Origin

The Bordeaux AOC is one of the largest, and certainly one of the most famous, wine regions in France. The Sauvignon Blanc is the main white grape variety grown in the Bordeaux region and is used in the production of dry white wines. Very aromatic and mineral, it gives the wine powerful aromas.

Vinification

100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Very short skin maceration which varies according to the vintages and the grapes used in order to extract aromatic potential without adversely affecting the quality of the musts. Temperature-controlled alcoholic fermentation is used to preserve the wine’s varietal and aromatic qualities along with its structure and length.
