Chateau Teyssier Clos Nardian Saint Aubin de Branne 750ml 2010    
Sku: 1819928*

The tiny vineyard that makes up Clos Nardian nestles next to the Mairie in the leafy village of Saint Aubin de Branne, just south of Saint Emilion. Fully south facing and situated along a ledge of clay over a sub-soil of limestone, the vineyard consists of forty per cent each of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. These fifty-year-old vines are planted in the classic Saint Emilion style of one and a half metre rows. The addition of twenty per cent of seventy-year-old Muscadelle to the wine provides aroma. The hands-on approach to the wine incorporates green harvesting, very low crops three bunches of grapes to a vine, and soft whole bunch pressing in a pneumatic press. Once in brand new French Oak the lees are continually put in suspension to plump up the wine. Only ten barrels are made each year but the result? A massive, broadly structured, multi-layered and atypical dry white wine with great minerality, length and individuality.
