Grape variety : Sauvignon Blanc - vines which originated in the vineyards of Central France (Sancerre, Pouilly Fume). It has adjusted very well to the more southern environment.

Alcoholic fermentation : 1 week. The wine is fined and stored under inert gas at a low temperature.

Soil : Varied over the whole producing area : but grapes are mostly selected from 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.
