Description

This is a long established, traditional farming-winemaking family with records going back as early as 1560 when Sébastien Clément was already a renowned winemaker in Menetou-Salon.  The region has history of viticulture going back to 1060AD.

100% Sauvignon Blanc from 20-40 year old organically farmed, southwestern exposed vineyards on Kimmeridgian marl-limestone.

The grapes gently handled via gravity, hand sorting, and pneumatically pressed whole-berries.  Cold stabilization, then indigenous yeasts for fermentation in temperature controlled inox tanks.  Maturation on the fine lees and then bottled in the spring.

A refined Sauvignon Blanc with citrus and passion fruit notes. Fresh quenching acidity with underlying minerality on the extended finish.  Perfect for shellfish and fin fish.  .
