Tasting Notes 

Inviting aromas of lemongrass complicated by wet stone and wild yeast. The bright core of lichee and sweet yellow bell pepper is wrapped in flinty minerals. Refreshing, well structured and appealingly balanced, this Sauvignon Blanc has a long, leesy aftertaste.

Vineyards: Locations known as “Les Chasseignes” are common-place in the Sancerre appellation. This local name designates Caillottes soil: shallow limestone soil and subsoil containing overlapping stones. The vines are located at Les Chasseignes, to the north-east of the village of Sury-en-Vaux at an altitude of 270 metres. The vines are south-east exposed and so receive the sun and wind from morning to evening.

Viniification: It takes place in stainless steel vats (50%) and barrels (50%) for 7 to 8 months, followed by bottling in spring.

Best served with: On its own or with grilled fish.
