    Touraine Sauvignon Blanc 2018

    Touraine, Loire Valley

    Aged on the lees for four months, and fermented with indigenous yeast, this wine has a ton of character for such a great value, and boxes well above its weight class. Lionel also has 8 distinct plots of Sauvignon Blanc, and each is picked and fermented separately. A cold, slow fermentation preserves freshness and aromatic purity. The soils are mostly limestone and sand.

    Touraine, Loire Valley

    Domiane de Pierre is a small estate in the heart of the Loire Valley run by 4th generation vigneron Lionel Gosseaume. That said, Lionel took an unusual path to winemaking. As a young man, he left the Loire to study agriculture and pursue a career. While he was away, his brother Thierry inherited his family’s domaine. When he came back home in the early 2000s, Lionel began looking for vineyards of his own. In 2007, he went to work for a next door neighbor at what would eventually become Domaine de Pierre. The neighbor’s name was Jean-Claude Maurice, and he tended the vines from 1960 to 2007, before handing over control to Lionel.
