Having studied winemaking and viticulture at Montreuil, Nicolas Reau made the decision to follow his passion for wine, rather than pursue a career in his other field of interest, music, where he was an established and blues pianist.
Nowadays, rather than scales and arpeggios, he focusses on soil-types and wild yeasts, both critical elements in his quest to produce Chenin Blanc that best represents the unique terroir of Anjou.From clay-limestone soils, his ‘Anjou Blanc’ displays incredible minerality, backed up by bags of fresh fruit, the natural flavours of which are allowed to shine through thanks to Nicolas’ minimal intervention winemaking approach.
