Claude Papin is a philosopher of the vineyard. It is approaching organic viticulture, but its wines have always been fermented with indigenous yeasts. Aging for 50% of the grapes in barrique, remaining in steel for this chenin blanc really essential. Claude Papin's Chateau Pierre Bise uses only one, Chenin Blanc, the undisputed king of this region. From its vinification classic methods are born, that is cremant, dry wines like this Haute de la Garde, up to sweet or even sweet wines. Their common denominator is pleasantness, but combined with a body structure that is never banal.

Three Senses
Golden yellow color, with almost orange reflections on the nose is complex and well balanced. An almost sweet finish is perceived and immediately followed by the typical hint of Botrytis Cinerea. On the palate the structure of the wine is impressive, full of notes of exotic fruit and honey supported by an excellent freshness that make it very pleasant. You may be surprised to find a palatable tannic depth to support its clean, honeyed richness. You will be surprised at first, but you will discover that it works. The part of botrytis guarantees an interesting development. Excellent on noble fish.

The territory:

A priority for Claude is the search for the maximum mineral expression of the terroir, which he pursues with meticulous application in the vineyard. His deep knowledge of the theories of his neighbour Nicolas Joly and his friend Jean-Michel Deiss does not prevent him from creating his own theories and experimenting them in the vineyard, with qualitative results that speak for themselves. Regarding the plant defence, Claude avoids insecticides and relies on seaweed, pine oil and organic compounds. Once Claude Papin starts explaining you his research for «aromatic polyphony» or that «the personality of a wine is linked to the slow evolution of its polyphenols», then you understand that you are dealing with a rather sophisticated mind. This, of course, would mean nothing if the wines were disappointing, but the fact is that Papin produces some of the greatest Chenin Blanc and Gamay not only in the Loire, but in France. Another of Papin's convictions about Chenin is that «once it was a red grape» - and he belongs to that French avant-garde that thoroughly macerates the skins of white grapes in order to extract tannins which, he claims, help give wines longevity. Papin is certainly the greatest winegrower in the «Jardin de la France» and the good news is that he and his sons René and Christophe have 54 hectares to work.
