/ Loire Valley
Pebbly chalk and limestone subsoils in the vineyard along with warm summers result in a wonderfully vibrant, fruity wine. Michel Redde uses temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats to create a pure expression of the Sauvignon Blanc grape, then the wine rests on its lees until bottling.

A very approachable, classic Sancerre: zesty with a hint of grass as well as white fruit on the nose. Crisp on the palate, with pronounced but well-balanced acidity.
Pair with fish and white meat dishes.

about the grape +
Sauvignon Blanc has vivid, assertive aromas and flavors of gooseberries, citrus, herbs framed by tangy acidity. Oak contact adds tropical fruit, vanilla, lanolin and toast notes.

“At Michel Redde, we have turned towards a natural and low-intervention culture using controlled organic supplements for the best possible viticulture.”
