Fragrances of asparagus, citrus fruits peel and passionfruit are released by this straw-colored wine that has green highlights. This wine is well-balanced. It has also a real personality with notes of white flower and citrus fruits associated with peppered notes full of freshness.

Features

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.

This wine has won a gold medal at the General Agricultural Contest that took place in Paris in 2018. It was also awarded a gold medal at the International Contest of Sauvignon this year.

Domain and appellation

  • Domaine Guenault

    The Guenault domain is located on the highest lands of the wine-making town of Saint Georges sur Cher. It on the plateau called the “Hauts Lieux” that Achille Guenault-Cousin, the first generation of the Bougrier family, decided to establish. It is only 4 kilometers away from the famous Chenonceau Castle. Nowadays, the domain extends on more than 40 hectares.
     

    • Terroir: Grapes used to elaborate this wine come from three different territories. The first is constituted of fossil sands of the medium hills of the Gers department. It brings suppleness and roundness. The soil of the second terroir is made of flint clay coming from Francueil and from the locality of Bouges. Bringing acidity, the third one is characterized by its soil made of clay silts of Saint Georges.
       
    • Wine-making: Grapes in whole bunches are subjected to a pre-fermentation maceration to extract the Sauvignon aromas. It the vintage permits it, a maceration on sediment is also done during 2 to 3 days at low temperature. The musts don’t macerate so that they acquire an aromatic complexity. The wine-making process is made at low temperature. The wine rests then for a long time on lees to be enhanced.
