100% SAUVIGNON BLANC FROM THE LOIRE VALLEY!

"With fermentation from wild yeasts, this wine is ripe, full in the mouth and packed with citrus and yellow fruits. Soft texture and richness make for a full-bodied wine that is ready to drink. -Roger Voss" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Situation:
Limestone-clay (Kimmeridgian marls) soils. Exposure to the South-South-West

Vinification:
The grapes are received via gravity, sorted, then the whole-berries are pneumatically pressed. Cold stabilization, indigenous yeasts to ensure a spontaneous fermentation in thermo-regulated inox tanks, maturation on the fine lees, then bottled from spring onwards.

Tasting Notes:
A remarkable Sauvignon character, citrus and passion fruit, allying freshness and an exceptional length in the mouth. Serve chilled, it will be marvelous with fish and sea food. Drink young.
