    Cuvée presentation

    This beautifully-named cuvée is made as naturally as possible. Alexandre Bain stays tru to his philosophy of ‘producing authentic wines without harming people, the earth or the environment’. Founded in 2007, this 11-hectare domain produces 100% Sauvignon wines. The vineyard is cultivated organically and biodynamically, meaning that no herbicides or synthetic products are used. The grapes are harvested by hand, and only at full maturity. Some of the more vulnerable parts of the terroir are ploughed with the help of a horse called “Phénomène”. Fermentation is instigated by indigenous yeasts and sulphur is added only in homeopathic doses. This cuvée has a wonderful balance of crystalline texture and ripe flavours, tautness and aromatic complexity. A superb wine! Serve at 12°C. You can drink it now or age it for a while. It will pair nicely with crayfish or pike dishes.

    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.
