Designation : VIN DE PAYS D'OC BLANC - SAUVIGNON
Grape variety : Sauvignon Blanc - vines from the vineyards of Central France (Sancerre, Pouilly Fume). It has adjusted very well to the more southern environment.
Origin : The vineyards of Pays d'Oc are the largest in the world, three times those of Bordeaux and six times those of Australia. Located between the southern Côtes du Rhône and Carcassonne.
Vinification : The grapes are harvested when just ripe. They are rapidly pressed. The must is racked at a low temperature for about 12 hours with SO2 and seeded with yeast. Fermented at a low temperature (17 - 19° C).
Alcoholic fermentation : 1 week. The wine is fined and stored under inert gas at a low temperature.
Soil : Varied over the whole producing area : this vatful has been especially selected on clay-chalky and stony soils.
Colour : Clear, very pale yellow with faint green highlights.
Nose : Very expressive with notes of white flowers, pineapple, tropical fruit and mineral tones.
Palate : Round and pleasing, fine balance, with notes of lemon and grapefruit.
Food pairings : Fine wine that goes perfectly well with seafood, white meat and some cheeses.
Serving condition in C° : 10 - 12
Alcohol content : 12%
Cellar potential : 1 - 2 years
