Presentation

The wine
Sail up the Loire River, on a "gabare" - a local type of boat - meandering through the vineyards and discovering our wines: "Vallée Loire" is a group of wines that act as ambassadors for the Loire Valley AOP, marked by their character, freshness, and approachability.
Situation
The vines are located north of Poitiers, on the Neuville Plain, with soil dating back to the Jurassic period.
Terroir
Although the topography is fairly flat, the vines grow on small rises consisting largely of limestone rocks. The superb clay-limestone soil is conducive to growing excellent ripe grapes. This cuvée is the result of a rigorous selection in the vineyard – a traditional Sauvignon Blanc combining aromatic intensity, freshness, and elegance.
Vinification
Direct pressing. After a low temperature settling, the clear juice ferments for 12 to 14 days at 18°C maximum, in order to preserve the aromas.
Maturing
Aged on fine lees before bottling.
Varietals
Sauvignon : 100%
