Description: The Côteaux du Giennois is a small appellation just north of world famous Pouilly Fumé. While the appellation produces tiny quantities of wine, it stretches 30 miles in length with small parcels of clay-limestone and silex dominant terrain. In the Giennois, Sauvignon Blanc reigns supreme and shares some of the the clean, flinty, mineral characteristics of nearby Pouilly Fumé (without paying the high-end price). The domaine is committed to natural farming methods. The resulting wines are aromatic, vibrant and succulent.
Food Pairing: Oysters, shellfish, sushi, seafood, white meats and light meals.
