Tasting Notes

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.

Producer details

Pierre Chainier source classic Loire varietal wines as well as owning some excellent properties throughout the region. For both elements of their wine business, they look to principles of agriculture raisonné alongside the most modern wine-making techniques. Within Touraine they have significant vineyard holdings and seven domaines, including Domaine de la Bruyère in the newly established appellation of Touraine-Chenonceaux. Conversely, Clos de Nouys, their 25 acre estate, is one of the oldest in the AOC of Vouvray. Here vines average 35 years of age and Clos de Nouys' parcels of vines were already listed amongst the best sites on geological maps dating from 1907.

In the vineyard

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.

Food Recommendations

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.
