AOC Touraine is a well-known appellation of the Loire valley wine region, close to the famous châteaux of Chambord and Chenonceau. Sauvignon Blanc is the dominant grape in this region. The area's maritime influence brings freshness and aromatic intensity to the wines.
Maison Castel know-how
The Maison Castel winemakers work with a long-term, Terra Vitis-certified partner, closely following the ripening process. Vinification is carried out according to strict guidelines: the different terroirs are vinified separately to optimise the potential of each. Alcoholic fermentation takes place at controlled temperature to encourage the aromatic expression typical of the various grape varieties and terroirs. The wines are then aged on lees for 3 – 4 months to give them a fresh, fruity character with finesse and roundness.
