100% Sauvingon Blanc from the Loire in France. It's made by Sébastien Vaillant (who also vinifies wines for his family) and his friend Damien Boisseur. They are the only two members of the Vignerons de Valençay co-operative, making it the smallest of its kind in the Loire, and possibly in France. Their 40 hectares of vines are located on the hillsides surrounding the River Cher, which share much of the same Silex (flint) soils that make the finest of the Loire's most mineral wines. 

The flint in particular imparts the characteristic mineral quality, while patches of sandy/lime topsoils over very stony and clay subsoils add richness and depth. The 2018 vintage in Loire was excellent. The quality and quantity of grapes were outstanding across the region. 

This is very aromatic on the nose with notes of pineapple and apricot and a clean minerality. Its highly quaffable and easily bears comparison with many a Sancerre. It has a fragrant nettley character on the palate, along with a crisp acidity on the dry finish.

Outstanding value!
