100% Sauvignon Blanc from Sancerre, Loire, France. Sustainably Farmed, Vegan, Woman Winemaker.

ABOUT: Elisa’s (the winemaker's) family has been in Sancerre since before they kept records… a long time. The family has been farming ever since and wine has always been a part, small at the beginning, of the farm. It is Elisa’s father Alain who started to focus only on wine in 1970.

The Gueneau estate is comprised of 35 acres of vineyards planted on the rather steep slopes that surround the villages of Sury-en-Vaux, Chavignol, and Sancerre. 80% of the vines are planted in the calcareous clay soils known locally as “terres blanches,” which give the wine its body, richness, and complexity. 

VINIFICATION: 25 year old vines growing on chalky-clayish soils known as Terres Blanches. Elevation 740 feet ASL. Sustainable farming. Unfined. Aged for 8 months in Stainless Steel tanks, on its lees. Estate grown, and bottled.

TASTING NOTES: Here you have a bodybuilder on a tight rope. Fruits are prominent with White Grapefruit juice, underripe Papaya, and Cactus Pear. The acid is precise and prickly, w/ bruised Sage and Resinous, Hoppy, herbaceousness persistent finish. Shiny White Stone minerality on the finish.

FOOD PAIRING: Seafood, Shellfish, Aperitif.
