Philippe Raimbault is the winemaker and owner of top class vinyards on both sides of the Loire growing top class Sauvignon Blanc grapes.
The vines grow slowly here due to the clay in the soil leading to vines that ripen more reliably. Plant growth is slower here because of the clay content in the soil allowing the vines to ripen more regularly and are less sensitive to climatic variations. This leads to a good knowing how long to wait for higher sugar content without loss of a good acidic balance is the secret here.
These wines are crisp with the ability to age. Delicately floral on the nose. Fruity, floral and a hint of smoke.
