Made by Domaine Pierre Angier, a small family run winery of several generations, this is a delightful, beautifully packaged unoaked expression of Loire Sauvignon Blanc that delivers plenty of character for the price.
Sauvignon Blanc is the key grape variety of the Touraine appellation. A continental climate, a combination of cold winters and warm summers paired with a clay-limestone soil allow the perfectly healthy grapes used for this cuvée.
The grapes are gently pressed, then the must settled up to 24 hours. The fermentation started in temperature-controlled stainless steel vats. The wine is bottled in March to preserve the characteristic vibrancy of the Sauvignon Blanc.
