Story

Situation
In the Cher Valley in Touraine, near Saint-Aignan.
Terroir
The vineyards have clay and flint soil, whereas the steeper slopes have more siliceous soil with clay that is ideal for Sauvignon Blanc.
Vinification
The grapes are picked during the coolest part of the day and pressed slowly and gradually. Cold fermentation (16-18°C) follows a short maceration on the must deposit to lock in a maximum number of aromas.
Maturing
The wine is aged on the lees before bottling.
Varietals
Sauvignon : 100%

Advice

Serving
Served well-chilled (8-10°C).
Tasting notes
Scintillating pale gold colour with silver highlights. Lovely fresh fruit (tropical fruit, blackcurrant, citrus) and floral aromas. Develops beautifully on the palate with delicate white fruit (nectarine) and fresh lemony flavours. Great length with a certain minerality.
Food pairing
This wine is a treat as an aperitif with nibbles, as well as an accompaniment to delicatessen meats, salads, shrimp, quiches, goat's cheeses, and fruit salad.
