Argos - 2016 - Guillaume Sorbe

Nose: citrus fruits, white flowers, exotic fruits. Palate: lovely volume, richness with just the right amount of tension, plus aromatic finesse, beautiful minerality and great salty length... Our absolute favourite, a true Sauvignon for gastronomy.

100% Sauvignon, from vines farmed biodynamically (though not certified), and planted on sandy and gravelly alluvial soils in the Quincy appellation. Wild flowers for pollinators and grass grow between the rows to compete with the vines and boost biodiversity. Vine training directs the plants skyward, and grapes are harvested with small crates. Vinification: direct pressing, cold settling, each parcel is matured separately in vats or 400- and 600-litre casks that have seen several wines. 18 months of maturation then blending, with little sulphur.

Guillaume Sorbe

Guillaume Sorbe is part of a generation of winegrowers who work modestly, rigorously, and unrelentingly – and produce simply exceptional wines. After starting out as a cook, then a sommelier, he finally turned to winemaking, receiving his BTS degree in winemaking and viticulture in Beaune. This winegrower's son then founded his own estate in 2006, borrowing his great-grandmother's maiden name...
