Cuvée presentation

Are you familiar with Olivier Lejeune’s domaine in Anjou called Clos des Plantes? It is a fairly young domaine, with vines spanning only several hectares, cultivated using knowledge forged in particular by a ten-year experience in the heart of the renowned Felton Road domaine in New Zealand. Impressed by the “natural” work of Mark Angeli (Ferme de la Sansonnière), Lejeune is committed to a respectful, ecological cultivation process. He produces a very surprising white wine here with an aromatic exuberance. Exotic hints of mango can be detected, as well as plum such as the mirabelle. Fruity, complex and with an invigorating freshness, it catches many enthusiasts off guard. This Chenin can readily be appreciated in and of itself, to understand what a natural wine is, but will also have pride of place at the table with dishes such as poultry with yellow fruit, a regional goat’s cheese oven-roasted in honey, or a rump of veal cooked in the Anjou style.

Information about domain Clos des Plantes Olivier Lejeune

Established at the heart of Anjou's Coteaux de Layon, Olivier Lejeune learnt the tricks of the trade for ten years at Felton Road, the famous Central Otago domain in New Zealand that never ceases to impress critics. In 2017, he met Mark Angeli of Ferme de la Saisonnière, a fervent advocate of natural wines. This learning experience was followed by a meeting with a regional star, Richard Leroy, from whom Olivier purchased a few parcels. He brought a second burst of life to the vines, having spent a whole year working the 3 hectares with a pickaxe. In terms of the soils, this is a superb terroir where we find schist veined with quartz and volcanic rock. The land is treated with eco-friendly principles in mind. His first cuvée, Poësis, is a pure Chenin that saw immediate success, much like the 100% Cabernet Franc Pelo cuvée. You won't want to miss a single vintage!
