Vinous Reverie Notes
“Drinking a Saint Nicolas is not about sniffing aromas. It's more about mouthfeel, vitality, finesse and elegance, as well as mineral tension and the Atlantic breeze you can feel in all of Thierry's wines. They are silky and elegant, and never overly concentrated or too rich.” ~ Stephan Reinhardt
A blend of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay and Grolot Gris, Les Clous comes from scattered plots near the ocean on sandy schist and clay soils with quartzite gravel. Usually the first wine you taste when visiting the cellars and always accompanied by shellfish, Les Clous is mineral with a salty, iodine-like character (think of a fresh breeze off the sea) complimented with added weight and fruit from the Chardonnay.
