GRAPE: Sauvignon Blan
Based in the heart of the Verdigny village of the Sancerre appellation where the chalky soils typical of the region produce Sauvignon Blanc of the highest order. Clos des Bouffants is aged on fine lees for six months to impart additional complexity and flavour. Aromas of ripe rhubarb and gooseberry leap from the pale lemon coloured glass, along with hints of lime, chalk and flint. Mineral texture, high acidity, vibrant green fruits and a long, lingering finish. Best enjoyed over the next year while at its freshest, as a partner to goats cheese torte, tomato salads or with freshly caught seafood.
