The Touraine Chenonceaux is the top model of Domaine des Caillots coming from the famous Slex soils (the sandy soil with flint clay and calcareous soil). The Sauvignon blanc grapes come from their most beautiful vineyard (single vineyard). After picking, the fermentation takes place in stainless steel vat at 17 – 19°C. They choose not to do this too cold in order to preserve the typicity of the terroir. After fermentation, the wine matures on its lees (sur lie) for 7 months in oak barrels.

This great Chenonceaux is straw yellow in the glass with golden reflections. In the nose nice fresh aromas of peach and orange. The wine has a nice harmony between fruit (apricot, peach, lychee) and structure (creamy, persistence, elegance). The Chenonceaux is a wine that reflects the great maturity of this cuvée with the mineral notes typical of these Silex soils.
