Domaine Ecu ‘Janus’ Chardonnay, Loire, France, White
DEMETER Biodynamic and ECOCERT organic certified. No added sulphur.
What a smart wine! Biodynamically DEMETRE certified since 1998 with organic practises since 1975, this ‘Janus’ chardonnay is minimal intervention at its best. Spontaneous and naturally fermentated from the indigenous yeast on the grapes and within the microflora of the winery, it is matured for 9 months in concrete tanks, then bottled with minimal filtering to retain the vineyard character. No added sulphur, no added anything – a true expression of vineyard to bottle. Brioche complexity with balanced acidity, Janus matches beautifully with Bantry bay seafood, mushroom dishes and stinky cheese.
