les boucauds-

Situated just next to the estate, this location contains half of our Sauvignon Blanc plots. The vines are between 10 and 50 years old and grow in clay-limestone marl soil. Known locally as “Terre Blanches”, this clay soil dates back to the Kimmeridgian age of the secondary Jurassic era, 140 million years ago. 

​ This soil allows the vine to take root deep down. It provides fullness and richness to the wine, whilst the limestone subsoil and small shell sediments endow it with a fine minerality. 

​ The wine is vinified in stainless steel vats (approx 50%) and barrels (approx 50%). Ageing lasts 7 to 8 months, when the wine is bottled before the arrival of summer. 

​ On the nose, the wine reveals aromas of white fleshed fruit and citrus. The generosity of the soil has resulted in a wine that is full-bodied on the palate. The fine minerality and acidity gives the wine freshness. It can be enjoyed on its own or with shell-fish or fish dishes.
