Domaine de la Renne

This Sauvignon Blanc is a lovely and fresh white wine. It has a soft texture that extends into a persistent finish. Guy Leveque is known in the region for his wonderfully fresh zingy wine.

The land cultivated by the Leveque family since 1980 on the banks of the Cher is sandy, chalky parcels, giving a typically fresh and effervescent wine. Minimum SO2 is used, with the winemaker relying on pH and other factors for stabilisation. The Sauvignon is harvested at 4 am to preserve the freshness and aromatics. The wine rests on fine lees for several months, giving a richer texture.

Guy Leveque

Domaine De La Renne was established in 1900 by winemaker Guy Lévêque’s grandparents. Guy was originally pursuing a career in other areas but decided to return to the family vineyard in 1981.He steadily increased the estate from 2 hectares to the 66 hectares he cultivates today.

 

The two wines we have from M. Leveque represent great value, which is the real advantage of Touraine. For the Sauvignon Blanc varietal, the terroir is similar to Sancerre, where Sauvignon Blanc is much more expensive. As a result, Touraine is an appellation which has been enjoying great success in recent years.

 

His Pinot Noir is a lovely cool climate red, not a million miles away from the Burgundian style, but at a fraction of the price. Again, the combination of a dedicated winemaker and excellent natural conditions cannot be fabricated, and the quality shines through.

Domaine de la Renne

The vines are located on several communes: Couddes - St Romain Sur Cher - Chatillon Sur Cher - Mehers - Noyers Sur Cher. The 80 hectares of the estate are composed of clay-limestone, silica and sandy soil.
