Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Bright light lemon yellow colour. Attractive open nose of white flowers, mimosas, blackcurrant buds with a hint of menthol. Well-balanced, fine, nervous, good character with green asparagus, blackcurrant and peppermint. Good length, sweet and sapid. Lovely gourmet wine.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

Domain and appellation
Domaine GUENAULT is located on the highest lands of Saint Georges sur Cher, the first wine-growing commune of the department.
Terroir: This estate, all in one piece, covers more than 40 hectares. The grapes come from three different terroirs: fossil sands from the middle slopes of the Cher which bring suppleness and roundness. Flint clays from Francueil and the locality of Bouges which add notes of ripe fruit. Clayey silts from St Georges which give the wine the acidity that will allow it to wait a few years.
Vinification: The grapes undergo a pre-fermentation maceration in whole bunches for 12 hours to extract the aromas of the Sauvignon, and if the year allows it, a maceration on the lees for 2-3 days at low temperature to extract the best of the terroir. The vinification takes place at low temperature, followed by stirring of the lees and long ageing on total lees to enrich the wine.
