Origin

This Sauvignon Blanc is designated a Côtes de Gascogne Protected Geographical Indication wine. Gascony is characterized by its temperate oceanic climate and is this aromatic grape variety’s preferred region as it enables it to reach optimal maturity. Its terroir endows the ripe grapes with lovely acidity reflected in the nice taut, fresh character of the wines.

Vinification

100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Chilling of the harvested grapes and protection from oxydation. Direct pressing with stabulation depending on the must, followed by a low temperature static settling. Fermentation is carried out between 16-18° in order to bring out the wine’s thiolated and exotic aromas. Ageing of the wine on the fine lees for around 2 months.
