About The Wine

Eric Nicolas began his professional career as an engineer. 

In the early 1990s he made the brave decision with his wife Christine to make the sea change (or vine change, as it were) and begin a new life as a committed vigneron.

They packed up their life and moved to the Loire Valley where land for growing grapes was more modestly priced. They settled on a small plot in Jasnières and began to plant Chenin Blanc in 1995. Today, they craft fifty parcels over the five communes of Lhomme, Ruillé-sur-Loir, Chahaignes, Marçon and Dissay-sous-Courcillon.

This is their Jasnières - a sleek, crisp, intense example of Chenin Blanc that will age gracefully for many years. It's a tight, finely-etched example of the variety. A lovely example of why this producer is considered amongst the most formidable producers of Chenin Blanc in the Loire.

Critic Reviews

DDS review

"2017 Jasnières 'Les Rosiers' is a dry wine in this excellent but cruel vintage where frost wiped out most of the harvest. Aromatically expansive with citrus, orchard fruits and hints of white flowers. The structure is graceful, fine and slender, with a balance based on great freshness and an exquisite line of acidity neatly woven throughout. In the mouth this is a striking wine, attractively fruit-filled but slender and graceful it is very expressive and it charms the palate with its purity. Seriously top." - Andrew Guard, importer

No our pricing is aiming to the best in the market already. For very large orders (weddings etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call. How does the price match work?

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.
