TASTING NOTES | Pale gold in colour with green highlights. Expressive nose with notes of citrus and mango. Soft and delicate on the palate at first revealing great harmony. Remarkable length with a citrusy finish. A fine, delicate wine typical of its flint-rich terroir.
VINEYARDS & WINEMAKING | The soil is composed of geological formations dating back to the Cretaceous Period.The flint-rich siliceous clay soil gives the Sauvignon Blanc grape its taste of gunflint. Environmentally friendly growing methods are adapted to suit each terroir. Following cold static settling, fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Aged on fine lees until bottling to preserve all of this wine’s freshness. Filtered only once.
