2016 La Porte Saint Jean “La Perlée” VDF Chenin Blanc, Loire Valley, France
Sylvain Dittière learnt the ropes with influential winemakers: from Gauby to Thierry Germain, Château Yvonne and finally Clos Rougeard. It’s therefore natural that this talented producer – son-in-law of the late Charly Foucauld – set up shop in 2011 in Montreuil-Bellay. He chose the domain for its very cool cellars, ideal for long élevages. He makes red and white wines which showcase the purity of his fruit and masterful élevages.
