This one is totally brand new. Brand new to the shop and also from a brand new appellation...
La Voûte comes from a relatively new appellation called Touraine Chenonceaux, which was created in 2011 after 20 years in the making. Chenonceaux is known for the majestic Château de Chenonceau, which features on the La Voûte label. The wines are from selected parcels of vines located in Touraine. The Sauvignon Blanc may not be sold until 1st May following the vintage, spending around seven months on its lees to add weight, texture and complexity.
La Voûte is situated in Touraine Chenonceaux, on the bank of the Cher Valley, 50 kilometres east of Tours near the famous Château de Chenonceau. The soil is clay and silex (a mixture of flint and sand) and the pruning method is simple Guyot.

Pale lemon in colour with green reflections. An intense and elegant nose combining grapefruit, tropical fruits and blackcurrant bud. The palate is fleshy and fresh, with clean minerality persisting on the finish.
A great one for the weekend, so swing by and grab a couple! Cheers!
