Jean-Pierre Robinot - Bistrologie
The Bistrologie from Jean-Pierre Robinot is a beautifully-crafted, classic expression of the Loire Valley's favourite grape variety, namely Chenin Blanc. The grapes are harvested from very healthy vines that have benefitted from not having been sprayed with herbicides or pesticides that degrade the soil.
It has power and finesse simultaneously - something that is not easy for a winemaker to do.
The time it has spent in old wooden barrels has softened it and given it a pleasing roundness. The finish on this wine is incredibly long.
