Jasnieres Clos Saint Jacques Domaine Gigou 2015

Member Review by duncan 906:

I bought this bottle of wine from a shop in Wiltshire [www.yapp.co.uk] for £15. Jasnieres is an appellation created in 1937,although there has been viticulture here for centuries,for sweet or dry white wines made of the chenin blanc grape from two communes,L'homme and Ruille-sur-Loir, in the Loir valley.The Loir [without an 'e'] is a northern tributary of the Loire [with an 'e'] Domaine Gigou is a small family producer in this area.My wine is made from 70 year old vines in the Clos Saint Jacques vineyard and spent a year in oak barrels I started my bottle the other evening with my supper of fishcakes. It is a dry and acidic wine. There is plenty of a grapefruit,apricot and apple style fruit with a hint of vanilla. This is a wine with plenty of flavour. Bland it is not. It was a good match for the fishcakes
