"Bone-dry, with a central citrus core, surrounded by leafy, herbal, green aromas of elderflower, asparagus and gooseberry, this wine will act as a thirst quencher for spicy fish dishes..." Matthew Jukes
Cool temperature-controlled fermentation and short maturation in stainless steel.
Thierry Delaunay is a fine example of the best of the new generation of French wine makers. Brought up by his father Joël to appreciate the traditional nuances of terroir and climate, Thierry has enthusiastically embraced modern winemaking techniques and styles. The diversity of different soils in the Domaine's vineyards explains the number of different red and white grape varieties: the clay and flint soils or "perruches" give the red wines distinctive qualities, while the white and rosé wines, including Delaunay's award-winning Touraine Sauvignon, derive their style and delicacy from the finer, less stony soils.
