This cuvée is a blend with two type of soils. The “Terres Blanches”, that gives complexity represents 70% of the blend. The expression and the mineral side are from Caillottes based vineyards.At first, the bouquet is discreet. Then it opens on aromas of white fruits. The mouth is ample and perfumed. Enjoy as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to fish and selfish or white meats and cheeses.

A Sancerre with Style & Verve

Sauvignon Blanc is grown all over the world with wildly different outcomes depending on where it is cultivated. From the far reaches of New Zealand (explosive aromatics!) to Chile’s Casablanca Valley (electric!), small pockets in Northern Italy (zippy!) and closer to home in the Napa Valley (tropical!) – all regions boast their particular style,  but nowhere does it quite reach its highest expression and cult-status as it does in France’s Loire Valley. Perhaps one of the best examples of matching grape to soil, Sauvignon Blanc thrives in the flinty-chalk-limestone patchwork of subsoil found throughout Sancerre. In their five-generation history as winemakers, the Champault family has passed down the wisdom of the soil to create cuvees based on characteristics derived from each parcel. In this bottling, two soil types are put to work to create a harmonious blend.  The “terres blanches” is mainly made up of chalky clay and represents 70% of the blend – this lends complexity and weight. From the Caillottes vineyard, rich in weathered Kimmeridgian limestone, comes rich fruit and minerality. The result is the undeniably delicious and dry side of Sauvignon Blanc. Full of delicate white peach, a twist of lime, a bouquet garni of fresh herbs and finally, the signature wet stone minerality that makes Sancerre so cherished around the world. You’ll do well to pair this with some goat cheese, a crusty baguette and the last sunsets of summer.
