    Winemaker's Notes:

    Grape Type: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

    Vinification: Grapes come from 20 acres in 3 separate vineyards owned by Pascal Jolivet in the villages of Tracy, Les Girarmes, and St. Andelain; and additional sourcing from Les Loges. These constitute a large diversity of glacial soils, differing from village to village. Les Loges: very calcareous. Full, firm wines. Saint Andelain: clay-siliceous and siliceous. Provide fruit, bouquet. Tracy sur Loire: sandy and limestone base. Delicacy, aromatics.

    Vinification is very traditional slow fermentation (6-8 weeks) with natural yeasts and no malolactic. The wine is left on the lees for a minimum of 4-6 months. Bottled between May and September.

    Tasting Notes: Pale straw in color. Piquant, minerally, austere, and very clean nose. The palate is open, fresh, and direct, with ripe fruit flavor. Clean biting finish; very youthful; minerally flavors resurface.

    Food Match: sushi, shellfish, pork, fish, Asian cuisine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    This is round and ripe, veering towards tropical flavors of papaya and mandarin orange. There's a grapefruit bite of acidity on the finish that holds it together, providing freshness and verve.
