuvée, usually blended from old vines in the vineyards of Les Epinais, La Taille aux Loups and Clos au Renard. It’s named after a type of black flint called (you guessed it) choisille. Les Choisilles is a concentrated, focused dry wine that often needs several years to develop."
Julien Vedel is second-in-command to Phillipe Foreau of Domaine du Clos Naudin. This, his personal micro-domain of .2 hectares produces only 2 barrels per year from 90-year-old vines grown in a choicest section of Vouvray. Horse-ploughed, vinified with no malo in 50% new / 50% 10-year-old barrels.
importer Grand Cru: "'Jesera' translates to 'little lake' in Slovenian and the name of the wine is a reference to the vineyard being at the bottom of a valley next to a stream. The Pinot Grigio's color comes from a prolonged maceration, some vintages up to 24 hours. Around 10% of wine is aged in large barrels (20-27 hectoliter) with the rest in stainless steel."
