VinificationThis wine is made out of a selection of parcels from within the district of Saint Romain sur Cher, and planted in limestone – a soil type fully highlighting Sauvignon’s aromas. After pressing, a pre-fermentative maceration provides fat and complexity. The fermentation is carried out in thermo-regulated vats and followed by a long maturing period on lees – a procedure whereby the wine is protected from oxygen up until bottling. The wine matures for 10 months.
