Rich and grassy in style and without the aggression on many modern day Sauvignons.  Lots of juicy fruit and a slightly spicy undertone with aromas of pear and newly mown grass.

    Background Information
    Jacques Frelin is a  pioneer of the French organic wine movement since 1983. Originally from the Vendée region he worked initially with his now ex-wife at Domaine de Clairac, then with Louis Andrieu and Olivier Azan. He now runs the operation singlehandedly but with the backing of his old friend Frédéric Lachaux.

    Tasting Note
    The tireless Monsieur Frelin selected vats of the best organically produced Sauvignon Blanc in his part of the Midi to make this wine. The result is a great success – rich and grassy in style, without the aggression of much Sauvignon. Lots of juicy flavour and a slightly spicy undertone, with aromas of pears and newly mown grass.
