Notes: This lovely Loire Sauvignon has an intense, elegant nose of grapefruit, tropical fruits & floral notes. On the palate, it is fresh & clean, with a fine mineral character & long finish.

 

Producer Info: La Voûte comes from a relatively new appellation called Touraine Chenonceaux, which was created in 2011 after 20 years in the making. Chenonceaux is known for the majestic Château de Chenonceau, featured on the La Voûte label. The wines are from selected parcels of vines located in Touraine. The Sauvignon Blanc is often not released until May following the vintage, spending around seven months on its lees to add weight, texture & complexity.

Domaine Joël Delaunay is a family-owned estate, located in the Touraine AOC. Today, fifth-generation owner Thierry Delaunay runs the domaine. Like his forward-thinking father, Joël Delaunay, who insisted on estate bottling in 1970, Thierry was the first Touraine producer to bottle under screwcap in 2004. Domaine Joël Delaunay has 34 hectares of vineyards, practising sustainable viticulture. Ninety percent of their production is white, with Sauvignon Blanc being the predominant grape variety, while the remainder is red, mostly Gamay & Cabernet Franc.

Thierry’s wines are best drunk while they are young & fresh. They are fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless-steel tanks after undergoing a short, cold maceration to bring out the aromas.
