Nadège Lelandais is at *least* an iconoclast, and maybe *also* a kind of sorceress. She farms a postage-stamp sized plot of land in Anjou (biodynamically), and the star of the show may be her 100-year-old Chenin Blanc vines. A multi-vintage iteration of La Pointe is a blend of 2016, whose fermentation couldn't rev into gear, and 2017, which was used to restart the slow and contemplative 2016. (We told you she was different!) The resultant wine is textural, dry, and incredibly compelling. Notes of round pear, sea breeze, citrus pith, and wet stones. A bottle worth drinking slowly over a long winter's night, to watch it as it evolves.
