|Grapes||Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon, Muscadelle|
Pale gold, clear and bright, gentle continuous mousse
Notes of melon, green apple & warm citrus
Explosion of fruits, well-balanced acidity, soft subtle mousse, full-bodied, satsuma & passion fruit in the forefront, hints of biscuit, leading into a long finish of pink grapefruit.
We are an independent producer of organic white wines within the region of Bordeaux, 10 minutes south of St. Emilion, and where our vineyard sits quietly alongside the banks of the river Dordogne.
All our wines are produced from our own hand-picked grapes at Monfaucon, being Muscadelle, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon & Chardonnay, where we are fastidious about our grape selection, as only the best grapes from each year become our bottled wines. We allow the wild yeasts in the winery to work their magic to produce our end product, thus extracting all the good flavours from the grapes. From the vine to the bottle, all processes are completed within the estate boundaries.
We do not believe in " typicity", preferring each year to produce hand made wines that are naturally good, and free from the restraints of making white wines that taste just like all the others.
We believe that high levels of alcohol can mask the true fruit flavours of the wine so all of our wines are lighter in abv, which makes for a perfect anytime of day wine to be enjoyed, without the after effects of a heavier wine.
We call them our "no hangover" wines.
