Another winner, and a sell out. Silex displays its superiority in a vintage like 2014. This is viscous, concentrated and true to the vineyard. More flesh in 2014 while your racey 2012 calms.

93 points, Bob Sprentall, B-21 Proprietor (Jun 2015)

The Janviers rent sixty-six different parcels (a total of nine hectares) of land and farm it entirely themselves. Their “Cuvée du Silex” parcel has distinct flint in the soil, lending notes of gunpowder to this beautiful, crisp Chenin. There is no doubt that Pascal and Dominique have chosen the path less traveled, though at the first sip of their wine, one understands why they keep working so hard.
