Regis et Sylvain Sauvignon Blanc - Rich, complex, goes on and on
100% Sauvignon Blanc
Born just south of Nantes, in the farming hamlet of Château-Thébaud, this wine comes from biodynamically-treated 35+ year old densely-planted vineyards grown on multilayered soils. The top layer is composed of silica and clay, sitting on a mother rock of thick granite, which impart a lovely mineral backbone to the wine. The grapes are hand-harvested, wild yeast fermented in glass-lined underground cement tanks, sit on their lees for 5 months, then bottled unfined, lightly filtered, and lightly sulfured for stability. The result is a rich, complex deliciously refreshing wine that coats the mouth and goes on and on and on.
