Each year, Domaine Courtault-Tardieux begins their harvest with the 'Les Sagères' vineyard. This flinty site is located at the top of the hillside of the village of Thésée, on the right bank of the Cher River. This terroir showcases an aromatic and floral expression of Sauvignon Blanc. 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.
