Having spent some time working in Spain in Ribera del Duero, Frédéric Signonneau decided to come back to Touraine and create his own domain in 2007 – rising out of the remains of the family estate in Cravant les Coteaux. Anxious to produce wine is as natural a way as possible, he isn’t totally closed to the idea of intervening. The harvests are carried out by hand, and the domain practises gravity-flow winemaking in concrete vats. Sulphites are only added when this is deemed necessary. His only objective is to craft a wine he likes. 

To make this cuvée, Frédéric Sigonneau has cultivated his way on a gravel terroir with limestone and sandstone. The grapes are then fermented in stainless steel tanks and the wine was aged for seven months on its lees. On tasting, it presents a golden color and a fine and fresh aromatic bouquet. On the palate, volume and tension are sublimated by a tangy finish. Serve it with fish in white butter or Asian dishes.
