Emile Peynaud’s book “Le Goût du Vin” sparked my passion for wine. It also inspired the creation of this wine and the quest for new wine flavours, adding several grape and terroir profiles together in a new and original equation.
Sémillon is often unjustly overlooked in the Bordeaux region because it is less aromatic than the Sauvignon Blanc. I am convinced that when the grapes are harvested slightly overripe, Sémillon is the perfect complement to the Sauvignon Blanc from the Gers. It lends our blend smoothness and structure and adds gorgeous complementary aromas (particularly apricot).
Grape Varieties & Terroirs
60% Sauvignon on “sables fauves” (tawny-coloured sand)
40% Sémillon on sandy loam soil
This delectable blend will pair nicely with a carpaccio of smoked fish, some creamy veal stew or a mountain cheese.
Vin de France, permitting great freedom of expression!
