Described by its growers as tasting like “crystalline limestone soaked in sunshine”, this astounding white is a blend of Sauvignons Blanc and Gris, Mauzac and Verdanel. The two Sauvignons account for three-quarters of the blend (the cuttings were sourced from the great limestone and flint vineyards of Dagueneau, Cotat and Vacheron in the upper Loire). The white portion of the vineyard is two hectares on the upper slope, where the fractured Kimmeridgian is covered by just 20cm of workable topsoil before the vine roots tap into the rock below. In traditional field blend style, all the grapes were whole-bunch pressed and co-fermented, which can take up to three months as the wild yeasts do their work. Emmanuel Bourguignon used a mix of mature barrels (70%) and stainless steel for fermentation. Aging was for 10 months in used barrels sourced from Domaine Jacques Selosse.
