About the Wine

Another year means another exciting new cuvée from Jérôme. Once again, this wine is different from its predecessors and is made up of a wild blend of Grolleau, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc – a category defying red/white blend giving us the best of both worlds. Biclir is light and fragrant, showing touch more tannin and green fruit than previous cuvées, though still lithe and bloody with some pretty floral aromatics floating from the glass. 

As always with Jérôme’s wines, this is positively bursting with character and energy. Unconventional, unique, daring - totally fantastic stuff that is an absolute joy to drink. This one ticks all the boxes for exciting, rare and riveting, so it goes without saying there isn't much to go around. 

About Jerome Saurigny

Jérôme began making wine in 2007 on hills around the Layon river which runs into the Loire a few kilometers from the domaine. After learning to make wine on a fairly commercial level Jérôme, under the influence of Babass and Pat Desplats from Domaine des Griottes, decided to make wine in the most natural way he could – he works his Chenin, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet vines without using chemicals and makes wine without adding a single thing.
