- In stock, ready to ship
PRODUCER: Domaine Guy Allion has been in the Allion family for 4 generations, though was only really dedicated to wine production in the late 1960s. Cedric Allion, son of Guy, now runs the estate. This domaine with its beautiful Touraine-style house made out of tufa produces first class Sauvignon from vines grown on perruche (sandy-clay) soil. The estate is managed according to the Terra Vitis programme, a codified system which posits not only respect for the environment but knowledge of the land, parcel by parcel.
WINE MAKING: The grapes are picked at maximum ripeness and immediately transported to the winery to prevent oxidation.
TASTING NOTES: Although not organic, the vineyard operates a 'lutte raisonnee' approach using as little chemical treatments as possible. The result is delicious, clean, with uplifting notes of elder-flower, cut grass, asparagus and crunchy apples.
