Sauvignon Blanc 100%
2021 was a challenging vintage for France. In this region, the dry winter setup good conditions for the winter pruning and plowing in March. Unfortunately, April brought multiple episodes of frostbite, burning the buds and preventing the sap from reaching the twigs. 70% of the yield was lost, primarily affecting the white varietals (red one’s maturity is always later in the season). Nevertheless, the grapes left were of good quality, since there were less clusters to share the nutrients.

Sandy gravel soil, oceanic climate with high igrometrie yet with very good airing. Excellent conditions for Sauvignon blanc with strong aromatics.
