Thauvenay is a 2-hectare plot with complex chalky-Portlandian-flinty soil and southeast exposure.
Varietal Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Elaboration: Immediate pressing to avoid skin contact or oxidation. Super gentle handling, fermentation in stainless, long time on lees, no malolactic.
Tasting Notes: “Masson-Blondelet better known for its Pouilly-Fume, also has vines in Sancerre in the village of Thauvenay. This brightly lit wine, grown on flint soil, is soft, fruity and ripe with green plum and citrus flavors that are lifted by minerality. – Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast
