Domaine Saint Roch Touraine Sauvignon 'Les Demoiselles', 2017
A light and crisp Sauvignon Blanc from the Touraine AOC. Les Demoiselles displays a harmonious balance between the mineral, gun-flint taste that comes from the unique soil in the region and the Muscat-like sweetness of the Sauvignon grape. Superb with shellfish, grilled or fried fish, and escargots.
Domaine Saint Roch
The domaine Saint-Roch is located in the small commune of Meusnes. It's vineyard, perfectly situated on the slopes overlooking the village has the distinctive feature of growing vines on a unique type of soil called gunflint. The gunflint industry has long since disappeared but the vineyard for its part has flourished on this soil which gives the wines a character both original and unique.
