  • A crisp and refreshing Sauvignon Blanc with delicate aromas of exotic fruit, citrus notes and a hint of white floral blossom. Lovely and textured on the palate with a mouthwatering finish.

The grapes were pressed and the juice underwent cold static settling for 48 hours. Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks with selected yeasts lasting two to three weeks. The wine was then aged on the fine lees for six to nine months to impart texture and complexity. This cuvée was vinified without the influence of oak, allowing the pure fruit flavours to be fully expressed.

Winery

The grapes come from the appellation of Menetou-Salon, which is situated in the eastern part of the Loire Valley. The terroir is characterised by marl sediments dating from the Jurassic period, which is known locally as Marne de Saint Doulchard. The region is influenced by the northern, cool climate, resulting in lively wines from grapes with characteristic high levels of acidity. Domaine Gerard Millet is certified by Haute Valeur Environmentale and the vineyards are managed sustainably. The vineyard is carefully monitored throughout the season; the soil is tilled to bring out the distinctive features of the terroir and ensure the health and vigour of the vine, while encouraging beneficial biodiversity. Careful canopy management takes place including leaf thinning, which encourages the grapes to reach optimal ripeness and concentrates the flavours in the berries.
