"Le Clos des Carteries" Cheverny Rouge 2020
Christian Venier’s vineyards are located in the eastern section of Touraine, in Cheverny at the corner of Sologne south of Bois. He honed his natural winemaking skills under his cousin Theirry & Jean-Marie Puzelat of Clos du Tue Boeuf. Christian is a farmer akin to his ancestors, farming with the land organically his approximately 6 hectares of vineyards, planted with Pinot Noir, Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Pineau d’Aunis, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Menu Pineau, and Chenin Blanc grown on a variety of silica and clay, some with gravel and stones. He remains a staunch non-interventionist with regards to his wines allowing natural fermentation, under a loose-fitting cap, to occur while making use of resin-fiberglass, stainless steel, cement and oak, all in large format and never with additions or subtractions. His aim is to create wines with minerality and structure while maintaining the natural feel of the wine that the vine itself provides.
