Grapes: 100% Chardonnay
Abv: 13%
Region: Loire, Touraine

Terroir: A single 0.96-hectare plot benefiting with an East-West orientation, nestled within the renowned terroirs of St Martin le Beau. Here, the soil composition consists of clay infused with flint, overlaying a sandy-clay texture at the surface. The vines planted in 1990 are trained with the Guyot single pruning method.

Winemaking: Hand-picked. grapes undergo direct pneumatic pressing. Fermentation occurs with indigenous yeasts, 50% in stainless steel tanks and 50% in French oak barrels of 225 and 400 litres, aged between 6 to 10 years. 

12 months aging. Two months prior to bottling, the wine is assembled and gently filtered using Kieselguhr (sedimentary rock that is composed of the fossilized remains of diatoms, which are a type of hard-shelled algae).

Tasting notes: A nose revealing aromas of white fruits, pear, and peach. The palate is round, with a generous volume that balances well, while delicate hints of bitterness enhance and add even more length to this divine bottle. A beautiful Chardonnay from Touraine!
