Les Cailloux du Paradis' 100% Touraine Sauvignon Blanc.

Quartz is vinified in barrel & aged for 12-24 months in oak.  Golden straw in the glass with shimmering pale highlights. The nose offers sliced apple & poached pear backed by apple chutney spiced with brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon & allspice. The palate is very nutty, with a firm acidity. The wine finishes long & vibrant, with great mineral & core fruit presence & a lingering inner mouth perfume of pear eau de vie.

It drinks well in its youth, though decanting is highly recommended, & the wine can age for a decade if not more.

Located in the center of Soings-en-Sologne, 35 kilometers from Blois, Claude Courtois and his sons are dedicated to the meticulous crafting of their wines through traditional methods, staunchly championing the cause of natural wine. The vineyards strictly follow principles that prohibit the use of pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemical fertilizers, or synthetic substances. The outcome is wines that are pure and vibrant, a testament to the excellence of biodynamic winemaking.
