A balanced cuvée with tautness and ripe flavours. More info

This cuvée is made entirely from Sauvignon Blanc, and Alexandre Bain is rigorous in his work. His aim is ‘to produce wine in a way that does no harm to people, the planet, or the environment'. Founded in 2007, his 11-hectare domain is home to organically and biodynamically grown vines, meaning there are no herbicides or synthetic products used in the vineyard. The grapes are harvested by hand, and only at maturity. Some of the more vulnerable parts of the land are ploughed with the help of a horse called “Phénomène”. Known for his natural vinifications, Alexandre Bain crafts a Pouilly-Fumé that exhales an intense aromatic bouquet of exotic fruit and white flowers. The palate is well-balanced with a tautness and ripe flavours. This wine can be enjoyed as much in its youth as after some years of aging. Serve cool (12°C). It will pair nicely with cheese tartines, salmon tartare, or a smoky Coeur de Touraine.

    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.
