Symbolic of the Loire Valley, the Sauvignon Blanc is a grape which is particularly fond of temperate climate. Grown in clay-limestone soil, it shows a beautiful balance between liveliness, smoothness and aromatic power.
The grapes are pressed within 3 hours of harvesting. After settling for 12 to 24 hours, the must is placed in stainless steel, temperature controlled tanks, where fermentation takes place at between 15 and 20°C. At the end of fermentation, the first racking is carried out to remove the first lees. They begin bottling in the spring, following blending, clarification and stabilization treatments.
This wine is complex and elegant with a typical character of white flowers and boxwood on the nose. It is fruity on entry to the palate, where it is fresh and well-balanced. This wine possesses elegance and personality.
This Sauvignon will pair well with a seafood salad, shellfish, white meat and goat cheeses.
