Chenonceaux by Domaine des Caillots
Silver Medal Concours Mondial du Sauvignon 2017Fascinating and award-winning sauvignon blanc from the loire valley.
- Dry & Crisp
- Loire Valley
Refreshing and dry, this wine offers a delicate floral nose. The palate combines with elegance fresh fruit and mineral notes. While Chardonnay skews toward full-bodied wines, Sauvignon Blanc makes wines that tend to be lithe and light on their feet. Its calling cards are an herbal scent and tart, citrus-driven flavors
Sauvignon Blanc pairs ideally with sea food, salads and vegetables . It’s a perfect for aperitizers with friends

The best regions for Sauvignon are the Loire Valley in France, where it takes on a firm, minerally depth; New Zealand, where it recalls the tartness of gooseberries and, sometimes, an almost green, jalapeño-like note; California, where it pairs crisp grassiness and a melon-like flavor; and South Africa, particularly the Cape region, where it combines the minerality of France with the rounder fruit of California.
Domaines des caillots has been rewarded at various competitions such as the Concours Général Agricole de Paris and recently at the best sauvignon blanc world contest.
