Domaine Roc de Chateauvieux Touraine Sauvignon Blanc
Made from 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Cher Valley on flinty clay soils, traditionally made. Touraine AOC.
The feminine comparison to the Paul Buisse, bright passionfruit, tangelo and lemon-lime on the nose with a twist of sweet daphne, tangy and dry on the palate with zesty citrus, cut grass and restrained minerality.
Pierre Chainier house has a long wine history in Bordeaux reaching back to the 1700s, and relative newcomers to the Loire Valley. They now control 250 hectares of vines through the Loire with vineyards from Muscadet to Sancerre with the varied individual terroirs of chalky limestone of the Paris basin, to the flinty clay soils of the Cher Valley. Husband and wife control different vineyards and produce interestingly different styles of wines.
