"What a treat to find this in my subscription box. We opened it with friends on Saturday and they loved it. Will be buying a case for the next bank holiday."

"Delicious Sauvignon. One bottle was not enough."

"My new favourite white wine!"

Benoit and Emmanuelle Chauveau are our go to growers for this ever popular classic white wine. The grapes are from a small plot of 1.5 hectares producing only 8000 bottles. The couple farm with utmost respect for the environment, climate and soil – no chemicals are used with the focus on maintaining the quality of the vineyard for future generations. The soil is aerated and only the very best grapes are selected for vinification. Traditional production methods are used including ageing on the lees and a second natural fermentation. No oak. Very light filtration to preserve all the flavour and freshness of the fruit.

Bright, expressive nose packed with gooseberry and chamomile. Complex palate with plenty of minerality alongside ripe green apple, lemon and honeysuckle with a very light hint of smoke and spice. Beautifully long finish. Exceptionally well balanced.
