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.

Domaine Alain Gueneau's estate covers 15 hectares of sloping hills located in Sury-en-Vaux, Sancerre and Chavignol in the Loire Valley.

A beautiful family-owned estate, Alain inherited the winery from his parents and now runs it with his daughter, who is eager to carry on the family brand. Their passion shows in their unique wines.
