is currently backordered. You may still purchase it now but we won't be able to ship it until it becomes available again.
Region: Loire Valley
Variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
The Domaine du Bouchot is located on the right bank of the Loire (Central France). Its wineries grow on the South-West slope of Saint-Andelain.
Our vineyard was an old farm renovated in 1966. Some of its lands are Kimmeridgian marls particularly conducive to vines.
In 1985, we developed a vineyard on our Côte des Prés and Fouinelles plots. In 1995, we extended it to the Vaurigny and Papillons plots where Portlandian soil, another slab of Upper Jurassic worldwide known for giving supple and fruity wines, outcrops.
As environmentalists, i.e. organic activists, we have been looking to produce “less but better”, achieving in 2004 an organic then biodynamic wine in accordance with the living.
Cuvée “Regain” is a selection of vines planted on soils dating back to the Portland period. This very rare and very particular soil gives it all its minerality (flinty notes).
With natural yeast, matured on fine lees for about 6 months in stainless steel vats. Can be kept for 2 to 3 years.
The organic growing method increases the soil value and wine concentration, thanks to a deep rooting, while enhancing soil biodiversity.
It shows backbone, and has an aroma structure typical of a great Pouilly-Fumé wine.
