Sauvignon Blanc is the key grape variety of the Touraine appellation. A continental climate, a combination of cold winters and warm summers paired with a clay-limestone soil allow the perfectly healthy grapes used for this cuvée.

The grapes are gently pressed, then the must settled up to 24 hours. The fermentation started in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is bottled in March to preserve the characteristic vibrancy of the Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Note: The nose offers up aromas of nettle, lemon rind and a hint of yellow plum, while the medium-bodied palate is dry and mineral and refreshing.
