Description

A very expressive nose of exotic fruits like pineapple, mango and grapefruit. On the palate this is a very fat and aromatic wine with a nice acidity to bring freshness

This 18 hectare vineyard surrounds one of the rare castles in Sancerre; Château de Thauvenay, which was first planted in 1819 by the Count of Montalivet. Facing the Loire, the vineyard is located on steep hills with very chalky ‘calcaire’ soils with some clay. The vines, a mix of young and old.
