Domaine du Pré Baron, Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2019
100% estate grown-fruit from 25 year-old-vines growing in sandy soils on clay subsoil. Grapes are harvested at optimum maturity after careful analysis and tasting, and are then gently pressed. 20-25% will be macerated on the skins, depending on the characteristics of the vintage. Fermentation is slow at 18°C for three weeks in stainless steel vats. There is no malolactic fermentation. Wines are matured on their fine lees until bottling in the following spring. Jean-Luc manages his domaine sustainably and works according to the principles of Terra Vitis.
A riper style than usual with inviting peachy fruit on the nose and an intense, full-flavoured palate with some classic green pepper notes and a satisfying, pithy finish.
A tasty aperitif and excellent with grilled fish and seafood.
