Story

Situation
The Touraine vineyards is in the Cher River valley.
Terroir
The Touraine vineyards in the Cher River valley are located on hillsides with flinty clay soil and on slopes with siliceous soil and clay subsoil, where the Sauvignon Blanc grape variety expresses all its subtle complexity.
Vinification
The grapes are harvested in the coolest part of the day and pneumatic pressing releases the juice from the grapes slowly and gently. Following a short skin contact on fine lees, low-temperature fermentation (16-18°C) preserves a maximum of the varietal aromas.
Maturing
Aged on fine lees before bottling.
Varietals
Sauvignon blanc : 100%
