Yield 40 hl/ha Vinification and Ageing Fermentation in oak barrels (225 and 400 L) and oak vats (30 and 50 hl). Ageing in 25% new oak - 10 months with lees stirring. Tasting Comment The wine is a fine pale yellow colour, the nose is very pleasant, the Sauvignon expresses an aromatic palette with hints of exotic fruits (passion fruit, pineapple) but also aromas reminiscent of orange zest, peach. On the palate, it is rich, with roundness and a dominant but not excessive acidity. The finish is slightly saline as is often the case with Carbonnieux white wine, ageing is discreet. Fruit and richness are present, the clay and clay gravelly soils have contributed to the aromatic freshness of this wine.
