    Cuvée presentation

    This parcel-based cuvée is matured in foudre vats for two years. It is a Sauvignon Blanc marked by floral aromas (white flowers, jasmin) and honeyed fruits. The palate is well rounded, with a saline finish. This wine has now been downgraded to Vin de France status, but is nonetheless exquisite.

    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.
