Domaine La Bruyère, Touraine Chenonceaux 2019
Established in 2016 the appellation of Touraine Chenonceaux is named after the famous Château de Chenonceau which spans the river Cher. Domaine la Bruyère's 20ha are located on the secondary valleys of Loir-et-Cher, on clay-limestone soils with a layer of flint. Vines are cultivated following the principles of sustainable agriculture. Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes (they also grow Sauvignon Rose) their Touraine Chenonceaux Blanc is the result of a rigorous selection process, both of parcels at harvest and of particular cuvées. The final wine rests on lees for six months before bottling.
With its clear robe of golden hues, fresh and round on the palate, this white wine reveals aromas of citrus with notes of white flowers.
Chilled this wine will work well with fish and seafood (including sushi) or goats cheese. Or depart from traditional Sauvignon pairings and try with chicken tagine or an Indian curry.
