Our Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely pale colour. It is rich and aromatic with intense scents of fruit (gooseberry, passion fruit, green tomatoe, wild strawberry and lemon). It also displays floral nuances (honeysuckle), and mineral «flinty» scents from the limestone soil. It is very fresh on the palate with a good acidity and a touch of refreshing bitterness in the finish.
Serve well chilled (8°C), as an apéritif, with seafood, fish or summer dishes.
Suggestion : The Sauvignon is perfect for apéritif, to taste with finger food !
This Sauvignon blanc is cultivated on limestone soils of the Gard département, in the plains of the Hérault, the Aude Valley. A part of the blend comes also from the region around Limoux, that gives acidity and freshness. The vines are pruned according to the «Cordon de Royat» method (trellised) and yields are controlled, around 40 and 50hl/ha
Grapes are harvested early in the morning and transported rapidly to the winery. Pressing is made after a short skin maceration (8hours). The alcoholic fermentation took place in stainless steel vats at 15 to 18°C. Then, the wine is aged on its fine lees for a few months at low temperature in a carbon dioxide atmosphere. No malolactic fermentation. Early bottling.
