Wine Making: 
This great value Valençay is an unoaked blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Chardonnay. Sébastien feels the Chardonnay adds body and texture to the wine and offers a slightly different flavour profile to that of its more famous neighbours, Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé.

Upon arrival at the winery, the Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were gently crushed with one third of the must left on skins to macerate for ten hours before pressing. The varieties were co-fermented in temperature-controlled stainless-steel tanks at 16-17°C, for approximately two months. After fermentation, the wine was racked, blended and aged on fine lees for one month before bottling.

The Chardonnay give this wine an expressive nose with intense aromas of lychees, peach and apricot. The palate offers flavours of white peach and ripe pear with a natural acidity and vibrant minerality.
