The diverse soils of the Touraine region in the middle Loire Valley accounts for the large diversity of varietals in production there. With the luxury of time they have been able to establish which grapes do best in each vineyard, with Sauvignon Blanc occupying the biggest fraction of vineyard land. A collaboration between two fourth generation winegrowing families from the Touraine region, their sustainably farmed vineyards of old vines with naturally low yields lead to excellent concentration of flavors. A 60% portion of the harvested grapes are allowed to remain in contact with the skins prior to the start of fermentation, to extract a touch of aromatic spice. Touraine Sauvignon Blanc has a bit more stone fruit than Sancerre and a rounder mouthfeel.
