Story

Since about 1890, four generations of the Gaudron family have lived and cultivated vines in Vernou, running a vineyard that covers 25 hectarese. The Domain is built on a limestone-clay soil which rests on a sub-layer of tuffeau, the elegant stone used to build the Chateaux for which the region is so renowned.

Vineyard

The vines were purchased in 2012, stretching over 1.2 hectares and tended to using organic practices. The vineyards are situated on a hillside on the heights of Vernou in Brenne. The plot is composed of clayey limestone soil and vines of on average 40 years old.

Vinification

Destemming, pneumatic pressing, static settling of the must at low temperature during 24h. Fermentation at the cellar temperature during 1 month, 1/3 of the maturation in oak barrels during 6 months and 2/3 of the maturation in vats. Two rackings, stirring once a week during 1 month and filtration.

Tasting Notes

Dry white wine with a thin yellow color and golden tint. This wine has a bouquet of white flesh fruits (quince) and flowers (acacia). Supple and long in the palate, it is a very refreshing wine for summer.

Food Pairing

Perfect with fish, shellfish, scallops, lobster, white meats and apple pie.
