This limited production cuvee is made from older vines growing on "caillottes" soils in the village of Chavignol, one of the best terroir in the Sancerre region.
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc, the wine is aged in stainless steel tank for 8 months.
Colour: Pale yellow with gold-grey tint and lovely brilliance
Nose: Bright and crisp, with aromas of citrus, white flower, green apples and peach.
Palate: Vigorous, with an excellent freshness, balance and a lingering citrus finish.
Fantastic with seafood and poultry dishes and as an aperitif.
