Alexandre’s story in wine began with his Grandfather who farmed grapes in Tracy sur Loire, Pouilly-Fumé. After leaving school he worked for Matthieu Coste before taking over an old vineyard planted in the late 70’s in 2007. Since day one Alexandre has been farming organically (now Eco certified and Demeter certified) with the help of his horse called Phénomène and one full-time assistant. A true vigneron, having all wines produced from estate fruit only and vinified and bottled on site too.
100% Sauvignon Blanc from about 20-year old vines growing in Portlandian soil, with lots of small rocky top soil that retains heat. 50% of the grapes are at the start of boytrisation, giving a sweet lemon, tropical fruit flavor with balancing acid and a medium finish.Light golden color. Nose a bit of wax, funky. Palate dry, savory, textured/rich. Some stone fruit, dry peach. Fascinating and good with food, given the nattiness would drink now however.
