Touraine Sauvignon Blanc "Opus de Loire"


The story
This Loire cuvee is the pure and magnificent expression of Touraine Sauvignon style. This wine has been thought as a masterpiece.
The Sauvignon old vines are located on the best slopes in the Cher department.
It is the expression of a hidden potential and beautiful clay-limestone terroir where the grapes are picked perfectly ripe.
Control of the ripeness, tasting of berries to harvest the best aromatic grapes (crystallised fruit aromas). Maceration on skins during 12hours, slow pressing and light racking of the must to conserve the aromatic potential. Fermentation at controlled temperatures (17-19°C).
The wine is aged for 8 to 10 months on fine lees, with regular stirring, before bottling in July.
Sauvignon blanc : 100%


Serve slightly chilled (12-13°C).
Tasting notes
Beautiful golden colour. Exuberant nose with a quintessence of spices, citrus confit, exotic fruits (pineapple, mango), empyreumatic notes and a subtle mineral taste. Fleshy and voluminous palate, well balanced between softness and freshness. Potent and smooth finish.
Food and wine pairings
This Loire white wine goes perfectly with fish dishes (such as fish from the Loire in a white butter sauce), as well as goat's cheese and white meats.
