The passionate and innovative young winemaker Pascal Cuisset owns this beautiful Dordogne estate, south west of the town of Bergerac. Made from a blend of Sauvignon and Semillon matured `sur lie`, his dry white Bergerac is full and fruity.
This wine from Domaine des Echardieres is a crisp and refreshing Sauvignon from Touraine, with ripe citrus fruits, baked apple and blackcurrant leaf. The wine has mouthwatering acidity, while six months lees ageing lends weight on the mid palate following through to a mineral finish.
This Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay blend from the Loire, is pale lemon in colour with a lovely grassy, citrus nose showing plenty of zesty Sauvignon Blanc aroma. On the palate, the affect of stirring the juice regularly, has paid off with richness and body, great balance with racy acidity that is rounded out by the richer Chardonnay.
BEST SELLER The Sauvignon Blanc grape excels in this rich, flinty soil, giving a crisp edge to the wine`s natural richness. This single vineyard Sancerre has the added complexity of mineral and herbaceous flavours on the palate. The immense long flavour of gooseberries and blackcurrant leaves lingers on the finish.
The 3 hectare estate which produces this wine is located in Cars, close to Blaye and the bank of the Gironde River. Certified Demeter Biodynamic, great effort is put into producing this wine in as natural a way as possible, the result is low sulphites and a vegan friendly wine with lots of character.
Grown in this northern climate and on the stone\flint plateau overlooking the Loire River this is a classic example of cracking winemaking and low yielding Sauvignon Blanc vines producing fantastic grapes. This dry white displays a classic smokey, lime and mineral influenced flavour reflective of the region`s flinty soils.
Owned by the incomparable Henri Bourgeois this show piece estate is renowned for being a top quality producer of both Pouilly Fume and Sancerre and has collected a bundle of awards and medals over the last decade or so.
The young and dynamic François Crochet has made wines in New Zealand and Bordeaux, and now uses his broad experience wisely. To make Sancerre that measures with the best of the appellation, Francois pays a great deal of attention to the quality of his grapes.
This Sancerre comes from the oldest vines on the estate. These are planted on pebble rich clay-limestone slopes known locally as "caillottes". The wine was fermented and aged in oak barrels (30% new oak) Fermentation lasts 2 to 7 months and the wine is aged for 20 months.
This Pouilly-Fume is the flagship wine from the wine making dynasty Mellot family, 30 year old vines of Sauvignon Blanc have been slow fermented in French Oak. Oak is well integrated with the wine so it is still a racy style like its neighbour Sancerre across the Loire River. A wine adventure for Sauvignon Blanc lovers of the Marlborough style !
A blend of Semillon and Sauvignon produced by Chateau Valandraud. Virginie is the second wine of the estate and such represents a more approachable style. The Virginie de Valandraud Blanc has aromas of orchard fruit, citrus peels and white flowers with a touch of spice.
