Alexandre Bain remet au goût du jour le césar, un cépage bourguignon oublié avec lequel il assemble de pinot.  More info

Alexandre Bain continues to surprise us! With this cuvée from his merchant branch, he has brought up to date the taste of César, a forgotten Burgundian red variety, which he blends with Pinot Noir. Just as demanding with his reds as with his Sauvignon Blancs, he carefully selected these grapes from a Chablis producer in Yonne with organic certification. Taking them directly to his Loire domain, Alexandre begins with fermentation instigated by indigenous yeasts. There is no fining, filtering, or added sulphur. The result is a frank success. It has a delicate colour and a subtle nose of cherry, violet and spices. The silky palate has elegant and perfectly balanced tannins. The wine is already ready to drink, though it will become even more subtle with age. It will pair nicely with a poultry or game dish.

Vin de France N°89 Alexandre Bain (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 16°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.
