WINES

Les Silex

APPELLATION
Touraine

100% Sauvignon blanc

VINIFICATION
225 feet above sea level. 25 to 35 years old vines. Chalky-clay soils and sands on clay-with-flints. Wild yeast. Inox aging

CHARACTERISTICS
Grown on a hillside of St Romain and Noyers sur Cher, on chalky-clay soils in one vineyard, and sands on clay-with-flints for the other. St Romain gives it power, richness and roundness; Noyers brings it liveliness and freshness. This is a luscious, mineral, fruity and refreshing Sauvignon which tastes like a good Sancerre at less than half the price.
