"Light, bright pink. Intense, mineral-accented aromas and flavors of redcurrant, pomegranate and white flowers, with a spicy overtone. Dry and incisive, with zero excess fat and excellent finishing clarity. This uncompromising, pure pink wine is ridiculously easy to drink." (07/12)
"Certified Biodynamic property since 1995. 15 to 25-year-old vines planted on clay and schist soils on slight slopes with southwest exposure. Bio-mechanical and manual hoeing (see the photo of Thierry with the horse-pulled hoe!). Vines are treated with biodynamic preparations, spraying with Bordeaux mixture and herb treatments only. Harvest is completely by hand, with manual sorting on stemming table. After pneumatic pressing, and careful selection of juices, wines are cold settled. Fermentation is completely natural (no yeast or added sugar) and the wine is aged in stainless steel tanks." -Importer
"For Thierry Michon, the gregarious force behind one of the Loire's best-kept secrets, Domaine Saint Nicolas, it's all about the soil. Working on schist and silex a stone's throw away from the Atlantic, Thierry is the prophet of biodynamics in this tiny viticultural area. His vineyards never see a non-organic product. He has slowly purchased buffer zones all around his property to prevent chemical products from other winemakers from seeping into his parcels. For him, biodynamics isn't a pragmatic consideration, it's a religion. Domaine Saint Nicolas sits at the extreme southern end of the Loire delta, just south of Muscadet, but there is no Melon de Bourgogne planted here. Instead, Thierry works old vines of Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, Groslot, Pinot Noir, Negrette, and Cabernet Franc."
"One of the few in the area to age in barrel, Thierry's years of hard work are starting to pay off. For years he worked all week in the vines and then took off on Friday afternoons for the 5 hour drive to Paris. From the back of his truck he sold his wines to restaurants and small shops. When the wines starting showing up on the lists of Guy Savoy, Taillevent, and Arpege, people starting paying attention. Now he is a leader of the biodynamics movement in France, the defender of his little appellation, and one of France's most respected winemakers. These are soulful wines of amazing purity."-Importer
