A natural and authentic biodynamic wine full of finesse, superb minerality and freshness. More info

This 100% Sauvignon cuvée comes from Kimmeridgian limestone soils (marl with tiny oyster sediments), a richer and more structured soil. It is a cuvée without added sulphites, aged in barrels for 18 months. This wine has fruity aromas (citrus fruits, white fruit, exotic fruits) and mineral notes. On the palate, the balance is perfect, without the exuberance of the nose, but, on the contrary, great finesse, superb minerality, breadth, freshness and very good length with a bitter end note. A very fine Pouilly-Fumé wine!

Vin de France Mademoiselle M Alexandre Bain (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 15°C.

    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.
