A lovely blend of Alsace grapes and Sauvignon Blanc mastered by Alexandre Bain. More info

For his only white négoce cuvée, Alexandre Bain selected grapes from wine makers as passionate as he is in Alsace. In this cuvée, we find 50-year-old, biodynamic Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc, as well as organic Sylvaner and Sauvignon Blanc macerated by Alexandre himself. It is then vinified together with indigenous yeasts, with no fining or filtering, and only a small amount of sulphites added. It is matured for a year in barrels made in Alsace. It has a brilliant appearance and a very expressive nose, with delicious notes of citrus and white fruit. The palate is lively with a nice acidity. A cuvée to enjoy within five years and to share among friends as an aperitif! It can also be served alongside white fish.

Vin de France N°68 Alexandre Bain (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Poisson à chair blanche, Tartare de saumon, Dorade au gingembre.

Information about domain Alexandre Bain

The son of a winemaker, Alexandre Bain set up his own domain in 2007 at Tracy-sur-Loire (Pouilly-Fumé), after studying oenology at the Beaune Lycée Viticole and after various placements where he worked in particular with winemakers who use natural, organic and bio-dynamic methods. Today his vineyard, covering an area of eleven hectares, has biodynamic certification and is worked using horses. The wines are made without any inputs (indigenous yeasts), they are neither chaptalised nor filtered and contain virtually no sulphites. Alexandre Bain places great emphasis on harvesting his grapes once they are completely ripe. This tends to lessen the Sauvignon's varietal aspect (boxwood aroma) while emphasizing the terroir instead, but on the other hand it brings out the mineral quality and a fine acidity. Bain's originality means that his wines do not full under an appellation. Regardless of this wine lovers remain loyal to him. With rare candour, Alexandre Bain's wines express the typical characteristics of their terroir; they are deep and generous, with pure aromas and incredible drinkability.
