Coulee de Serrant

Coulee de Serrant

Exclusively owned by the Joly family, the Coulée de Serrant vineyard is only 7 hectares in size and avails of its own Appellation Controlee. The vineyard was planted in 1130 by Cistercian monks and today consists of vines aged from 35 to 80 years old. 

Always considered as a rare and unique product, the Coulée de Serrant was celebrated by Louis XI and Louis XIV as one of the best French white wines. Louis XI is said to have nicknamed it 'a drop of gold'. 


Today the estate continues to be known for its outstanding wines but is also known for its current custodians - Nicolas Joly - the godfather of biodynamics and his daughter Virginie. Since 1984, the entire estate has been cultivated using biodynamic farming methods. The vineyard is cultivated partly by hand and partly by horse because of the steep slopes overlooking the Loire.
