A sprightly example of Loire Sauvignon Blanc. This wine is made with minimal added sulphur and fermented using the grapes’ natural yeasts. There are flavours of crunchy green apple and lime, along with notes of nettle and minerality. Philip Derouet, raised on a vineyard in nearby Saumur Champigny, was eager to return to his vinous roots and bought a vineyard. Together with his wife and daughter, they farm with a deep respect for the particular terroir on the right bank of the Cher River, ideal for the crisp, elegant Sauvignon Blanc we love.

Winemaker

Philippe and Aurelie Derouet

"Philippe Derouet always wanted to be a winemaker. His father and grandfather were winemakers, but fate intervened to keep Phillipe from taking over from his family. Instead, he became a chartered accountant and worked in the wine industry with vine growers and winemakers. This experience, combined with a childhood spent on vineyards and wineries, helped him become a real expert. However, it wasn’t until he bought Domaine des Chézelles from Alain Marcadet in June 2016 that Philippe Derouet put his expertise into practice. After a careful handover of the estate from Marcadet, Philippe began working with his daughter Aurélie (herself an oenology graduate) to produce the Sauvignon Blanc that made Domaine des Chézelles’ reputation."
