  • Rich aromas of grapefruit and citrus are complemented by fresh mineral notes and delicate floral highlights. Fresh and fruity on the palate it is beautifully balanced with layered notes of minerality and delicate hints of truffle which develop with age.

The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and gently crushed with a pneumatic press. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in temperature controlled tanks at low temperatures to preserve the purity of fruit and aromatics of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The wine was aged on its fine lees in stainless steel vats, with 5% aged in oak barrels for a period of six months, which imparted subtle oak complexity.

Winery

The grapes come from a single vineyard planted around the village of Morogues, in the appellation of Menetou-Salon, which is situated in the eastern part of the Loire Valley. The terroir is characterised by clay, limestone and flinty soils which impart distinctive mineral notes to the wine. The region is influenced by the northern, cool climate, resulting in lively wines from grapes with characteristic high levels of acidity. Domaine Minchin is certified by Haute Valeur Environmentale and the vineyards are managed according to a strict sustainable philosophy, known as la Lutte Raisonnee. The vineyard is planted with grass, and the soil is tilled and worked to ensure the health and vigour of the vine, while encouraging beneficial biodiversity. Debudding takes place in spring along with careful canopy management in summer, including thinning, which encourages the grapes to reach optimal ripeness and concentrates the flavours in the berries.
