'Les Parcs' vineyard is the coolest hillside vineyard in the village of Thésée, located on the right bank of the Cher. Composed of clay-limestone terroir, the vineyards selected for this cuvée showcase a fully ripe Sauvignon Blanc, which is fruit-forward and mineral-driven at the same time. Domaine Courtault-Tardieux's vines have been certified organic since 1998. Grapes are hand harvested and vinified with native yeasts, with no added sugar and only a small amount of sulfites used.
