The Wine

This is an aromatic and vibrant Sauvignon Blanc. From approx. thirty year old vines, they have reached a good age and are producing grapes with a noticeable level of concentration. Aged in stainless steel to emphasize vibrancy, minerality and fragrant character, this bright white bursts with notes of quince, nectarine, tangy minerality and subtle white floral characteristic. Don't serve too cold as you really want to preserve its aromatics! (between 13-15°C).

About the Wine Maker

Sébastien Treuillet stems from a long line of grain farmers, but he is the first in his lineage to become a wine farmer. Alongside his 12 hectares of vines, he also cultivates 140 hectares of cereals.

His vines fall across three appellations: Pouilly-Fumé, Côteaux-du-Giennois, and Vin du Pays du Val du Loire. The majority of his vines are in the Pouilly-Fumé AOC, with 3.5 hectares in Côteaux-du-Giennois and 2 hectares of Vin de Pays.

His passion for wine began at the age of 15, when he would go to stay with a friend in Sancerre whose family were vignerons. He went on to work for Pierre Dézat (Verdigny) and then the Champaults (Champtin), before starting his own domain in 1991. Since then, he has worked hard to continuously improve his estate and practices.

Treuillet principally grows Sauvignon Blanc in the village of Fontenille, about seven kilometres from Pouilly-sur-Loire. He employs a number of techniques in his vineyards, including special vine-training and pruning, to keep yields low and the quality high.

He grows on a number of different soils, including limestone clay, Kimmeridgian, sandy soils, and some caillottes (limestone-rich pebbles).
