2016 Domaine des Grandes Esperances 'Roi Soleil' Sauvignon Blanc

$44.00

The Roi Soleil comes from a 30 year old vineyard plot growing on clay loam soil. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are hand picked under an early October sun, when fully ripe.


After harvesting low yields (35hl/h) by hand, this Sauvignon undergoes 12 hours of maceration on the skins and 48 hours cold storing in order to extract the maximum aromatic matter.


Fermentation then takes place in barrels used for 2 vintages. Aging is carried out in barrel with regular stirring up to re-suspend the fine lees and provide the wine with more nourishment.


Wine with a superb, golden yellow sheen, hence its name. The Roi Soleil develops very complex exotic fruit, vanilla and acacia notes on the nose. Smooth and delicious on the palate, and blessed with very mineral, vibrant length.
