"Rambunctious chive, savory and thyme notes sprint to the lead while lemon pulp and gooseberry fruit flavors chase from behind. A steely, flinty edge adds cut and length on the finish, leaving a mouthwatering feel. Drink now through 2021. 700 cases made. -JM " (WS)

"From steeply sloping, well-exposed vineyards in the village of Chavignol, this wine is concentrated and still young. With its intense green and citrus fruits, strong herbal character and spice, it is rich and impressive. It is a wine for further aging, so don't drink before 2020." (WE)

Winery Notes:
100% Sauvignon Blanc

This cuvée comes from soils of kimmeridgian marls, recognizable for clusters of comma shaped small fossilized oyster shells (ostrea virgula) from the slopes of Chavignol.

After pressing, the juice is allowed 2 days of natural clarification by sedimentation. Fermentation occurs in both barrel and tank for complexity. The wine is racked and bottled in accordance with the lunar cycle.
