A nose with notes of white flowers and sugared almonds... Palate: a delicate juice, clean and fresh, with beautiful intensity, and lovely bitter notes on the finish. To be paired asap with a goat cheese, preferably dry.

A 100% Sauvignon cuvée, from 30 to 45-year-old vines grown organically and biodynamically, certified since 2012. The vines are pruned using Guyot technique and planted on a plateau and hillsides, on limestone soils. Manual harvest with yields around 40 hl/ha. Vinification: the grapes are destemmed, direct pressed, and matured in vats. Slight sulphiting at bottling.
Paul Fouassier, who earned his viticulture and oenology degree in 1998, worked in several leading Bordeaux châteaux (Pavie and Angelus among others) before returning to his large family estate in 2001. The estate holds 60 hectares, 50 ha of Sauvignon and 10 ha of Pinot, which he manages with his cousin Benoît. The duo represents the 10th generation, drawing the best from the rigour of Benoît...All wines
