Producer Note
Domaines Minchin is located in the heart of the Loire Valley. Having studied oenology
at Beaune and Dijon, Bertrand Minchin acquired his first vineyards in the village of
Morogues over 20 years ago, planting them with eight hectares of Sauvignon Blanc
and seven of Pinot Noir. Today with an established reputation for quality, the estate has
doubled in size to 17 hectares in Menetou-Salon and a further 14 in Valençay. The
modern winery incorporates the latest technology and Bertrand is hand-crafting awardwinning wines that are on a par with the finest Sancerre.
Vineyard
Valençay became an AOC appellation in 2003 and is situated in the eastern part of
the Loire Valley, approximately 60 miles west of Sancerre. The terroir is characterised by
clay, limestone and flinty soils which impart the distinctive mineral characters 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 raisonnée. 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.
Winemaking
The grapes were harvested at optimal maturity and gently crushed with a pneumatic
press. Fermentation took place with selected yeasts in temperature controlled tanks
and winemaker Bertrand ensured the temperatures remained low to preserve the purity
of fruit and aromatics of the Sauvignon Blanc grape. The wine was aged in vats on its
lees for five to six months to impart texture and complexity.
Tasting Note
Bright aromas of citrus zest, peach and pear are complemented by hints of eucalyptus
and a distinctive minerality. Refreshing and beautifully balanced, with citrus and floral
notes leading a long, elegant finish.
