This wine is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Touraine appellation (a less famous relative to Sancerre) but intentionally declassified to Vin de France. It comes from a single vineyard called Les Pichiaux which features clay and flint soils atop limestone. Planted in 2003, with an eastern exposure.

Direct press, fermented and aged on the lees in fiberglass vats (no oak contact). The wine is usually not filtered but might be in extreme cases. It receives 15mg per liter of sulfur just before bottling.

Beautiful expression of the varietal with notes of grapefruit, meyer lemon, and crushed stone - but the true star may be the texture.

Certified organic.

Noella has 6 hectares (plus some purchased fruit for other bottlings)
