Grape Variety : Sauvignon Blanc 100%.
Soil : This wine comes from the “Le Chêne Marchand” vineyard that covers less than one hectare (68a 50ca). This exceptional terroir is made up of tufa chalk and the average age of the vines is 30 years.
Production technical data : The hand-picked grapes are pressed in whole bunches and then half are vinified in stainless steel and the other half in barrels. The fermentations last for 3-4 weeks. The wines remain separated for ageing, with half in vats and the other half going into new barrels and barrels previously used for 1 vintage, for a minimum of 10 months.
Tasting notes : The wine is rich and powerful: first of all on the nose, where we find a concentration of ripe fruit, vanilla and honey aromas, then on entry to the palate, where the wine is soft and full, then elegant and fine, with long lasting aromas. This Chêne Marchand is characterized by its explosion of flavours and its excellent aging potential.
Food-wine pairings : Lobsters and crayfish would pair well with this Chêne Marchand.
Serve at a temperature : of 10/14°C.
