Sauvignon Blanc

This part of the Loire is considered Chenin country, and there is certainly a hubristic bias against Sauvignon. When they purchased the vineyards to create the domaine, a small parcel of Sauvignon was included in the deal. For many years it was simply sold off to négoce, but in 2018 on a lark they decided to keep the grapes and make a white wine. The result was quite satisfying and now this small vineyard of Sauvigon has been accepted as part of the Hauts Baigneux family.
