314 in stock
Tasting Note: An expressive combination of green fruit, fresh-cut grass and minerals on the nose, followed by a crisp mouthful of greengage, lime and gooseberry.
Food Matching: This premium Loire Sauvignon is particularly well matched to shellfish but also delicious with fresh Asparagus, salads and Goats cheeses.
Vineyard: Frankk & Betty’s Sauvingon blanc vines are planted with a density of 6500 plants per hectare on chalky-clay soil and trained with the guyot system. This is the third generation of family winemakers carrying on the tradition in the village of Bue just 4KM from Sancerre. The Insolite is produced from parcels set on the chalkiest soils of their 24 Hectare property.
Vinification: The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are pressed as soon as they are picked. The must is allowed to settle, then the alcoholic fermentation begins. A few weeks later, the wine is clarified with a natural filtering agent (a clay soil derivative) to eliminate impurities. Lastly, it is racked, filtered, and bottled.
